First Prize, $50.00; Second Prize, $25.00; Third Prize, $15.00; Fourth Prize, $10.00 

THERE are hundred.s of good amateur 
photographers in the Kodak organ- 
ization, but a good many of them have 
been "hiding their lights under a bushel," 
so to speak. So in order to scare them 
out into the open, and to show the rest 
of you how much pleasure there is in 
Kodakery, we propose to hold a Quarterly 
Amateur Photographic Competition, open 
to all employees of the Eastman Kodak 
Company (except as hereafter specified). 


The First Quarterly Competition will 
begin July 1st and close September 30, 

Subjects — Landscapes and Marines; 
Vacation "good time" pictures; Hunting 
and Fishing Scenes. 

AWARDS $100.00 (ASH 

First prize $50.00 

Second prize !25 . 00 

Third prize 15 . 00 

Fourth prize 10.00 


These com])etitions will be open to all 
employees of the Eastman Kodak 
Company, except demonstrators, those 
who have been professional piiotog- 
raphers, and those, the nature of whose 
employment with the company would 
class them as professional photographers. 

The exposures must be the work of the 
contestant, but the developing and 
printing can be done by someone else. 

The negatives of the prize winning prints 
shall become the property of the Eastman 
Kodak Company, and the negatives 
delivered to the Editor of the Kodak 
Magazine before the awards are paid. 
Prints from such negatives will be used 
in the Kodak ^Magazine, for advertising 
or sample print purposes, or for any 
other purpose the company may elect. 
All prints must be mounted but not 

The name and address of the contestant 
and the designation of the camera used 
must be legibly written on the back of 
each print. Contestants who are awarded 
prizes for photographs which include a 
jjerson or persons must furnish to us 
the written consent of the subject or 
subjects (in case of a minor, the written 
consent of a parent or guardian) to the 
use of the picture in such manner as we 
may .see fit. 

Blanks for this purpose will be supplied 
by the Editor upon request. 

Contestants may enter any number of 
prints (but no contestant will be awarded 
more than one prize) and .^end them in 
at different times, up to the closing 
date of each competition. Prints sub- 
mitted will not be returned unless spe- 
cially recpiested.

WITH the great variety of products 
we manufacture, there are many in- 
teresting stories regarding their produc- 
tion, and the uses to which they are put. 
We become so accustomed to the finished 
product that it, to us, often seems com- 
monplace, and we give little or no thought 

skill is required in the proper melting and 
cooling before it comes in the rough to 
our skilled lens makers. The exact shape 
and curve of each different type of lens 
must be carefully calculated by an expert 
optical mathematician, and his formulas 
followed to the one ten thousandth part 



to the science and skill that have made it 
possible. For this reason many of us give 
no particular thought to the bit of shining 
glass in the front of a Kodak; we know 
that it is called a lens and that it is what 
produces the picture image and let it go 
at that. 

A trip through our lens factory in the 
Hawk-Eye Works, would find you leaving 
with a tremendous respect for that same 
bit of glass, and contented with a highly 
interesting experience. 

There is nothing haphazard about the 
production of even the lenses employed in 
our least expensive cameras. 

The various ingredients for the glass 
must be most carefully selected, and much 

of an inch in order to. pass our inspectors. 
Now this is not going to be a technical, 
nor a scientific story about how our lenses 
are produced, but just a plain statement 
of a few interesting facts. When you 
look through our catalogues, you note 
that the Kodak, Premo and Brownie 
Cameras are listed with several different 
kinds of lenses, the smaller cameras being- 
fitted with what are called either Men- 
iscus, Meniscus Achromatic, Rapid Recti- 
linear, or Anastigmat lenses. The larger 
instruments have either Rapid Rectilinear 
or Anastigmat lenses, while the Special 
Kodaks, the Graflex and Aeroplane 
Cameras are fitted only with Anastigmat 
lenses. Quite possibly these names will 




not mean anything to you, so let us have 
a simple explanation. The simplest lenses 
which can be used for photographic pur- 
poses are made from a single piece of glass, 
the form being a crescent shape, which 
affords the best definition — hence the 
name "Meniscus." 

A Meniscus lens can be readily used 
only in a fixed focus camera where the 
maker of the camera has put it in the 
correct position for forming a sharp image 
on the film. If such a lens were used on a matter how carefully 

you focused the image, your negatives 
would not be sharp unless the difference 
between the focusing point of the rays 
which we see produce the image, and the 
other rays of light which affect the film 
was provided for. 

Just a muddle of words? All right, 
let's make this a bit clearer: Do you hap- 
pen to remember one of those old- 
fashioned lamps with a shade of prisms — 
you know those three-sided strips of glass, 
and when the light shone through one of 
these, you would see a lot of different 
colors just like a rainbow? 




Now white light — daylight, is composed 
of rays of light of these different colors: 
violet, blue, green, yellow, orange and red, 
just as you saw them through the prism. 
After passing through a Meniscus lens, 
these rays of light do not come to a focus 
at the same point; the yellow rays which 
our eyes see produce the image, do UDt 
come to a focus at the same point as the 

blue rays, which are the ones whicli 
affect the sensitive film. 

It was discovered a good many years 
ago that by combining two different kinds 
of glass in a lens, the blue and yellow rays 
could be made to come to a focus at the 
same point. Such lenses are called 
"Achromatic." The best shape for an 
Achromatic lens is the crescent, or ^lenis- 
cus, so such lenses are called "Meniscus 
Achromatic." Owing to their form, these 
lenses produce a slight curvature of the 
edges of the picture. This doesn't cut any 
figure in landscape pictures or portraits, 
but when the picture has straight lines 
near the margin, these lines would appear 
slightly curved. 

To get around this the lens maker puts 
two Achromatic lenses together with the 
stop, or diaphragm, between them, so 
the curve produced by one lens is offset by 
the other; such a lens is called a Rapid 
Rectilinear, because it gives straight line 
images, and "Rapid" because, having a 
focal length half that of the two single 
lenses, and with the same stop it passes 
four times as much light, and recjuires 
only one-quarter of the exposure. 



As to Anastigmat lenses — the aristo- 
crats of the lens world; about thirty 
years ago it became possible to produce 
optical glass from which lenses could be 
made that would give flat field images 
with the blue and yellow rays at the same 
focus. Anastigmat lenses have better de- 
fining power, but demand the most careful 
and highly skilled workmanship, just such 
as we have in the Hawk-Eye plant. 

Let us follow the progress of a piece of 
optical glass through the Hawk-Eye 
plant. The glass comes in slabs about 
an inch thick, eight inches long and eight 
inches wide, which are first cut into thin 
squares by means of diamond-tipped 
rotary saws and then ground into rough 
discs. These discs are now attached by 
means of black pitch to what is called a 
blocking body for the first, or rough grind- 
ing. After the rough grinding, each lens 
is examined for chips or other defects. 

Each flat backed lens is then reduced to 
the proper thickness with a milling 
machine, and then subjected to three 
other grinding operations with difl'erent 
grades of emery. 

In the fine grinding, the greatest care 
is taken to bring the lens down to exact 
dimensions, the accuracy being deter- 
mined to within two or three hundredths 
of a millimeter, a millimeter being only 
about four thousandths of an inch. 

After grinding, the lenses are taken to 
a polishing machine where they are 
polished with rouge in a special machine. 
During the polishing process the lenses 
are frequently examined with a magnify- 
ing glass to make sure they are retaining 
their proper form. Other tests for accu- 
racy are observed so that accuracy greater 
than one fifty-thousandth of an inch is 
often attained. 

After the lenses are removed from the 
blocking body and placed in racks, a very 
thorough examination is made to detect 
any further imperfections, such as 
scratches, uneven polishing and the like. 

Passing all these inspections, each lens 
is now placed in a special lathe, where 
after it has been centered, its edge is 
carefully ground. A very accurate gauge 
is used to determine the diameter, the 
accuracv of which is also well within two 





or three hundredths of a miUimeter. 

After final inspection, the complete 
lenses are carefully wrapped in tissue 
paper and stored in the stock vaults until 
needed for mounting. 

The metal mounts must also be made 
with the greatest accuracy, as the distance 
between the lenses that comprise the com- 
plete lens is scarcely of less importance 

than the curves of the lenses themselves. 

At every step in the process of lens 
making in the Hawk-Eye Works, accuracy 
is the watchword that has made possible 
the high reputation of the Kodak Anastig- 
mat lenses. 

The wonderful work of the Hawk-Eye 
Aerial lenses is a story in itself and will be 
told in a following issue.

General Safety Supervisor 

TEX years ago, the Camera Works 
engaged a man aa'Iio has proved that 
it is indeed possible to "rise from the 
ranks"! Charles Thompson worked in 
the Kodak Assembling Department until 
his genius for safety efficiency was dis- 
covered, and we are proud to state that 
Mr. Thompson has returned to the com- 
pany in the capacity of General Safety 
Supervisor, having jurisdiction over the 
Safety Departments in the various 
branches of the company throughout 
the organization. 

In order to get better acquainted with 
our new Safety Chief, a brief history of 
his career is appended. 

Charles H. Thompson was born in Oril- 
lia, Canada, in 1876, and became an 
American citizen in 1918. He was edu- 
cated at the New Market Collegiate 
Institute and joined the Canadian 
Army in ISQ'^, later being tran.sf erred to 
England. During those 18 years of 
military life he was promoted from a 
private to a Major, being instructor in 
the Royal School of Infantry, Toronto, 
and later in the Officers' Training School 
in Sandhurst, England. Major Thomp- 
son served with the British forces in the 
South African War from 1889 to 1901. 
being engaged in twenty-seven battles, in 
one of which he was severely wounded. 

He was at one time commander of a war 
prison camp at St. Helena. 

When the European war affected 
America's policies, the Government re- 
cfuested the release of Mr. Thompson from 
the company, and appointed him a 
Safety Engineer in the ordnance depart- 
ment. After six months duty he re- 
quested a transfer to the Infantry and 
commanded the 13th Company of 154th 
Depot Brigade at Camp Mead. 

In 1919 the Fire and Accident preven- 
tion branch of the U. S. Army assigned 
Mr. Thompson to take charge of activi- 
ties in New York, New England and New 
Jersey, where he was apjjointed Chief of 
the Section. 

Last month ]Mr. Thompson obtained 
his honorable discharge from the service 
in order to continue his career as indus- 
trial safety engineer, having twice risen 
to Major in the U. S. and British Armies. 

All of which proves that Mr. Thompson 
is a fighter, both militarily and industri- 
ally. The Eastman Kodak Company has 
added to its reputation the fact of its 
pioneer work along accident prevention 
lines, and Chief Thompson does not 
intend to let that reputation lessen. It 
is his desire to get the co-ojieration from 
all the plants, and so co-ordinate what is 
best in safety, for safety's sake. There are 
great possibilities in prevention work in 
the Kodak Company, and the ^[anagers 
are doing all j)ossible to educate employees 
into thinking before an accident can occur. 
Safety Supervisor Thompson is planning a 
regular accident j)revention conven- 
tion among the committees from the 
Eastman plants and great benefit should 
be derived from an exchange of safety 
ideas, together with the expert advice 
which we will receive from our new 
General Safety Sui)ervisor. 

Don't quit too soon. It takes a great 
many blows to drive a nail, but one to 
clinch it.

Have you ever stopped to figure out 
that the biggest part of your job is to 
think straight? It doesn't make a bit of 
difference as to what your particular job 
is, either. "I'm Bill Smith, and my job is 
to sweep the floors in our building. What 
does thinking straight have to do with my 
job; all I've got to do is to sweep, isn't it.^" 

"I'm Tommy McGee, an errand boy, 
or I'm Mary Johnson, a stenographer; all 
I've got to do is to do my work well 
enough to get by, isn't it.' What do you 
mean — straight thinking?" 

Straight thinking means that you have 
to stop and think just how your job hooks 
up with every other job in the company, 
from the president down. Xo matter 
what your job is, you have the power to 
do the company a whole lot of good or a 
whole lot of harm. 

Bill Smith's job is to sweep floors; Bill 
gets a bit careless, because he thinks his 
job doesn't amount to much, and he slights 
a corner here and there or pushes some 
rubbish under a bench instead of removing 
it. Bill still holds his job, so what differ- 
ence does it make to Bill? It makes just 
this difference: some one else who is not 
thinking straight sees that Bill is slighting 
his job and so he slacks up a bit, and so it 
grows like a snowball rolling down a hill. 

Tommy loiters on the way, or leaves a 
package in the wrong office, causing some 
one else to lose valuable time, or being put 
to much trouble to locate it. 

Mary takes a half-day off because she 
was out pretty late at a dance the nighl 
before and just "doesn't feel good," and a 
number of important letters are delayed, 
or else have to be handled by someone 
else who is thereby overcrowded. 

Tommy and Mary do these things 
because they are not thinking straight. 
Sooner or later these things wdll come 
home to roost, because if you do not 
think straight, you begin to lose your 
self-respect, and when you lose that, you 
are on the skids. Some people have 
bigger jobs than yours in the organiza- 
tion. When this is so, you may rest 
assured that it is because these people are 
worth more to the company, and they 
didn't get to be worth more until they 
learned to think straight. 

Get this thought straight: every good 
thing j'?ou do for the company is a good 
thing done for yourself. If you want to 
do your best for yourself — do your best 
for the company employing you — you 
can't "get there" any other way. 


"Oh, Min! where's the shears?" 

"Mary, have you got 'em? "Take 
them right in to your father." 

"Oh, Min, look! aren't they just the 
cute little chaps — been working for us 
every minute, too." 

The above is the scenario for a movie of 
a man clipping coupons from his Liberty 

Sure you worked hard to pay for your 
bonds, but you did get them paid for, so 
you will not only get your money back, 
but interest right along until they mature. 
Don't bother about the market price of 
the bonds, you get your interest on the 
full value just the same. The lower the 
market price, the better the time to buy, 
not to sell them. Buy now if you can; 
there is no safer investment. 




MOST of us have heard or seen in the 
newspapers something about the 
new landlord and tenant laws which 
went into effect in this State on April 1st. 
But from the number of requests for in- 
formation on the subject which have been 
received at the Legal Department, it is 
evident that few know exactly what 
changes these laws have brought about. 

There are only two provisions of the 
new laws which are of particular impor- 
tance to the ordinary landlord or tenant. 
Both of them apply only to property 
located within the city limits, and only to 
property used for dwelling purposes 
other than a room or rooms in a hotel, 
lodging house or rooming house. There- 
fore, if you are rooming, or if your home 
is in the suburbs, you will not be par- 
ticularly interested in this article. 

The first provision above referred to 
is that where a landlord tries to put a 
tenant out by legal proceedings in City 
Court on the ground that the tenant has 
failed to pay his rent, he (the landlord) 
must show the judge either that the rent 
of the premises has not been increased 
more than twenty-five per cent, over 
what it was a year before, or that the rent 
has not been increased over the amount 
actually paid by the tenant for the pre- 
ceding month. For example, if you get 
notice that your rent is to be increased 
to a certain amount beginning on a cer- 
tain day, before you pay that increase 
you should get out your rent book or look 
up your rent receipts, find out just what 
the amount of rent was a year ago, dating 
back from the time the increase is to go 
into effect, and, if the increased rent is 
more than twenty-five per cent, in excess 
of that amount, you should politely in- 
form your landlord that the amount of 
rent demanded is excessive and offer him 
the same amount which you have been 
paying. By all means, do not pay the 
increase once, and begin to complain 
about its unreasonableness later, because 
then it is too late. 

It is important to remember that this 
provision of the law applies to the 
premises, not to the particular landlord or 
tenant — that is, if you find that you are 
asked to pay an increase of more than 
twenty-five per cent, over the amount 
of the rent of that house or apartment a 
year ago. Even though you don't know 
who then owned it or lived in it, you 
should refuse to pay such increase. 

The other provision of the new law 
which is important is that when a land- 
lord tries to put a tenant out by legal 
proceedings in the City Court on the 
ground that the term, or time for which 
the tenant rented the place, has expired, 
the judge may, upon application by the 
tenant, issue a "stay;" that is, postpone 
the whole proceeding for any length of 
time he sees fit up to one year. In order 
to get such a "stay" the tenant must con- 
vince the judge that he has searched 
diligently and cannot find another suit- 
able dwelling place for himself and 
his family similar to the premises then 
occupied. The effect of this is as follows: 
If you should get a notice today requiring 
you to vacate the house you are living in 
on or before a certain date, you should at 
once begin to look for another place, 
keeping a written record of where and of 
whom you make inquiries. If, when the 
date you were asked to move arrives, you 
have not found a place, you should in- 
form your landlord of that fact and tell 
him you are continuing to search and 
will move as quickly as you can find 
another suitable place. If. in spite of 
that, your landlord begins legal proceed- 
ings to put you out, you or your lawyer 
should ask the judge for a "stay," telling 
him all the circumstances. He will, if you 
have in good faith searched for a place, 
undoubtedly grant a stay for some length 
of time, probably a week or a month, and 
will tell you to come back then and will 
also tell you where to pay your rent mean- 
while. On that adjourned date the judge 
may continue the "stay" for a longer 



period and will probably do so if you can 
convince him of your continued inability 
to find a place. Of course, eventually the 
judge must order you out, but he need 
not do so for a year unless he sees fit. 

You can readily see that both of these 
provisions are very greatly in favor of the 
tenant as against the landlord. They are 
emergency legislation brought about by 
the present unusual shortage of dwelling 

houses in cities and are to remain in 
effect only until November 1, lO^^. Since 
these laws are for the protection of the 
tenant against the profiteering landlord, 
they should not be abused by the tenant. 
He should avail himself of their protec- 
tion to the full extent, but should not try 
to use them as an excuse to save himself 
the trouble of looking for a new place 
when his landlord for a good reason has 
given him due notice to move. 


WHAT'S that.= Too late to start a 
garden? Don't fool yourself. When 
you're talking gardens don't go by the 
calendar, but by the season. Didn't we 
have our first real warm day just a 
couple of weeks ago.'* 

Some things can safely be planted in 
your garden at almost any time until 
after midsummer. Lettuce, turnips, peas, 
beets and beans can usually be depended 
upon to mature in from six to nine weeks. 
Corn requires from eleven to thirteen 
weeks and potatoes a little longer than 

Here are some of the fall vegetables that 
should be planted during July or the 
early part of August in order to mature 
before frost comes: 

Beets Kohl Rabi 

Cucumbers (for pickles) Peas 

Endive Radishes (winter varieties) 

Kale Turnips 

Another frequent pitfall for the amateur 
gardener is disregard of the particular kind 
of soil he happens to have. The official 
soil tests for the Rochester section show 
that the land hereabouts is mostly clay. 
Many people fail in gardening becaiLse 
they do not know what kind of seed will 
flourish best in a clay soil. There are 
certain rules to follow in working a clay 
soil — particularly if it is a new garden — 
which will help materially: 

1. Be careful not to work the soil when 
it is too wet. Wait until it is dry enough 
to crumble between the fingers. 

^2. If well rotted stable manure is 
available, plow in or spade in a good 
dressing of it; or turn under a layer of 
old leaves or almost any kind of vegeta- 
tion that you can get. 

3. After the garden is plowed or spaded, 
and before it is harrowed or raked, spread 
lime evenly over the surface. If it is lime 
carbonate, spread it on to a thickness of 
at least half an inch. Then work the lime 
thoroughly into the soil. 

4. After the lime is thoroughly raked 
in, spread on a light dressing of commer- 
cial fertilizer and rake it in. Or, if pre- 
ferred, work in a little commercial ferti- 
lizer in the bottom of each drill or furrow 
just before sowing the seed. 

5. Select these crops for such soils: 
Lettuce, Swiss chard, sweet corn, beans, 
tomatoes. The root crops are not likely 
to do well until the garden has been 
worked over a season or more and a large 
amount of humus has been thoroughly 
worked into it. 

The home gardener has every incentive 
to put real effort into his job this year. 
The Rochester Industrial Exposition will, 
of course, have its usual garden contests 
and offer prizes for the best exhibits. The 
real vital reason for having a garden is, 
however, to protect yourself against the 
probable shortage of foodstuffs next fall 
and winter. It looks once more as if the 
fellow **who would be well fed must feed

APPLICATIONS for loans from the 
funds of the Kodak Employees Asso- 
ciation (Incorporated) have been coming 
in regularly ever since the appearance of 
the first announcement. The terms of 
the plan were outlined in the June number 
of The Kodak Magazine, and already 
about a dozen loans have been made. 

It has been very gratifying to the Asso- 
ciation to find how many employees have 
been able to meet the requirements of the 
first clause, which stipulates that the 
employee must be prepared to pay at 
least ten per cent, of the purchase price 
of the property. The situation speaks 
well for the thriftiness of Kodak workers. 

Some questions have been asked con- 
cerning the second rule — that the Associa- 
tion will not loan more than thirty per 
cent, of the amount of the first mortgage. 
There were two important reasons for 
the adoption of this rule: (1) to make the 
investment entirely safe; (2) to make the 
available money for loans go as far as 
possible. The Association, as custodian 
of funds belonging to all employees, feels 
that it must use particular care to safe- 
guard these funds and that as many em- 
ployees as possible should be helped to 
purchase homes. 

Several applications have been received 
for loans for other purposes than the pur- 
chase of homes. These purposes have 
been entirely worthy, such as making re- 
pairs or adding improvements to homes 
already purchased. The Association has, 
however, felt that inasmuch as only a 
limited amount of money is available for 
making loans, and since the housing 
shortage in the city makes it more than 
ever desirable for people to own their own 
homes, this particular object should, for 
the present at least, be given the 

The Legal Department suggests that 
inasmuch as it is never certain that a loan 
will be granted until the property has 
been examined and the Association or its 
Executive Committee formally passes 
upon the loan, no employee should sign 
a contract or an ofl^er for the purchase of 
property relying upon getting a loan from 
the Association without protecting him- 
self by having the contract or offer ex- 
pressly provide that it is only binding 
upon him in case he secures a loan from 
the Association in an amount stated. If 
this precaution is not taken the employee 
is very likely to lose the amount paid 
upon signing the contract or offer.

Law is the following : 

"An employee injured while at 
work must notify his employer that 
he has been injured and ask for medi- 
cal care, which the employer is 
obliged to furnish for a period of 
sixty days." 

So, in case of an accident, you should 
always notify the Medical Department at 
your plant, or call one of the company's 
doctors. Of course, if you prefer to call 
your own family physician, you are not 
compelled to accept the services of the 
company's medical staff, but the Com- 
pany tvill only be responsible when mem- 
bers of its own medical staff are called. 

Here's the staff, and how to get them :

FRED BREH:\r over at the Camera 
Works has a happy way of "getting 
the gang with him." 

It just so happens that Fred knows a 
whole lot about photograpliy and can 
prove it with some of the finest landscapes 
you ever feasted your eye upon. Just 
how it came about, we don't exactly 
know; maybe some one of the fellows 
remarked: "Gee! I wish I could make 
pictures like those!" anyhow Fred con- 
ceived the idea of starting in the Camera 
Works what was called the "Photographic 
Lecture Course" (because that sounded 
a bit too formal the name has since been 
changed to "The Story -Telling Class"). 

Fred got his first lot of pupils together 
and told them that the mere fact that 
they worked in the Camera Works didn't 
mean that they knew all about photog- 
raphy, and that they would have to begin 
at the beginning — which, strange (?) to 
say, was good news to quite a few members 
of the class. As a starter he explained the 
first principles of a camera, and how by 
means of a simple, light-tight box, and with 
just a pinhole (or more properly speaking, 
a needle-hole) in place of the lens, good 
photographs could be taken; and this fact 
may likewise be news to some of the rest 
of you. 

Full directions for constructing a 
camera of this type out of cardboard were 
given, and the pupils were told to make a 
camera, load it and take a picture with it. 

If you don't believe that good pictures 
can be made with only a pinhole, just 
cast your eyes over the pictures on page 
'i which were the prize winners in this 
contest. The contestants were divided 
into three classes: Class A — Considerable 
experience. Class B — Some experience. 

Class C — ^Xo experience. The judges 
made the awards as follows : 

Cl.\ss a 

1st W. Wincup (1) 

^2nd F. O'Brien (2) 

3rd H. Baldwin (3) 

Class B 

1st D. Mather (4) 

2nd J. Goodbodv (5) 

3rd L. Clark (7) 

Honorable Mention H. Thorpe (6) 

Class C 

1st Miss E. Gamrod (8) 

2nd A. Love (9) 

3rd W. Riddell (10) 

Honorable Mention E. White (11) 

Mr. Robertson sent the following letter 
to the prize winners: 

I have examined the pinhole pictures in the 
photographic test in the class which Mr. Brehra is 
now conducting in photography, and take this 
opportunity to congratulate you on the very at- 
tractive and successful work that you and other 
members of the class have accomplished. 

This course is interesting and educational and 
will doubtless prove beneficial both to the Eastman 
Kodak Company and the employees who have 
devoted their time to it. It is this spirit of co- 
operation that helps build up a co-operative and 
progressive organization. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) J. A. Robertson. 

The pupils of this class have been enjoy- 
ing themselves hugely, and incidentally 
learning a lot about picture making. At 
the present time 115 pupils are enrolled. 
The class meets every alternate Wednes- 
day in the Men's Dining Room, Camera 
Works, the instruction lasting from 5:15 
to 6:00 o'clock. All employees who are 
in a supervisory capacity are eligible to 
enroll, and any inquiry relative to the 
subject should be addressed to "Story 
Telling," Camera Works, Industrial Rela- 
tions Department.

A WELCOME bit of news for the 
patrons and promoters of Kodak 
athletic and social doings is the recent 
announcement that the company will go 
fifty-fifty with the employees in the 
financial support of such enterprises. The 
company has approved an appropriation 
for the year 1920 to cover a part of the 
expense of all wholesome athletic, recrea- 
tional and social activities for employees. 
The plan is as follows: 

"The company will allot to each of 
its Rochester plants an amount equal 
to the sum raised by the employees 
of each plant — with the understand- 
ing that the company's contribution 
will not in any case exceed $1.00 per 
year for each employee, based on the 
average number of employees for the 

This announcement has given a big 

boost to the interest in such of the plants 
as already have an Athletic Association 
or Recreation Club, and has stimulated 
the forming of such an organization in the 
others. It is good luck to Kodak athletes 
for, with prices on equipment soaring as 
they are, it's been a real problem to 
finance such activities as the Baseball 
League, which has an expense budget 
running into four figures. This policy 
shows, too, that the company is heartily 
in sympathy with our recreational activi- 
ties. It should eliminate the necessity 
for some of the money-raising schemes 
which have heretofore been necessary. 

The new program also makes a big 
appeal in the "Value Received" column. 
It's a chance to get double value on your 
money — two dollars entertainment for 
every dollar paid in. Sounds pretty good, 
doesn't it?

Building 35 


W. T. Barrett, of Building No. 35, 
Kodak Park, has designed a safety ladder 
with the mat attached, thereby appar- 
ently solving a problem which has been a 
source of worry for some time. On several 
occasions the rule in effect at Kodak 
Park, that all employees place a mat 
under ladders when using same, has been 
violated and several accidents have 
occurred when the ladders have slipped. 

Mr. Barrett conceived the idea of 
attaching the mat to the ladder with a 
ball-and-socket device, which eliminates 
the chance of accident from this cause. 

Tests made by the General Safety 
Committee Avith the ladder placed at 
different angles up to a])out 45 degrees 
show it to be very ])ra('tical. 

Mr. Barrett submitted his idea in the 
form of a suggestion, which has been 
adopted, and on Avhich he will receive a 
substantial award. 


Do you recall when the first Liberty 
Loan came along and you felt that you 
just had to subscribe and help get Heinie 
on the run? Just didn't see how you 
were going to get along with that nick in 
your pay envelope every week, but you 
did — and say, wasn't it that "grand and 
glorious feeling" when you found that 
you actually had a bond or two paid for. 

Loans two, three, four and five: you 
groaned and shook your head and said it 
just couldn't be done, with old H. C. L. 
right at your heels, but somehow you 
managed it, and honestly now, you didn't 
miss the money, did you? You found that 
it was easy to save; far easier than you 
imagined; and you are mighty glad to 
have those bonds working for you now" — 
to say nothing of the feeling of satis- 
faction in having done your duty. 

Now that you have found out that it 
is easy to save money, are you going to 
forget this highly profitable lesson? A 
good many of the employees desire to 
continue this method of saving; a word to 
the cashier in your plant and he will 
deduct any amount you specify from your 
weekly wage and deposit it in the Roches- 
ter Savings Bank to your credit. 

Start your savings account this week

The Rochester Business Library is 
located on the first floor of the Municipal 
Building, Xo. 13 South Pltzhugh Street. 
At present it contains some three thou- 
sand volumes, including encyclopedias, 
dictionaries in English and foreign lan- 
guages, almanacs, catalogs, and business 
literature; the list includes books for 
em])loyment and office managers, safety 
and industrial engineers, advertising men, 
foremen and hovisekcepers. 

If you cannot visit the library in person, 
information will be cheerfully given over

DURING the winter months we don't 
need to worry very much about fire, 
at least about setting fire to anything 
with the lights. The electric bulb seems 
to be pretty safe. But, if you spend some 
time in the summer, living in a cottage 
or tent at the lakeside, with gas or kero- 
sene for lights, then you have more 
reason to be careful. 

For kerosene lamps have been known 
to explode. Still, with a clean lamp, and 
a properly trimmed wick, the fire risk is 
very slight. The chief causes of accidents 
with oil lamps seem to be (1) lack of 
cleanliness; ('2) carelessness, such as keep- 
ing the lamps in warm places and allow- 
ing the oil to run low, and (3) poor choice 
of burners. 

Here are a few suggestions that will 
help to eliminate the danger in using 
such lamps: 

(1) Do not buy or use burners that are 
hard to clean. 

(2) Learn the construction of the 

(3) Keep the burner particularly clean 
in places where oil or char might 

(4) Keep the wicks well trimmed, and 
never let the oil get low. 

(5) Do not blow down the chimney to 
put the light out. Turn the wick low, 
and blow across the top. 

(6) If you must leave a lighted lamp 
unattended, always use a fresh lamp, 
clean througliout, properly trimmed and 

(7) Mount bracket lamps 07ily where 
they cannot be swung under shelves or 

(8) Keep the wick turned down just 
below the top of the tube while unlighted. 

If your place is equipped with gas, you 
should be on the watch for faulty jets. 
There is no economy in using the cheap 
open-flame burner or the low-quality 
mantle lamp. These may prove more 
expensive in the long run. You can get 
the usual type of high-grade inverted 
mantle lamp, or the mantle lamp with 
stack, either of which will prove 

If you use an open-flame burner, be 
sure tlie tip is so fastened that it cannot 
be broken or lost. Burners with broken 
or loose tips are not only expensive, but 
extremely dangerous, because the tip may 
blow off and allow the gas to burn with a 
long flame which may reach some inflam- 
mable article ordinarilv out of reach. 


A mighty small thing is a rubber band 
and one which serves a very useful pur- 
pose in its place. Out of place, however, 
it can become a dangerous t)rouble-maker. 

A very serious accident was tlie recent 
result of one of these same little rubber 
bands carelessly dropped at the top of a 
flight of stairs. The victim of the acci- 
dent paid a heavy toll in suffering for the V . . -, , 
carelessness of one of his fellow workers.

The big event of the year, the Hawk-Eye Picnic, 
is to be held this year at Manitou Beach on Satur- 
day, August 14th. The grounds were chosen by 
popular vote and the count showed that a large 
majority was in favor of Manitou. This is one 
event that annually goes over with a bang, and 
judging from preliminary arrangements, this year 
is to be no exception. It is to be a day crammed 
full of sports and eats, of drinks and games, of 
swims and dances and all the other things which 
go to make up a regular day. 

F. H. Von Deben is Chairman of the general 
committee, with George Brennan, Howard Werner, 
John Vass and Chris. Haus as his committee. Of 
this group George Brennan will be Chairman of the 
special committee on food, and John Vass on 
athletics. Ray Wall is Chairman of the committee 
on publicity with Wilbur Woodams in charge of 

There is to be no charge for the picnic itself- 
The only expense to the picnickers will be the car 
fare and food, which will be arranged at the lowest 
possible cost. It is hoped that all Hawk-Eytes 
will not only attend, but that they will invite their 
friends and relatives. 


Track athletics have taken root at Hawk-Eye 
and from present indications Coach Johnny Vass is 
going to turn out a good team for both the field and 
track events. Vass himself is well known locally as 
a middle and long distance runner, having carried 
away the City Championship in his favorite events 
on several occasions. Captain Jack Rearson and 
Manager John Authaler are top notch sprinters. 
Rearson can also be counted to add points in the 
broad jump and hurdles. Leonard Reynolds of the 
Centering Department, Walter Silge, Sidney 
Leggatt and Harold Groh of the Anastigmat Lens 
Department, are promising candidates for the team, 
and may be expected to make the veterans show 
more than usual to hold their places. 

Practices are held regularh' under the direction 
of Coach Vass at. Number 7 School on Wednesday 
and Friday evenings. No selections of a permanent 
nature have been made as yet, and all wlio are 
interested are invited to enter the trials. 

The Mounting Department has one dyed-in-the- 
wool baseball fan. Elizabeth Meerdink never misses 
a game on Saturday afternoon.

Secretary Frank M. Hanse of the Hawk-Eye 
Garden Club reports continued growth and interest 
in the organization. One hundred and eighty-five 
employees are busj' cultivating the gardens which 
are going to knock down the totals on future 
grocery bills. These same gardens will require a 
lot of work and care between now and harvest time, 
but from present market indications the vegetables 
will be worth their weight in gold. It is constant 
attention from now on that counts. The hoe and 
cultivator pay for themselves if worn out in use. 

F. H. Von Deben, President of the Club, is 
endeavoring to determine whether or not the senti- 
ment among the gardeners favors an exhibition of their 
wares at the end of the season. The (juestion is to 
be left to the wishes of the members of the Club and 
is entirely secondary to the main object of the 
organization, which is to grow for food. 


We sure are growing. A part of Adam Long's 
Machine Shop at the corner of Avenue E and St. 
Paul Street has been leased and tlie Glass Milling 
Department is being moved over to allow for the 
necessary expansion in the Glass Moulding Depart- 
ment. The glass cutters and millers may well be 
proud of their new quarters, though they must feel 
somewhat lonesome and exclusive over there by 

The official records of the Eastman Kodak Base- 
ball League for the first three games of the season 
show pretty plainly why Hawk-Eye is in line for 
the pennant. The boys have delivered more hits 
in the three games than any other team in the 
league — twenty-eight, to be exact. Their team bat- 
ting average is .'297, and their fielding average .918. 
Boehm, with .500; Peterson, witli .400; Felerski, 
with .375; Kozlowski, with .3.S3, and Wiedeman 
and Levine. with .307 each, are leading the hitters. 
In the field, Wiedeman, Levine, Marcille, Boehm 
and Kozlowski have perfect records. 


Many new faces appeared in the Hawk-Eye line- 
up as it took the field against the Premo Works on 
June 5th. We welcome the new players to the 
team, hoping they will put forward their best 
efi'orts to develop the team work which will result 
in the winning of the Kodak League pennant. 

Despite the cold weather, \a\ Kozlowski pitched a 
beautiful game for Hawk-Eye. Val had "every- 
thing," as the box score shows, and he pleased the 
fans when he retired the side in one. two, three 
order in the second inning. Just two hits were pro- 
cured off his delivery and with the 1009c backing he 
received he was never in danger. 

Allan Peterson, Kozlowskis receiving department, 
displayed his wares for the first time and made a 
good impression. We expect to see this boy turn 
them all back when they attempt to pilfer the bases. 

Albert Marcille at first played a fine game, shar- 
ing honors with Kozlowski, for, while "Val" was 
holding the Premos, "Douber" was driving in the 
runs for Hawk-Eye. Keep puffing, "Douber," old 
boy, and we'll get there. 

Oh I Man! did you see Leo Felerski, our last year's 
backstop, hold down second base? His playing was 
all that could be asked, and he bids fair to be the 
best second baseman in the Kodak League. To beat 
Leo's wonderful throwing arm, one has to burn the 
path from the plate to first in nothing flat, and the 
boys have to back up to get the ball when he meets 
it, a fact proved when he was robbed of two hits. 
Now fans, if you are not interested in pitchers' bat- 
tles, you should come out to see Felerski play 
second base. 

Ingleby at short and Prentice at third were not 
allowed to show the goods, as nothing came their 
way, but both counted in as hit producers. We 
know Inglebys ability, but Me should have liked 
a line on Prentice. This much can be said for the 
boy, howe\'er, if he ever gets a glove you can bet 
he will stop the hot ones at third. 

Our secondary defense composed of George 
Wiedeman, Benny Levine and Martin Boelmi did 
not have much of a chance to shine in the gardens, 
but these boys can safely be counted on to do their 
share in holding Hawk-Eye out in front. 


"And the end is that the workman shall live to 
enjoy the fruit of his labor; that his mother shall 
have the comfort of his arm in her age; that his 
wife shall not be untimely a widow; that his children 
shall have a father, and that cripples and hopeless 
wrecks who were once strong men shall not longer 
be a by-product of industry."

The eleven-year-old son of Alois Groell of the 
Anastigmat Lens Department was painfully injured 
while spending a day at Sea Breeze recently. He 
was playing on the bridge over the outlet when an 
automobile backed into him, crushing him against 
the rail. We sincerely hope the little fellow will 
make a speedy recovery. 

Andrew Wingfein, Tony Andreassi and Walter 
Silge of the Anastigmat Lens Department have 
"raised their heads above the crowd." Each of 
them stands out of the department "like a sore 
thumb." They are marked men. They have had 
their heads clipped. 

The Pitch Buttoning Department has lost two 
of its girls. Mrs. Delia Robinson has been trans- 
ferred to Kodak Park and Marie Cunningham to 
the Centering Department. The best wishes of all 
the girls go with them to their new work. 

Ruth Pierce and Grace Walker have been trans- 
ferred from the Inspecting Department to the 
Filter Department. The filter makers want to 
impress on the newcomers the fact that they have 
joined a happy family. 

Frank Del ^lonaco, more familiarly known as 
■"," in the Anastigmat Lens Department, 
recently purchased a home and has been furnishing 
amusement for the other men in the department 
ever since. From the number of repairs Frank has 
been required to make on tiie house it would seem 
that he bought a few good walls and that's all.

Isn't it surprising how accidents can happen? 
I wonder if we have got so accustomed to seeing 
Safety signs and reading Safety articles that we 
have l)econie calloused. 

It's a great thing to know that the factory 
maintains a Safety Inspector, Safety Committees, 
a Press Inspector, Safety (iuards, and all manner 
of devices, and some of us expect all these things — 
perhaps rightly — and do not trouble much about 
Safety ideas and precautions. In other words, we 
let "Dick do it." It's his job and we have faith 
in the Company's idea of Safety precautions. 


The Company does maintain up-to-date safety 

Dick does do it. 


Do you know there were nine people injured last 

All friends of yours, and mine, and everyone. 

Here they are: 

Florence Goodwin: hers was an exceptional 

Elmer Johnson: turned to look at anotlier 
workman: result, two fingers amputated. 

AVilliam Tucker; cleaning bottom of punch with 
his finger and inadvertently tripped the press; 
result, two fingers amputated. 

Nick Rick; tried to lift too heavy a box; result, 
strained back. 

David O'Conner; heavy scale overbalanced; 
result, crushed foot. 

Marion Thompson; tripped over a piece of pipe, 
fell, hurt her leg. 

Nicholas Graus; tripped press with hand slightly 
around guard; result, one finger amputated. 

Mabel Ginegaw: pulled out tray which fell; 
result, possible amputation of toe. 

Peter Cowie; handling heavy boxes; result, 
strained back. 

Of course everyone is sorry for these people, and 
we sincerely trust they are recovering, but, if a 
little more forethought had been used the majority 
of these accidents would not have happened. 

Nobody likes to have accidents. 

Most of them are unnecessary evils. 

Let's avoid them by being careful.

The obvious fact that "nothing succeeds like 
success" is fully demonstrated in the case of Richard 
Jennings, our popular Safety Inspector. Some of 
us "old uns," harking back to Charlie Thompson's 
days, can well remember Dick as an all-around 
assistant during fire drill tests and safety committee 
work, with a regular job in the Kodak Assembling 
Department. The benefits of the Safety Move- 
ment have long passed the experimental stage, 
and, keeping pace with its growth, the Management 
appointed Dick to devote all his time to making 
the factory safe for the employees, and to supervise 
its physical condition in the matter of cleanliness and 
pleasant surroundings. 

The field of Safety Work has grown so rapidly 
within the last three years ihat even the Committee 
work is fast becoming a specialized job. An 
excellent method of procedure along safety lines 
has been in force in the Camera Works for a long 
time, in choosing committees from the employees 
for each one of the levels. This year, however, 
the Management has appointed the fifteen successful 
students from the Camera Works who graduated 
in the Safety Supervisor's Class in the local Safety 

There were US graduates from Rochester, 
representing 19 manufacturing plants, and, in order

Local No. 9. was instituted, and by-laws drawn up 
and officers elected for the ensuing year. 

The Camera Works feel proud to state that 
Richard Jennings was almost unanimously elected 
as President, and he declared his intention of 
lending his best efforts to further the interests of 
Safetv and the Association.

A new member has been elected on the Executive 
Committee, to take the place of Lucy Diesel, who is 
now listed as Supervisor in the Detail and Estimate 
Department. The Chairman called a meeting of 
all representatives for the purpose of election 
on May 26th, and Edith Partridge and Mrs. 
Mabel Kane were nominated as candidates. The 
voting was very close, results showing 46 to 44 in 
favor of Mabel. 


Mrs. Kane is becoming prominent in employees' 
organizations, having been elected as a Represen- 
tative, and then as a member of the Executive 
Committee, all within four weeks. The Recreation 
Club elected her as their Auditor, and this is why 
we are printing Mrs. Kane's picture. 

Meet her — it's worth while! 



Gardeners — Yet another Competition! 

The annual inspection will take place this month. 
Let us see what you are doing, and intend to do. 
Send in your name, registration number and the 
exact location of your garden or lot, as early as 
possible. Don't wait for the final acceptance date, 
July 17th. Do it now, and spend the rest of the 
time using your hoe and cultivator. 

Do not refrain from entering this competition 
because your garden is not for "show purposes." 
The Committee know that you are raising vegetables 
for your own use and will judge accordingly. This 
year the officers of the association have tried to 
cover all the different kinds of gardens and lots, and 
your entry will be graded into one of four classes: 

1. A backyard garden worked by one person. 
'i. A backyard garden worked by man and wife. 

3. A vacant lot worked by one person only. 

4. A vacant lot worked by two or more men. 

Points will be awarded as follows : 

Freedom from bugs and insects 25 

Thorough cultivation 20 

Maximum production 20 

Spacing for proper growth 15 

General neatness and layout 15 

Assortment (minimum of 6) 5 

Allowance for virgin soil — maximum of 5 
Natural difficulties — maximum of 5 

The Committee will send each person entering this 
competition the exact number of points awarded, 
and will state how they arrived at their conclu- 
sions. We are trying to make this an educational 
feature and urge you to enter your garden or lot 
even if it's only "for the good of the order." 

Entry forms will be sent to you through the 
factory mail within a few days. Fill them in and 
return them to the Secretary, Industrial Relations 

The Shutter Room is famed for its baseball 
fiends. The latest addition to the realm of sports 
is the "Ought" Team, managed by Clarence 
Van Duser. He has secured Joe Meyers and Tom 
Lawler as pitchers, and declares he has an A-1 
team. Any department ha\'ing a team that looks 
good should apply to \'an for a challenge game.

There appears to be a surplus of baseball players 
in the Camera Works, for not only can we boast 
about the Camera Works team, but a new one has 
sprung into existence and is bringing forth good 
material. Among three thousand employees, the 
Camera Works should be able to support and 
maintain a second baseball team, especially as 
arrangements will be made so that the games of 
the two teams will not clash and so distract from 
the interest in one or the other. Of course, the 
Pathfinders are not in the regular Kodak league, 
but, nevertheless, we should follow them with 
interest, as being part of the activities of the 
Recreation Club. 

The team has secured the diamond at West High 
Athletic Field on Tuesday nights, the games 
starting at 6:30 P. M. The Manager has signed 
up, among others, such familiar pitchers as Ray 
Miles and Matt Kuhn, and for catchers has secured 
Geo. Millspaugh and Chas. Irwin. 

John Walsh, popularly known as Jack, will be 
recognized as one of the official umpires, retained 
by the Kodak league, and his election to the post 
of Manager for the Pathfinders was unanimous. 

There are three departments in the factory which 
operate a "Friendly Club," which is so successful 
that we commend the idea for extension. The 
Kodak Assembling, Lens, and Complete Inspection 
Departments have elected a committee from the 
operators to handle a fund for sick employees. 
The departments subscribe ten cents per person, 
and any operator who is sick receives a visit from 
the committee together with a basket of fruit. 
The treasury is never allowed to be empty, and tlie 
departments in question have issued a ruling 
extending the sending of flowers for deatlis in tlie 

Such institutions as tliese make for ideal factory 
conditions, and congratulations are due to tlie three 
departments on their conceiition <>f working irith 
each other. 

Al Youngren, Photostat, has beaten the renting 
game in buying a house, and we are told it's a 


One of the successes of the Camera Works 
Recreation Club is the formation of a Soccer 
Football team, under the captaincy of James 
Gordon. This team is representing the Camera 
Works in the Rochester and District League, and 
for the Northwestern New York Competition Cup. 

Any man who can play football will be very 
welcome to try out with the team. Make appli- 
cation to the President, J. W. Heaphy. 

The team solicits the support of Camera Works 
fans. Bulletin boards tell the when and where. 

Joseph Burns is acting as Vice-President, Wm. 
Mostyn as Secretary, and Frank Gordon as Treas- 
urer and Manager.

Graduate Sitrse 
In Charge of Medical Dispensary 

The Medical Dispensary is now open. Miss 
Westlake is in charge, and is fully qualified to take 
care of any cases which may require her services. 

The dispensary is equipped with modern appli- 
ances for first aid work, and the need of such a 
department has been evident in the Camera 
Works for some time, owing to the increasing 
number of men and women on the payroll. The 
Medical Department, located in the Main Office, 
takes care of physical examinations and surgical 
cases, but all first aid cases connected with Camera 
Works employees are treated in the dispensary, 
which is situated on the fourth level. Building 1. 

Miss Westlake is a Graduate Xurse from the 
Homeopathic Hospital, and is very proud of her 
new charge. 

Mart Franey, who has seventeen years of faithful 
service to his credit, met with a distressing accident 
a few weeks ago, but has sufficiently recovered to 
allow him to be on the job again. Mart has an 
enviable record of a perfect attendance for 1916- 
1917, and the Brownie Covering Department 
welcomes him back. 


As announced by posters, a Tennis Tournament 
is being played by Camera Works employees 
under the auspices of the Recreation Club, and 
managed by Harold Marson. The Club was 
fortunate enough to secure permission from the 
city to use the two courts in Brown Square Park, 
in consideration of putting them in order. We 
can now boast of the finest tennis courts used by 
industrial teams. 

The courts are situated in the northwest corner 
of the park, near Saratoga and Jay. Camera 
Works employees are invited to use the courts 
during the noon hour. 


The Tournament will be played each evening 
from 7 to 8:30. except Saturdays and Sundays, 
when the matches will be staged from 2:30 to 5:30. 

Roy Handy, Foreman of the No. Shutter 
Department, has had a long illness dating back to 
January. A bad attack of influenza started the 
trouble, necessitating a serious operation. Roy 
is a popular man in the Camera Works, and we 
welcome him back. 

Harry Goddard must have been a busy man 
when this "snap" was taken. We had no idea 
that Harry was such a disciple of the Roose- 
veltian theory, and, upon investigation, we 
discovered he is not. An.^'way, Goddard is here 
demonstrating his fatherly instincts, and as an 
example of cute children this picture should be 
awarded a prize. Harry is indebted to "Bill" 
Zimmer, "Hal" Baldwin, Harry Brown and Geo. 
Frizzelle for the loan of the subjects. 




Frank Seiler, foreman in the tinshop, is drifting 
away from his bee farm and is going back into the 
chicken business. We sincerely trust that Frank 
didn't get stung! 

Joe Ives, of Department Xo. 43. is getting famous 
for his suggestions, his latest edition being that the 
calendar should be revised, giving June i8 days 
instead of February in order to facilitate an earlier

Our sympathy is extended to the wife and 
relatives of the late Fred Gladwin, who died from 
pleurisy last month. Mr. Gladwin worked in the 
Tool Department for eight years, and made many 
friends in the Camera Works. 

Emma Tirrell is to be married on July 3rd. 
Emma has been a very popular girl in the Shutter 
room for eight years. 

Sol Paley, erstwhile Editor of the Camera Works 
Bulletin, has sent an announcement of his marriage 
to several old friends, who join in congratulations. 

Dan Doran, Kodak Assembling Department, 
is still suffering from the effects of pneumonia, 
contracted last January. A month's rest in the 
country has helped him to recover, and we assure 
Dan that there is a welcome awaiting him on his 

The Tool Department has had its share of 
sickness, one case being particularly bad, that of 
Fay Barber. Fay is well on the road to good 
health, however, and will soon be among his shop- 

Ma.K Lestin, Screw Machine Department, has 
completely recovered from an operation for appen- 
dicitis. Max says there isn't so much of him now, 
but what there is is good.

states, causes the shiners to enter, without hesita- 
tion, a pickerel's mouth, should it yawn! 

A few of the girls from the Bellows Department 
took a trip across to Canada on Decoration Day 
and from the look of the picture below the trip was 
a pretty good one. You will readily distinguish the

About one hundred and fifty members of the 
Kodak Park Main Office attended the annual picnic- 
held on Saturday, ^lay !2'2nd, at East Maplewood. 

The opening number on the sports program was a 
baseball game between two girls" teams, captained 
by Marion Burns and Marguerite Ellis, resulting in 
a victory for Marion's team. This was followed by 
a glorious defeat for the "Married Men" at the 
hands of Jack Grinnan's '"Youngsters." The 
married men had a perfectly good alibi for losing — 
Ed. Hogestyn, who pitched against them. Follow- 
ing are the winners of the other events: 100-yd. 
dash for men. Don. McMaster; three-legged race 
for men, P. Walley and F. Wood; .50-yd. dash for 
girls, Anna Wittman; backward race for girls, 
Marion Burns; ball throwing contest for girls, 
Marion Burns; ball throwing contest for men, Ed. 
Hogestyn. Table prizes won by Marie Hendricks, 
Ed. Goodridge, and Milton Ernisse. 

An excellent dinner was served at G:30, for which 
everyone was in good condition. Between courses 
entertainment was furnished by Jack Free, who 
introduced several new and witty numbers. Jack 
is becoming more and more popular as time goes 
on, and no affair is considered complete without 
some contribution from this versatile young artist. 


Since merging with the former "Kodak Post," 
the "Frank L. 'Ace' Guillod Post" has rapidly 
forged to the front, as one of the largest, most 
prominent and progressive Posts in Monroe County. 
Hiokatoo Hall, I'-ZS Reynolds Arcade, has been 
secured for headquarters, and regular meetings 
will be held there the second Friday of each month. 
Every ex-service man is invited to be present at 
the meetings. Those who do not as yet belong 
to the Legion are particularly urged to attend. 

On Memorial Day over a hundred members of 
the Post were in uniform for the parade, and they 
made a fine impression under the capable guidance 
of P. H. Case and "Jerry" Welles. 

At the last meeting two new vice-presidents 
were elected: C. A. Kneer, Kodak Park, and H. 
Irwin, Main Office; and P. H. Case and H. Mumby, 
Kodak Park; P. J. Nolan, Camera Works, and H. 
Irwin, Main Office, were elected to the Coimty 

There are still a few ex-service men in the various 
plants who have not yet joined the Legion. Most 
of these men are merely putting it off for a time, 
but there are still a few who fail to grasp the essential 
points of the Legion's aims, that it is an organization 
for ex-service men, run by ex-service men for the 
ex-service men, and that it is the greatest poten- 
tiality for good, for the promotion of real live 
Americanism this country has ever had. 

It is every ex-service man"s privilege; even more, 
it is his duty to join the Legion, and if he has no 
other choice of Posts, sign up with "Guillod Post," 
and help to put this Post on a real Kodak basis, first 
and foremost in the country. Let's go! 

at the Office Picnic 


The Kodak Park Fur and Feather Club is 
progressing very nicely, and it is at present making 
a campaign, the object being to interest the 
employees who are not at present members of the 
association to join them. 

There is a proposition under consideration at 
tlie present time to buy feed in carload lots for the 
members of the Club, which should result in consid- 
erable saving for the members. 

The new bulletin boards have been placed in the 
entrance of the Dining Hall in Building No. '28 
and in the archway. Building No. 5. These l^oards 
are to be used by the members to advertise stock, 
which they may have for sale or exchange, and for 
other news relative to the Association. 




On Monday, May 17th. a membership campaign 
was launched by the Kodak Park Athletic 
Association which resulted in the addition of over 
1,300 new names to the membership list. The 
Plant was divided into seven sections, one of which 
was assigned to each of the following captains: 
Frank Henchen, Plate; Albert Armstrong, Chemical; 
Jack Schaeffer, Branch Shipping; William Zimmerli, 
Velox: William Connors, Film; "Bob" Reid, 
Electrical; and Dave Babcock, Emulsion Coating. 
The team led by Frank Henchen secured the 
greatest number of applications, while Armstrong's 
team was second. Prizes were awarded for the best 
individual work as follows: First prize, men, won 
by A. Armstrong, 9.5 new members; second prize, 
men, Emmett Lott, Emulsion Coating, 94 new 
members. First prize, girls, won by Susan Jeffreys, 
Department No. 50, who also secured 9.5 new names, 
and the second prize, girls, won by Carrie Smith, 
Film Department. The Association now has over 
5,100 members. An expression of appreciation is 
extended to the members of the different teams for 
their excellent work during the campaign. 


Susan Jeffreys of Department No. 50 won the 
first prize for the girl doing the best individual work 
in the recent membership drive held by the K. P. 
A. A. She secured a total number of 95 new 
members for the Association. Susan has also been 
very active in the sale of Thrift Stamps and diil mucli 
to help her department obtain its excellent standing 
in the Community Chest Campaign. 


Elwood Loveridge of I)ei)artinent Xo. 50 severed 
his connections with Kodak Park on Saturday,

concern, where he is to l)e in charge of the sales 

Having been with us since June. 1915, all of which 
time was s[)ent in Department No. 50, it is with 
regret that we received news of his decision to enter 
other fields. He leaves with our l)est wishes for 
much success in this new 


June 10, 1920. 

To the Executive Committee, to the General 
Committee, and to the workers I extend my thanks 
for the efficient and enthusiastic manner in which 
they worked for the Community Chest campaign 
at Kodak Park. But any expression of thanks on 
my part woukl be incomplete without saying how 
much I appreciate the hearty and generous response 
from the employees. By the splendid co-operation 
of all, we were able to make a fine showing. 

It has been decided to make the Executive 
Committee a permanent one for the of 
taking care of questions which may arise during 
the year. The Committee will meet the first Friday 
of each month at 3 P. M. It will be pleased to 
answer as far as possible any questions relative to 
the Community Chest and to entertain any sugges- 
tions which may be of benefit in future campaigns. 
The party may communicate in writing or appear 
before the Committee. 

The Committee will place before the Community 
Chest any complaint against any of the institutions 
aided by the Community Chest, provided that the 
complaint is in WTiting and is signed by the party 
making the complaint.

Chairman, Executive Committee. 


On Thursday, May 27th, Albert Johnson, one 
of the popular employees of the D. O. P. Packing 
Department, passed away after an illness which had 
kept him at home since October 17, 1919. Mr. 
Johnson had been employed at Kodak Park since 
June 10. 1912. He was very well known, well liked 
and will be greatly missed. To his relatives we 
extend our sympathy. 

Genevieve Noble left on Saturday, June 26th, to 
be married. On Friday evening, June -ith, Mary 
Brass of 16 Keehl Street gave a luncheon. On Sat- 
urday evening, June 5th, Ada McBride gave a 
theatre party at the Temple Theatre. On Satur- 
day afternoon and evening, June 19th. Marie 
Powers and Louise Delias gave a towel shower at 
the summer home of Miss Powers, Rustic Cottage, 
Manitou Beach. 

We understand that Dr. Reid, Paul Seel. Nelse 
Bruce and Jerry Lane are exhibiting rare form on 
the course this year. Safety first, Bruce; stick to 
the emergency brake. It would have been a sad 
thing if you had nuissed up that trolley car, even 
though von did lireak your rear axle. 

The engagement of M. Porter Walley. of the 
Payroll Department. Building No. 26. and Marvel 
Sherman of the Payroll Department. Building No. 
34, lias been announced. You've heard of "ce- 
menting ties." of course. Our heartiest congratu- 

It is with pleasure we announce that f'dward 
Ilenne.s.sey is once more back at work in Building 
No. .34 after four weeks in the hospital, where he 
underwent an operation. 




The end of the first lap of the Noon-Hour Lidoor 
Baseball League shows the Axnerican Legion team 
leading by a scant margin. Each year the interest 
in this popular sport has increased since its introduc- 
tion at Kodak Park, and 19'20 is by far the best 
we have ever had from every standpoint. The 
grounds are in excellent condition, having been 
filled in and rolled; a .score board has been installed, 
and the teams are stronger, and playing better ball. 
It seems to be inevital)le that some one team shall 
have all the hard luck of the League. This year 
this team seems to be the '"Crabs," who are at the 
tail end of the list. A few changes are being 
made, however, in hopes that the jinx can be 
sidetracked and a few more games may change the 
standing considerably.

The work of re-surfacing the tennis courts has 
been completed, and the K. P. A. A. now boasts of 
seven of the best courts to be found in this part of 
the country. 

As usual, the interest in this sport is very keen 
and a great number of the members are taking 
advantage of our excellent facilities. The increased 
demand has necessitated the making of a new 
ruling affecting the use of these courts. Singles 
are not allowed during the noon hour, in order to 
enable a greater number to play, and the time 
limit rule is also being enforced, which requires 
persons who take the courts at twelve o'clock to 
relinquish them at twelve-thirty o'clock to those 
who are waiting. As yet no one has been appointed 
to manage the men's tennis teams for this year, 
neither has a team been picked, due to the fact that 
the courts have only recently been in condition for 
playing. The plan of forming a tennis club is being 
considered, which should have many advantages 
over the past method of conducting tliis activity. 
Matches will be arranged with the other tennis 
teams in this vicinity as usual. 

Much interest is being shown by the girls in 

Three of our courts have been assigned for the 
exclusive use of the girl members of the Association, 
together with a section of the Club, which 
includes showers and locker room. 

X great many new players have taken up tennis 
this .sea.son, and are being coached by Marie Forbes, 
manager of the teams, assisted by James Jenkinson. 
At the present time a class of twelve is being taught 
the correct way to play the game. Monday and 
Tuesday are beginning nights. Anyone desiring 
to obtain instruction is invited to be present on 
either of these nights. 


A Twilight Baseball League has been organized 
among the girl meml>ers of the Association. Five 
teams have been formed with the following girls in 
charge: Carrie Smith, Film Department; C. Van 
De Malle, Box Department: Marion Burns, 
Buihhng No. 26; Hazel Decker. Building No. 40; 
and Julia Cushing, Building No. 48. 

The members of the teams have been faithfully 
practicing for several weeks under the direction of 
Coach Manhold. 

A schedule has been prepared, which calls for 
games to be played on Monflay. Wednesday and 
Friday evenings at 5:30 P. M. on the Athletic Field, 
the opening game being played on Mondav, June 

The players for the outdoor baseball team have 
practically all been picked. Games are being 
arranged with the ntlier Industrial Girls' Teams of 


On Wednesday, June 9, Helen and Tyna Pattison 
entertained the members of the Girls' Basketball 
team at the home of their mother, in honor of 
Florence Emrich, who on Tuesday, June loth, was 
married to John A. Nickel. Florence was presented 
with a set of silver spoons and a picture of the 
1919-1920 basketball team, of which she had been 
such a valuable member. Best wishes. 


As part of the opening day exercises of the 
Eastman Kodak Ba.seball League. Kodak Park 
defeated the Main Office team. The team looked 
fairly good in their first attempt, although they 
were weak in batting, a point which we are working 
hard to overcome, and it is expected that within 
another week or so, as a result of hard practice and 
a few changes in the line-up, our aggregation will 
look more like a finislied product. 

"Walt" Metcalf is at ])resent laid up with an 
injured hand, which makes a very bad hole in the 
infield, although it is expected that he will soon be 
back playing his position. 

Out of the So men who tried out for the team, 17 
have been picked to start the season. The pitching 
will be done by "Chuck" Forstbaeur, "Rube" 
Weathers. "Jimmie" Gallagher, William Terharr, 
"Whip" Gobel. Earl Jones, and Harold Jones, with 
Roy Kolb and Leo Shepanski at the receiving end. 
In the infield will be seen "Walt" Metcalf, "Walt" 
Keenan, John Coogan, Joe Minilla, and H. Bircher, 
while the outfield will be covered by Geo. Wallace, 
"Art" Young, and H. Flack. At the present 
time we have one of the best teams in the League, 
and with the support of the Kodak fans will bring 
home the pennant. 

Any baseball player around the Plant, who has 
not been out and who can help the team in any way, 
is invited to get in touch with Manager Bircher, 
or report for practice on Wednesday evening.

hundreds of people are employed, when it was on 
fire? If so, you know the importance of conducting

been a little slow, perhaps — let's see if we can't 
speed up a little. Take the training seriously, for

Genial Ed. King from the Credit Department 
strolled in yesterday and unburdened himself as 
follows: "There is one thing this Company ought 
to have if they are to keep in line with the other 
industrial plants of this city, and that's a Quoit 
League. Yes, I know pitching quoits dowTi by the 
blacksmith's shop with horseshoes for quoits and a 
piece of broom handle for a stake is considered the 
one purely bucolic sport. Try it once with the 
regulation four-pound circular quoit at a distance 
of from sixty to seventy-five feet, and you'll change 
your tune. Played according to the league rules, 
the modern quoit game is a splendid exercise, and to 
play well requires a combination of skill and muscle 
of no mean order." 

Cross questioned, Ed. admitted that he is some- 
what of an artist at the game himself and related 
some reminiscences of games where ringers were 
piled over the top of the stake and a micrometer 
called into play to settle disputed distances. 

Here is the nucleus for a new branch of athletics. 
A league is already in existence in the city, and it 
is up to the E. K. Co. to uphold their reputation 
as a leader in this branch of sport as well as in all

^Do you remember that we were talking about a 
Main Office Recreation Club in the last issue of 
the Kodak Magazine? Ever since then the Pro- 
motion Committee has been very much on the 

At the last meeting of the Kodak Office Repre- 
sentatives, a constitution, which was drawn up by 
a committee consisting of N. A. Van De Carr, 
Chairman, Jack Leysenaar, Elizabeth Euler, Sally 
Keefe, Charlie Johnson, Charlie Howard and 
Freeman Allen, was unanimously adopted. 

The Nominating Committee, consisting of Harry 
Seaman, Chairman, Grace Nolan, Muriel Handy, 
Arthur Bartholomew, and Bert Hayter, submitted 
prepared ballots, and the following officers were 
elected by majority vote: 

George Blair Presidenf 

Harry Seaman Vice-President 

Gus Sej'fried Treasurer 

Florence McAnaney Secretary 

With George Blair as President, and with the 
support of the other officers, the organization can- 
not help being a winner. 

George "Fleet Foot" Weiss, or better known as 
"George," Miss Locke's sunny, freckled-faced aid 
with the very broad smile, says that Jack Scott of 
the Development is OK to go to the circus with, and 
they had some time when the Big Show was in 

Jack and George started out at 5.30 and first took 
in the side shows, then by 8.30 were ready for the 
main event. George reports that the show was 
"Awful Good" and that the "Acrobaters" were the 
best he ever saw. 

Mr. E. L. Shuford is recovering from an operation 
for appendicitis performed at St. Mary's Hospital. 
His trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, has therefore been 
postponed, but he will leave on the SS. Vauban, 
arriving at Rio in July, where he will take up his 
duties as Manager of our new house in that city. 
We wish him every success in this undertaking. 

Our "Freddy Dewart" is to sail on the SS. 
Vauban the latter part of June for Buenos Aires, 
Argentine, S. A., to be absent some time, to gain 
a knowledge of Spanish and customs of the people. 

The girls of the Finishing Department held a 
handkerchief shower for Celeste Cady, June oth, 
in her office. She was very much surprised, and 
so were we, when we heard that Celeste was leaving 
us to become the bride of Mr. Paul Smith of 
Yonkers, N. Y. We're glad Celeste's dreams have 
come true.

This is Rosalia Cirotzki, one of our girls in 
the Testing and Packing Department. Part of her 
work is to transfer the serial numbers from the 
cameras to the cartons in which they are packed. 
She packs 400 cameras a day, and in some 
instances she found it difficult to determine with 
ease the serial number on the vertical Bed Support 
of the Folding Autographic Brownies. 

The supports are stamped with an automatic 
numbering machine at the Camera Works, with the 
serial numbers of the cameras of which they are a 
part. They are then nickel-plated and buffed — 
oftentimes to such an extent that the numbers are 
made illegible. When the camera is closed, the 
supports form a latch which locks the bed in place 
and the side on which the number is stamped is 

Miss Cirotzki believed that it would be easier 
to read the numbers if the polish were eliminated 
on that side of the support, and also that time and 
labor would be .saved. Here was a chance for a 
suggestion and she secured a blank and submitted 
the idea. A careful investigation was made, and 
it was found that the buffing operation which was 
causing the difficulty was unnecessary and could be 
profitably eliminated. The idea was adopted anfl 
Miss Cirotzki received an initial award of $100.00. 

This is a worth wliile suggestion and one where 
the saving can be figured down to dollars and cents, 
and we are only too glad to pay for such ideas and 
to award them proportionately. 

On the contrary, such ideas as moving ii tele- 
phone from wall to desk or changing the location 
of an electric fan are hardly suggestions worthy of 
any great award, even though a certain amount of 
benefit might be derived. 

A good suggestion is a good investment. Make 
your suggestions worth while. 


For the benefit of the newcomers in our midst — 
say those who haven't been around long enough to 
buy Eastman Kodak Co. stock yet — just a little re- 
minder of the way we try to handle the "Lost and 
Found" problem. 

Burt Mohlar's Office, Maintenance Department, 
first floor. Building 5, has been designated as Head- 
quarters for Lost and Found articles; so if you find 
anything that doesn't belong to you, please turn 
it in there; if you lose something, tell them about it. 


When we at the State Street Office attained the 
dignity of a six-story office building, with a really, 
truly elevator in it, we thought we had indeed 

After the first elevator was installed, and after a 
short series of other pilots, Joe happened along in 
September, 1907, and has been on the job ever since. 
Ask for Mr. Wilson, and you might find a whole lot 
of folks in the building who wouldn't know; but ask 
if thev know "Joe," and thev will sav "Sure." 


Vp to date, no one has ever been able to catch 
Joe without a smile on his face and a pleasant word 
for all comers. 

Joe no longer shoots a car skyward in person, 
except in cases of emergency, as he is now the 
official starter for the cars in the sixteen-story 
office building.

"Something doing around the Office? Bet Frank 
Strowger's got a hand in it." 

Frank Strowger doesn't quite make the "born- 
under-the-boiler" class; nevertheless, he's been 
around here for a td'hle long spell, at that, going on 
twenty-five years now. He started in as a book- 
keeper, but shifted soon to the Sales Department. 
About once a year, Frank used to make a sales 
trip to the Long Island and New Jersey dis- 
tricts, calling en what is known as the "resort 
trade." Now he is correspondent in the Sales 
Department, dealing with Government work and 
aerial work. 

The old saying, "Once a baseball player, always a 
fan," holds good in this case. In the Company's 
first baseball league, which was organized in 1906, 
the pitching of Frank Strowger was a big factor in 
keeping the Main Office team in the race. He still 
maintains his l)aseball interest, serving last year as 
Assistant Treasurer, and this year as Treasurer of 
the Eastman Kodak Baseball League. Frank is 
not a man, either. He has a "rep" 
as one of the best bowlers in the city, and repre- 
sented the Main Office in this sport as well. 

A farewell dinner was tendered to Mr. Young 
Wei Lee. Frederick W. Dewart and E. C. Osten, by

of this month for London, England, where he 
is to remain for a period of two or three months 
with Kodak, Limited, after which he will go to 
China in the interests of the company.

We wish to express to Miss Jessie Wilkinson 
our sincere sympathy. Het father, Mr. .Joseph 
Wilkinson, of 115 Hampton Road, died on May

The news of Margaret Geraghty's death was 
received with sorrow by those who knew her in 
Kodak Office, although with a deep sense of relief 
that her long period of suffering was ended. 

We believe that her death leaves each of us with a 
new consciousness of the value of life and the 
beauty of living for God and for others. 

We wish to extend our deepest sympathy to her 
mother and her sisters.

We just could not wait, was how the girls of the 
Accessory and Cabinet Departments put it, when 
asked about their May walk to East Maplewood on 
May 2nd. These young huskies had no concern 
for the street railway strike; this was a May walk, 
and with the assistance of Dorothy Stubbe's Pa and 
his Reo 6, experienced no difficulty in arriving at 
their destination, where they were amply refreshed 
by cream donated by George Rake. Some of 
the girls thought Julia Adams was straining hers, as 
she ate it with a fork, after which everything 
happened. This included swinging, teetering and 
tottering. Some property damage was done when 
the Misses Perrin and Stubbe broke the teeter which 
was constructed for moderately heavy children. 
Only once was Nurse Cunningham's official presence 
missed; that was when Grace Sampson and Merceda 
Maurer who sat on a stump tried to vamp two 
hornets and got stung. There was a nest in the 
stump. At 5:00 P. M. festivities ended, in which 
every one had had a swell time. They are now look- 
ing forward to other gatherings which are proving 
such great factors in promoting good fellowship 
among the employees. 

On Saturday. May 15th, a number of girls, with 
their friends, from the Covering Department hiked 
it to Durand-Eastraan Park. It being the first May 
walk of the season, every one was in fine shape to 
withstand the hike. The air vras so refreshing that 
all had a tremendous appetite and the lunch carried 
by each one readily disappeared. After spending a 
glorious afternoon, the return trip via the railroad 
ties was made to Sea Breeze and home by trolley. 
The committee in charge was Belle St?imer and 
Carrie Basch. 

Another May walk — This time the girls and boys 
of the Box Camera Department on Sunday. May 
^Srd, journeyed to Durand-Eastman Park. In 
arranging for this outing it was unanimou.sly voted 
to include the boys. Arriving at the Park. Mrs. 
Kate Titus wanted to pose for a picture, Mrs. Alice 
Greene started dinner and Anna Kehoe. with the 
assistance of the boys, started a ball game. Joe 
Epstein, mistaking Anna Kehoe's eye for a ball 
club, knocked her out in the first inning; this 
naturally stopped all activities until Anna was 
brought to. By this time dinner was ready and all 
having tremendous appetites, the rest of the day 
was pretty well taken up in eating lunch. At 6:00 
P. M. they made the trip home, all tired but happy. 




Don't think it for one minute. Harold Fleischer 
is not that kind of a boy. The "Shiner" he had the 
other morning when he came to work, Harold said 
he obtained in an auto accident.

Carl A. Schultz of the Wood-working Department 
started making cameras in 1887 for W. F. Carlton 
when located in one room of the Bee Hive building 
on Acjueduct Street, and soon outgrowing this place 
they moved on North Water Street; in 1895 they 
moved into the present building. Mr. Schultz 
has established a record which few employees can 
equal and of which he is justly proud, losing only four 
and one-half hours and coming late once in two years 

If you get up in the wee small hours of the morn- 
ing and see a man strolling around on your front 
lawn, do not shoot him up. as "Bob" Wetzel of the 
.\s5embly Department says it is wonderful how 
mushrooms spring up over night, and Bob is an 
expert in selecting them. 

Jolin May of the Assembly Dei)artinent has some 
fine garden. Jack came in the other morning all 
smiles and of course we wondered if it was a boy or 
girl, but it was neither. A few days ago Jack 
planted some beans and said they were up four 
feet in three days. 

Evidently Walter Van Sanford has found the 
right spot for fishing and now he is going to cut on 
the high cost of living. You should have seen his 
bathtub filled with fish; it looked like a pond at the 
State Fish Hatchery and Walter says he caught 
them with a hook and line. 

When out some evening in your "flivver" for a 
quiet spin with your wife or best girl, and you hear 
a noise like Barnuin & Bailey's steam calliope, just 
pull to one side and let her go by, as this is a part of 
the equipment of our Buick which has been missing 
from in front of the building for the past four months 
and has just returned with a new coat of paint and 
cream colored wheels. Mr. Ruttan says she is some 
baby since she had her overhauling and rest. 

We extend to Joe Isaac of the Inspection Depart- 
ment our sympathy on the death of his sister, 
Mrs. Frank Berry, who passed away Wednesday, 
June 9th.

to overflow the Commimity Chest which was done 
with good measure. Ninety-nine and seven-tenths

The Premo Works boast of two good rifle shots, 
Frank C. Sherman and John H. McKenny. Frank 
Sherman's percentage was 99. G and John McKenny's 
percentage was 91. '2. Both these men are members 
of the Citizens Rifle and Revolver Club of Rochester. 
These matches are held each winter. 90*^^ or better

We have it on good authority that Norman Huyck 
of the Purchasing Department is not only beautiful, 
but is a victim of habit. We saw he "huycked" it 
above the audience at the Victoria Theater in an 
airplane when Mile. Theo and her dandies were 
playing there. Now the report is that he is in a 
moving picture production which was staged at 
the same theater a few weeks ago. 

Virginia Wright of the Covering Department is 
back with us. Virginia says there is no place like 
the Premo. We are glad you like us so well. 

"Mike" Strebler of the Receiving Department 
says Kodak Park is all wrong in saying that they 
are pioneers in introducing the overalls idea. "Mike" 
says he has worn them all his life and he is no baby. 

Charles Young of the Assembly Department says 
if you want to get your name in the Kodak Magazine 
just buy a Ford. Charles, what's the name of the 
one we saw you pushing down Gregory Street. 

Concentration of thought is of ten difficult of attain- 
ment; but Nicholas Decker has adopted a unique 
method of accomplishing this feat. He recently 
appeared at work with his head tied to his shoulders 
by means of a thick cloth, thus enabling him to 
keep his head straight to the front. Here's hoping, 
Nick, that you have recovered from your stiff neck 
before this issue goes to print. 

John H. McKenny, Assistant Superintendent, has 
opened a new department within his office which is 
known as theFloralDepartment, audit is in charge of 
Alice Garrett, who, having pursued the study of 
Botany, is eminently cjualified to answer any ques- 
tions concerning the petals, leaves and stems. 
There will be found on display only the choicest 
flowers in season, sometimes even varieties out of 
season, such as snowballs in midsummer. 

Charles Loock of the Assembly Department says 
he is through with the rent profiteers. Charles 
bought a house at 18 Chase Street, Lincoln Park. 

The Green sisters of the Lacquering Department, 
Ethel and Marguerite, say they are going to help 
produce the girls to challenge the "Flying Squadron" 
of the Main Office. Good! We have the photographer 

Jack Lyons of the Plant Maintenance Department 
will enter into a life contract with Tessie Rickard 
of the Cost and Pay Roll Department. Now listen, 
folks, we hear the big day is coming off some time 
in September, so get ready for a treat and for 
goodness' sake keep it a secret ! 

Florence Walker (Irene Castle) of the Box Camera 
Department in announcing her engagement to 
Frederick Kronsbein, Jr., showed us her sparkler. 
It is quite evident Florence will not find it necessary 
to learn to write left-handed to show up the ring. 

Will some one please apply to the Common 
Council for the broadening of South Street adjoining 
our property so that Charles Young of the Tool 
Department may be able to swing his seven-pas- 
senger Hupmobile in to. the yard without the neces- 
sity of backing around and taking a part of the 
curb with him. 

The "Jolly Eleven," consisting of a number of 
Premo girls, held a dance in the Union League Hall, 
May 7th. This was one of the most successful 
dances the "Jolly Eleven" ever held, over two 
hundred attending, and all arrangements being 
made and carried out by the girls. After paying all 
bills a snug little sum was left, which they say will 
help them to buy their summer bathing suits. 

No I It is not the blasting in the river for the 
harbor that you hear every morning out on Capron 
Street. It is the Whincup Brothers of the Tool 
Department, Edward and Harry, coming in on their 
motorcvcle and sidecar. 





The marriage of Frances Dullea to Hubert Erdls 
took place Tuesday, May 18th, at SS. Peter and 
Paul's Church. The bride is employed in the 
Assembly Department and is well known through- 
out the plant. We extend to them our hearty 
congratulations and wish them a happy journey 
through life. 

Beatrice Glassick of the Covering Department 
says that showers of rice and confetti did not appeal 
to her. Beatrice was quietly married Saturday, 
May 8th, to Albert Hartung. May their life be one 
grand sweet song. 

A very pretty wedding was celebrated Saturday, 
May 'aQth, when Reata Davis of the Metal Depart- 
ment became the bride of August Reulbach of 138 
Friederich Park. After a short trip east in their 
Djlge car thsy will reside at 6 Raymond Street. 

Grace Stacklyn of the Assembly Department was 
united in the bonds of matrimony, Tuesday, May 
18th, to Richard Howell. Congratulatians. 

Ethel Mestler of the Inspecting Department was 
married Thursday, June 10th, to Carl Hunt. After 
a short honeymoon they will reside at Ithaca, N. Y. 

Alfred Sales of the Cabinet Department is the 
proud father of Herbert Stanley, born Sanday, 
May 16th. Congratulations, Alfred. 

Another Premo Daddy; Charles Loock of the 
Assembly Department is the happy Dad of an 
eight-pound girl, Leona Clara, born Sunday, May 
the 23rd. 

The concerts held in the Dining Room Tuesdays 
and Thursdays by our own Premo Club Orchestra 
are enjoyed by all the employees. They play as 
though they were entertaining Victor Herbert's 
patronizers and with the addition of Foster 
Crane and his saxophone, no mistaking, they are 
some entertainers.

Announcer, ^Master of Ceremonies and 
Marshall, the parade started. The Kodak 
Park Band led off, followed by the 
Plaint Managers, officers of the League, 
members of the Opening Day Committee, 
and the players. 



FANFARE of trumpets, brass bands, 
parades, and all the paraphernalia of 
formality appeared at Kodak Park on 
Saturday, June 5th, to usher in the second 
season of the Eastman Kodak Baseball 
League. Under the direction of Wilbur G. 
Woodams, Hawk-Eye, Chairman of the 
Opening Day Committee, the players of the 
League, numbering about seventy-five, 
obeyed the command to "fall in" in front 
of Fred Brehm, while he took the Cirkut 
picture shown on pages '24 and 25. Then, 
with Frank M. Crouch acting as Chief 

F. M. CROUCH at bat 
A . A . RUTTAN, catching 

To open up the season, Harry D. Haiglit, 
President of the League, took the mound, 
with Jack Robertson at the bat, and A. A. 
Ruttan catching. F. L. Higgins held 
down base, with P. S. Wilcox at 
second, W. F. Folmer at third, and J. S. 
Haste at short-stop. After a number of 
wild pitches and vain swings. Jack 
Robertson finally drove one through 
short, and galloped all the way around 
while the infield was playing acrobat with 
the horsehide. Then, Frank Crouch 
almost knocked the cover off the ball 



with a drive which ((uite upset Mr. 
Folmer's equiHbrium and the season was 

Five-inning games cannot, of course, 
be taken as an accurate criterion, but the 
brand of ball put up Opening Day seems 
to guarantee some mighty fast battles in 
the League this season. Hawk-Eye 

registered the first shut-out of the season, 
bunching hits in the fourth inning to beat 
Premo 3 — 0. Kodak Park and the Main 
Office put on a beautiful pitching duel, with 
mound-work which would have looked 
good in a midsummer game. Errors lost 
the game for the Main Office, the score 
being 2 — 1. The final battle between 
Camera Works and Folmer-Century was 
a little looser. Camera Works winning 

In spite of the raw, cold day, and very 
threatening clouds, about 1000 fans came 
out for one or another of the three games.

Saturday, June l^th, saw a slight shake- 
up in the standing of the teams, when 
Hawk-Eye trimmed Camera Works 11 
to 4 in a slow game at West Higli. Kodak 
Park managed to stay tied for first place 
by nosing out P'olmer-Century 9 — 8 in 
a nip-and-tuck ten-inning session. The 
Main Office broke into the "Won" 
column, scoring a 4 — '■I victory over 
Premo, chieflv because the Premo batters 

were unable to connect with Diehl when 
men were on the bases.

Someone remarked the other day that 
the Golf Championship of the Eastman 
Kodak Company has never been settled, 
and one of his listeners suggested that a 
tournament be run off to decide it. 

The Editor is "willin',".so if you are 
a golfer or even play at the game, send 
in your name and departmental location 
to the Editor sometime between now and 
July 10th, and we will see what can be 
done about fixing up a tournament. 


The Kodak's first season in the semi- 
pro baseball realm was scheduled to open 
Sunday, June 20th, with Fted Blum's 
strong K. of C. Team opposing the cream 
of the Kodak League on the Kodak Park 

For the second game of the season. 
Manager Ed. Goodridge had booked the 
Norwich Clothes Team which lost its 
opening game 5 — 4 to the K. of C. outfit. 

Later games arranged by Business 
Manager Goodridge include a holiday trip 
over July 3rd, 4th and 5th, a game in 
Syracuse on July 3rd and games on July 
4th and 5th against the St. Regis Athletic 
Club at Deferiet. On July 11th the 
Hewitts, Champions of Buffalo, are com- 
ing here for a game at Kodak Park, while 
on August 27th the Kodak Team will play 
the Ingersoll-Rand Co. at Painted Post. 


Tennis players throughout the Com- 
pany are putting up their holler, too. 
They see no reason why, if there is going 
to be a Kodak Golf Champion, there 
ought not to be a Tennis Champion as 
well. In fact, some of them think they 
can turn in a longer list of entries for 
such a tournament than can followers of 
the little white pill. 

If this hits you, send your entry in to 
the Editor anv time before Julv 10th.

T so happens in this world that a great 
many people have had ideas, knowl- 
edge of how^ to do things and a 
possibility to do, but they have not 
taken action. They have thought of 
schemes; have worked out plans, roughly; have 
considered that this or that was the way to ac- 
complish certain things; but they have not tried 
them out They have put them ofl until to- 
morrow. A great element in any success, there- 
fore, is the doing of that thing promptly which 
seems to be worth while. Some ot the things 
carried out will prove successful, others may not; 
but the very doing of them will suggest better 
schemes, will animate everybody around to make 
suggestions and to do things. It is not enough 
to think that a thing ought to be done; the 
thinking is only valuable when the thing is done. 
Turn your thoughts into actions." — B.A.F.

TO almost everyone there is a certain 
fascination in the working of any 
well made machine or instrument, and 
likewise it is equally interesting to 
watch the working of the machines 
which help in producing them. 

AATien you examine a Kodak you 
cannot help but admire the precision 
with which each part works and how each 
part fits accurately into the other parts. 

In the Camera Works where are 
produced hundreds of thousands of 
Kodaks and Brownies each year, to 
say nothing of the many other things 
there manufactured, will be found many 
interesting stories. Manufacturing in 
such large quantities requires the aid 
of many special machines, most of 
which have been invented and built 
in the Camera Works by our own 
engineers and workmen. 

Just to afford you some idea as to 
the hugeness of the operations in the 
Camera Works, let us give you a few 
figures as to the amount of raw material 
used during the past year: Aluminum, 
477,771 pounds; brass, 1,918,967 pounds; 
steel. 1,. 312,029 pounds; leather. 2,229,240 
square feet, and lumber, 1.. 300. 000 board 

Now before any device can be produced 
it has to be invented and designed, 
and accurate plans for its manufacture 
put into the hands of the workmen. 
So, if you are to take a trij) through 
the Camera Works it will be well to 
start in the experimental department. 

We don't believe in standing still or 
in travelling on past performances, so 
we have a large staff of inventors and 
expert designers who are continually 
on the lookout for new wrinkles and 
ideas. The heads of all the operating 

departments work hand in hand with 
the experimental staff so any improve- 
ments, or new models, can speedily and 
efficiently be produced. 

Illustration No. 1 

Our suggestion system plays an 
important part as we receive many new 
and excellent ideas from the employees 
themselves. All ideas from department 
heads and other employees are given a 
thorough tryout in the experimental 
department. If favorably passed upon 
the estimating department takes a hand, 
and if the idea is found practicalile 
the models and plans go back to the 
experimental dojKirtment for the final 

Next come the plans and the manu- 
facture of the various tools and dies. 
which are frequently quite an item. 


Illustration Xo. i 

The handling of raw stock in such 
large amounts requires some planning, 
and all flat stock, such as sheets of 
steel, aluminum, brass, and leather, is 
cut in sizes that will give the least weight 
and size for ease in stamping. 

Several batteries of huge punch presses 
are required to stamp out the various 
metal parts. The largest battery, 133 
machines, is in one of the basements, 
and is used for stamping the larger 
parts, while another battery of twenty- 
five machines turns out the small parts 
for shutters; another series of punch 
presses is used for stamping out leather. 

Illustration Xo. 1 shows one of tiie 
large presses for punching camera frames. 

For the Autographic Brownies the 
frames, fronts and bed plates are of 
steel, while in the better and larger 
models of Kodaks they are of aluminum. 

To protect the workmen on these a special guard is provided as 
shown, which automatically at 

right angles to the workman's arm and 
pushes it away from the die when the 
punch is placed in operation. This

guard was devised in the Camera Works, 
and is but one of the many safety devices 
in use. Besides the })arts stamped out 
by the punch presses, many round parts, 
such as small screws, rivets, bushings, 
etc., are turned out by automatic screw 
machines (a part of a battery of 135 of 
these machines is shown in illustration 
No. 2). 

These machines are intricate affairs, 
each equipped with special attachments 
so that it can automatically thread and 
accurately turn to correct dimensions 
any part desired in large quantities. 
The raw stock in the form of rods is 
fed through long pipes as shown and 

turned into the numerous parts, with 
but little attention from the attendants. 
Tlie normal weekly ()ut])ut of these 
machines is one milhon parts, and this 
fjuantity is fretjuently increased to a 
million and a half parts. 

In addition there is a large battery of 
milling and drilling machines on which 
the final operations on the flat and 
round parts are performed. Many of the 
exposed metal parts on the cameras are 
nickeled. The parts to be nickeled are 
[)iaced in large tanks as shown in illustra- 
tion No. 3. These tanks contain a special 
solution, together with bars of nickel. 
Electric energy is made to pass through 


Illustration No. 7 


Illustration No. 8 

this solution which deposits the nickel 
on the metal parts suspended in the 
tanks. Before being placed in the nickel 
solution, the parts are dipped in a 
pickling bath, as it is called, to remove 
oil and other foreign matter. After 
being nickeled the parts are buffed and 
polished with rouge. 

Those metal parts which are a part 
of the interior of the camera and are 
not nickeled are given a coating of japan. 
One of the latest methods of japanning 
is employed, as shown in illustration 
No. 6, the japan being sprayed on in 
sjjecial hoods. This method is far more 
efficient than coating by hand, and is 
much healthier for the employees. After 
tlie parts are japanned they are placed 
in large ovens, (see illustration No. 7,) 
and baked for a definite period.

One of the most interesting processes 
is the making of the bellows; illustration 
No. 4 show^s one of the bellows-making 

A number of specially devised auto- 
matic machines are used in bellows 
making, which not only increases the 
output but provides absolute uniformity. 

The woodworking department is much 
the same as any other woodshop: 
illustration No. 8 shows one of the 
shaping machines where the wooden 
top and bottom parts of the Kodak 
are made. On the Special Kodaks these 
tops and bottoms are made of Bakelite 

Shutter making demands a high degree 
of skill, as it is easily on a par with 
watch making. One of the shutter 
assembling rooms is shown in illustration 
Xo. .5. 

In the assembling rooms the Kodak 
frames go from bench to bench, and 
down one aisle and up another, picking 
up the various parts as they go until at 
last they become the finished article. 

From the assembling rooms the cameras 
go to the inspection department where 
each one is carefully examined and 
tested. See illustration Xo. 9. 

From the inspection department, the 
cameras go to the packing and shipping 
department where they are again in- 
spected before being packed in a carton 
for deliverv. 

Besides these final inspections, every 
department has what is called an incoming 
and outgoing inspection. By means of 
these repeated inspections and by the 
most careful selection of every bit of 
raw material we are assured of a 
uniformly high class product; good 
workmanship is a habit with us. 

Before leaving the Camera Works, 
let us have a look at the general offices 
located on the top floor of the new 
addition on the Piatt Street side; see 
illustration Xo. 10. 

All through, the Camera Works is a 
pretty good place to work, don't you 


Here's a chance for any of you fellows 
who want to get back into the "Squads 
East and W^est" atmosphere once in a 
while for a little diversion. There are 
still a few vacancies in the ranks of the 
Second Ambulance Company of the 
Xational Guard. Headquarters of this 
organization are in the Xew York State 
Armory, Main Street East. Drills (foot 
and mounted) are held one night each 
week, and training also includes a course 
of lectures on first aid. 

The term of enlistment is three years 
except for Veterans of the World War, 
who may sign up for a twelve-month 

There is scarcely a person — man, wom- 
an or child — in France who is not an owjier 
of something. And these days a nation 
of OWX'ERS is in a mighty enviable 
position. Fifty-seven per cent of the 
depositors in Savings Banks are women. 
In our own Postal Savings System only 
41% are American born, and they own 
but 28% of the money on deposit. The 
rest belongs to foreigners. 

Of the 39,000,000 people in France 
more than 15,000,000 have Savings Banks 
accounts. Of the 100,000,000 people in

Main Office, Eastman Kodak Co., Rochester, N. Y. 

We publish sixteen thousand copies 
of the Kodak Magazine each month, 
so you see the editor thus has sixteen 
thousand and one bosses; each individual 
who reads it, and the company taken 
as a unit. 

So, to make the publication worth 
while to the company which pays for it, 
it must be worth while to the majority 
of its readers. 

Now^ you will find a good many different 
tastes, ideas and opinions — to say nothing 
of widely varying degrees of experience, 
with this number of readers, so you see 
the editor has to carefully weigh the 
contents of each issue to provide a well 
balanced and palatable ration. 

Forty years ago, and perhaps even 
less, the editor was suppo.sed to be, and 
was in many instances, a moulder of

it is more the mission of the editor

Athletic and recreational pro.spects 
are pretty bright all through the Kodak 

Baseball is going strong, tennis likewise, 
and swimming ditto. The telephone of

We have no exact figures at hand, but 
you can well imagine how^ many hundreds 
of calls are put through our various plant 
telephone exchanges every day. The 
majority of these calls are business calls; 
but on the other hand a certain percent- 
age is purely personal. 

Between the hours of ten in the morning 
and twelve o'clock noon, and from three- 
thirty to five-thirty in the afternoon are 
the rush hours in our exchanges. 

Saturday, all morning, is a particularly 
busy time, as very many "rush" orders 
are received for immediate shipment. 

In the interest of good service, won't 
you please make all your telephone con- 
versation as brief as is consistent with 
courtesy, and avoid, as much as possible, 
using the phones for personal messages 
during the rush hours. 




In the June issue we afforded you a 
pretty clear idea of how Dr. Sawyer, our 
Medical Director, believes our Medical 
Department should be conducted. 

Selecting a staff of doctors for an 
organization such as ours is no small 
task. Not only must every member be 
thoroughly up in everything that pertains 
to his profession, but in addition he 
must be a human being — a "regular 
fellow" — in order to work in harmony 
with our ideas, and make his work 
worth while in its fullest sense. 

We feel that our staff comes up to 
these requirements fully, so allow us to 
introduce to you first. Dr. B. J. Slater, 
a graduate of the Army Medical School, 
who was in service for two years. He 
was Chief Examiner of the Chief of 
Engineers Office, Washington, and 
Medical Examiner for the Engineers 
Examining Board. 

Dr. R. B. Crain comes to us from a 
course in Industrial Hvgiene at Harvard 

School. Dr. Crain was in Belgium and 
France and experienced very active 
service in the fighting area. He was 
discharged with the rank of Captain. 

Dr. A. D. Kaiser also saw military 
service, as he was on duty with Base 
Hospital 19 in France and later at 
Bordeaux. He has charge of the 
Children's Department, Rochester Gen- 
eral Hospital. 

Dr. G. P. Thomas will have been with 
us three years this fall. He graduated 
from the University of Pennsylvania 
Medical School in 1901 ; is Medical 
Officer of Troop H. 

Dr. Robert W. Angevine has had a 
very wide experience in chemistry, hospi- 
tal service, and surgery. He enlisted 
as a private in November, 1917, 
commissioned a Captain in the U. S. 
Medical Dejjartment and discharged 
from service in February, 1919. 

We know you are going to like all of 
these men, and we are glad to introduce 
them to you. (See page 2.)

The¥v^ Department of 





OF THE United States of America in the war with 

THE Imperl\l German Government and the Imperial 

AND Royal AusTRO-HuNGARL^N Government 

iSsCRSrAFY OF tt^* 

MOST of us would rather not talk 
about the war, or even think 
about it — except to find some means 
of solving some of its many after- 
problems. But there are exceptions; 
we took an immense pride in our service 
flags at the different plants and in the 
knowledge that so many of our boys were 
doing their part, and we did our individual 
best to help win the war. 

We knew, in a vague sort of a way, 
that the company was engaged in various 
war activities, but few realized to what 
extent and just what was accom- 

So it is \<\\\\ a feeling of just pride 
in our organization that we reproduce the 
citation for distinguished service awarded 
the company by the War Department, 
and recount in a brief way what we were 
able to accomplish. 

We remember the United States School 
of Aerial Photography at Kodak Park, 
and how we placed at the Govern- 
ment's disposal buildings and facilities 
for the accommodation of one thousand 
students, and supplied a corps of our 
experts to act as instructors. A part 
of the Research Laboratory was also 
turned over to the Government for the 
study of problems connected with aerial 
photography, marine camouflage and 
the like. The work of the laboratory 
also included many other problems, 
such as the designing of non-dimming 
eye pieces for use with gas masks, filters 
for signalling systems, and the com- 
pounding of special emulsions. A fuel 
soh-ing the problem of intense heat 
without smoke was 
laboratory discoveries. 

We also produced 
for the varnishing of 

another of our 

cellulose acetate 
aeroplane wings 



in immense quantity, we being the only 
concern in the country with the necessary 
skill and equipment. 

We also designed and manufactured 
telescopic sights for aeroplane guns, 
and special lenses for air photography. 
The hand and automatic models of 
aeroplane cameras designed by our experts 
opened a new era for air photography. 

One of the most interesting things 
we produced was the gvm camera. In 
this invention the camera was attached 
to the air man's gun and instead of 
recording the hits on a target the target 
itself was recorded on the air man's 
film. With each "shot" a picture was 
made showing the exact position of the 
opponent's plane in the field; this was 
of immense value in training aerial 
gunners. This camera was likewise 
provided with a watch attachment which 
showed the precise moment of firing 
within a fraction of a second, and so 
avoiding any question as to who made 
the first hit. 

Our manufacturing resources were 
likewise equal to the extraordinary 
demands created by the war for films, 
plates, chemicals, dyes, photographic 
papers, cameras and other products. 
For many of these things the Government 
was absolutely dependent uj)on us. 

a vase; somehow it got broken, and into 
a waste basket the pieces went. 


Ugh I you sputtery, scratchy thing," 
and with a tug you yank out the offending 
pen point and toss it into the convenient 
waste basket. 

"Waste" basket is right, for it is the 
receptacle not only for things no longer 
useful, but when improperly used becomes 
a time waster as well. 

In go worn out pen points, a bunch 
of old papers pinned together, perhaps 
the broken pieces of a pocket mirror, 
or a jagged piece of tin or other sharp 

Xot so long ago, over on one of the 
desks in the Premo factory, there reposed 


All the dangerous things in a waste 
basket usually succeed in successfully 
concealing themselves underneath and 
between the waste paper, and other 
lawful contents of the basket. 

After working hours, when the light 
is none too good, in comes some one 
of the cleaning force. Perhaps a hand 
comes in contact with a corroded pen- 
point or a bit of broken glass, examination 
shows a cut or a scratch, but no time 
to stop now. the nurse has gone home 
anyway, so the hand has to take a chance. 

Possibly no harm beyond a temporary 
inconvenience results, but quite possibly 
the next morning the hand is swollen 
and painful. 

Severe cases of blood poisoning have 
resulted from such causes — and due 
directly to someone's thoughtlessness. 

Now it hurts Tom, or Pete, or Mary 
of the cleaning force just as much as it 
would any of the rest of us to be injured. 
Lost time or illness is a serious misfortune 
to them, even if of short duration, and a 
calamity if the injury proves severe. 

Just put yourself in tlie place of these 
workers who come in after you have 
gone home — and keep out of the waste 
baskets any and everything that might 
possibly do them harm. 





EVERY child is entitled to the firmest 
possible foundation of good health. 

Without this foundation, the child re- 
mains handicapped throughout life; his 
education is retarded and when the work- 
ing period is reached, he suffers losses 
through absence from duty. 

Has your child the proper foundation? 

Many children suffer from nose and 
throat afflictions, seemingly of little con- 
sequence at the time, but which later 
develop into serious maladies such as 
tonsilitis, quinsy, tuberculosis, diphtheria, 
rheumatism, pneumonia, etc. 

Has the child a healthy throat.^ Is the 
nose free and unobstructed and able to 
perform the full duty, which is of the 
utmost importance to both mental and 
physical health and vigor? 

Only an expert can determine, unless 
the diseased condition is extreme. 

Your interest in your child is your 
greatest interest, and you naturally would 
want only the most expert opinion and 

Perhaps you do not feel able just now 
to pay for such service. 

Here is your opportunity to know: It 
will cost you nothing to find out whether 
or not your child has such a handicap. 
And if he has, the cost for an operation 
will be but $5.00. 

The Rochester Dental Dispensary rea- 

lizes the great need for this service to the 
children of Rochester. The Trustees of 
the Dispensary have arranged to have a 
staff of the best surgeons and nurses in 
attendance during this month for the 
purpose of examining and, when neces- 
sary, performing operations for the re- 
moval of tonsils and adenoids. 

If, upon examination at the Dispensary, 
the child's throat is found to be in a 
healthy condition, there will be no charge 
whatsoever, and if an operation is neces- 
sary, the charge will be but five dollars, 
which is about half the cost to the 

Do not neglect this opportunity. Ade- 
noids are quite common, and are the cause 
of more discomfort and more ailments 
than any other diseased condition of child- 
hood. Diseased tonsils are almost certain 
to lead to serious future ailments. 

If an operation is necessary, now is 
the best time of the year to have it per- 
formed, as there is much less risk of 
catching cold and. in addition, your child 
can return to school in shape to make the 
best of his opportunities. 

The nurse in the Medical Department 
of your plant will afford full particulars: 
see her at the earliest opportunity. 

Remember, the charge for the operation, 
if an operation is necessary, is but five 
dollars. The examination is free. 

Former U. S. Secretary of Commerce 
Wm. C. Redfield says: "A nation of 
people that is increasing its savings 
at the rate of a million dollars a day is 
not a nation in which there is .serious 
widespread economic distress." 

The very habit of expecting that the 
future is full of gootl things for you, that 
you are going to be prosperous and happy, 
that you are going to have a fine family, a 
beautiful home, and are going to stand 
for something, is the best kind of capital 
witli which to start life. 

There's more lying about money than about any other one thing 
in the world. Money isn't half the curse it's often painted — nor 
half the blessing. It all dejKMids on who owns it. 




There is a decided interest in our 
Photographic Print Competition, and 
we have received a goodly number of 
inquiries regarding it — all of which is 
mighty encouraging. 

There are many very clever amateur 
photographers in the Kodak organization, 
and we hope through these competitions 
to develop many more. 

The awards are well worth your while, 
and the opportunities for good pictures 
are everywhere in the vicinity of Roch- 
ester, as it is one of the beauty spots of 

In the first issue of the Kodak Magazine 
we made mention of our amateur 
photographic text book, "How to Make 

Good Pictures." You will find this 
book a whole lot of help in picture 
making as it is the standard work of its 
kind, and over four hundred thousand 
copies have been sold; the price of this 
book to employees is twenty-four cents. 

Just a word further regarding photo- 
graphs showing a person or persons. 
When you take a picture such as is shown 
in illustration No. 1, obtain the name 
and address of the persons, so that in case 
the picture is selected for an award you 
can obtain, on one of the forms we provide, 
the consent of the persons for its use by 
us. No awards will be paid until such a 
release is in our hands. 

For a picture like the one shown in 




illustration Xo. 2, no consent of the per- 
son will be necessary as the figure is not 
of sufficient prominence. 

Of course, if your picture happened 
to be of some scene on, say, a bathing 
beach with hundreds of people in it you 
would not l)e expected to get the consent 
of each one, but if you singled out any 
one person or group such consent would 
be necessary. Wherever the person is 
recognizable the written consent must 
be obtained. 

Get your camera working right away 
so as to have a good number from 
which to make selection for entry for the 
first contest. 


MOST of us are receiving more in 
wages than before the war; some 
of us very much more, but with this 
increase in wage has come an increase in 
everything that pertains to living, and 
so it will pay us to analyze conditions 
as they are at the present moment. 

Generally speaking, conditions are 
favorable, but very many adjustments 
have yet to be made before we can 
expect a return to what can be called 
normal conditions. 

Here is what the National (,'ity Bank 
of New York in its July report has to 
say on the situation: 

"The prevailing opinion about prices 
is that an effective stop has been put to 
the upward movement. 

"The endless round of rising wages 
and prices could not go on indefinitely." 

All authorities agree that there has 
been no over-production, except along a 
few lines and in a limited number of 

The world is still understocked with 
necessities. It needs an enormous 
amount of railway cfiuipment. An 
enormous amount of construction work 
remains to be done, and it may be years 
before the l)uil(ling of homes meets the 

requirements of the people. All the 
world is suffering from a shortage of fuel, 
both coal and oil. 

At the same time and in the face of 
these conditions, prices on some things 
have been lessened. 

Shoes, clothing, hides and leather, 
wool and silk, as well as cotton goods, 
are well below the levels current earlier 
in the year. 

The general crop situation has im- 
proved steadily and is very encouraging. 

It is reasonable to suppose that the 
crops of Europe will be larger than in 
any year since the war began, and 
reports so indicate, but until Russia is 
again in position to export foodstuffs 
and raw materials, Western Europe will 
necessarily depend largely upon the 
United States and Canada. The crop 
outlook for Canada is on a par with this 

The sugar situation is becoming easier; 
about 21,000 tons have been purchased 
in Argentina, which will come along later 
in the season, and the expectations are 
for larger productions in all the sugar 

While the foregoing facts are comfort- 
ing, the truth is that the wants of the 
country are in excess of the industrial 
capacity of the country, and so for the 
present we cannot hope for any general, 
all-around reduction in the cost of living. 

The thing to do is to make every 
working day count in the way of produc- 
ing the goods for which the country is 
clamoring; you to supply the goods 
some other man wants, and the men in 
other lines to do the same, that you may 
have the things you need. 

Avoid extravagant purchases; live well, 
but wisely; make your garden produce 
to the limit; put away every cent 
you can in the V)ank or in Liberty Bonds, 
and then when old Mr. Ironman dollar 
again attains his former purchasing 
power you will practically have made 
two for every one you have saved or 





The Girls' Twilight League was officially opened 
on Wednesday, June !23rd. The game was played 
on the Athletic Field and resulted in a victory for 
Carrie Smith's team over that of A. McCarthy. 
Only outdoor baseball is now being played. The 
reason for discontinuing the indoor was to enable 
the girls to become more familiar with the hard 
ball, thereby improving their game. Games are 
played every ^londay, Wednesday and Friday 
evenings at 5:30 P. M. Stay down some night 
and see a real go. 


About 110 employees of the Reel ^Manufacturing, 
Reel Gauging and Tin Can Departments attended 
their annual outing, which was held at Island 
Cottage. Automobiles were used to transport 
the crowd to the lake, where dinner was served. 
During the afternoon the usual picnic sports 
•were indulged in. The baseball game between 
the first and second floor girls was a very spirited 
affair and resulted in a victory for the second 
floor. Teams representing the Reel and Tin Can 
Departments also played a baseball game, which 
after a very tight struggle was won by the Can 
Shop. J. S. Harmon acted as General Chairman 
and Toastmaster at the dinner, and Frank Kane 
was Manager of Sports and Chairman of the 
Arrangement Committee. During the dinner 
spec lies were made by Frank Kane, J. Bergen, 
W. Maynard and Anna Cushing. The evening 
was devoted to dancing. 


The attention of the members of the old Guillod 
Post is called to the fact that their dues for the last 
half of this year should now be paid. By paying 
for six months they will be even with the new 
Legion fiscal year, beginning January 1st. 

The Post is still out after the ex-service men 
who are not yet Legionnaires, and urges these men 
to get in touch with members, or come out to the 
regular Post meetings, which are held every second 
Friday of each month in Hiokatoo Hall. Fall in! 


At a recent meeting of those who are interested 
in tennis, held in the Assembly Hall, a committee 
was elected to handle the afiFairs of the Men's 
Tennis Club for the season of 19'20. This committee 
is composed of Dr. F. E. Ross, Chairman; F. Willis, 
J. Jenkinson, H. Wilson and O. Sprague. Fred 
Willis has been elected Captain of the first team. 
The courts have all been resurfaced and are now 
in excellent condition. Lockers have been assigned 
to the players and everything is ready for a ban- 
ner year. We have again affiliated with the 
Rochester Tennis League and had up to July 1st 
played two matches. The first against the Roch- 
ester Tennis Club resulted in a defeat, due 
particularly to the fact that our team was not 
fully organized at the time and lacked practice. 
In the second match, howcA'cr, our boys scored a 
shut out against the Bausch & Lomb team, winning 

Plans are being considered for a tournament 
although final arrangements have not as yet been 
made. P'rom the interest displayed, however, it 
would undoubtedly be a great success. 






The E. & M. Drafting Department held its third 
annual picnic at Island Cottage. 

About 100 motored to the grounds where a 
chicken and fish dinner was served at one o'clock. 
During the dinner H. G. Dewey, Toastmaster, 
read telegrams from Senator Harding. Marion, 
Ohio, U. S. A., and John Barleycorn, Santiago, 
Cuba, expressing their regret at not being able to 
attend, owing to circumstances beyond their control. 
A musical program was rendered during the dinner 
by a quintet under the direction of Howard O. 
Snyder, assisted by O. V. Sprague at the piano. 
Special features were the singing of popular choruses 
by everybod.v and the piano solos by Mr. Flint, 
who when announced by Mr. Dewey, gracefully 
arose and gave a demonstration of technique, 
execution and musical interpretation seldom 
equalled — by depositing a nickel in the player 
piano. Three hearty encores were responded to 
with the same grace, regardless of car fare. 

The ball game between the Engineers and 
Draftsmen was won by the drafting team with a 
score of 13 to 10. Mutt and Jeff (see page 2i) 
umpired and were obliged to banish several of the 
engineering team to the >i(l(^ lines for disputing 

decisions. The outstanding features of the game 
were the hitting of A. E. Schell and pitching of 
Oscar Sprague and Julius Voss. 

The sports which followed the ball game were 
capably handled by Millard Comstock, Jerry 
Welles and J. G. Jones, and the following winners 
were awarded prizes by George Diemer: 100-yard 
dash (open) — 1st, F. Brownell; "2nd, Tom Wright; 
3rd, C. H. Hart. Fat Men's Race— 1st. F. J. Crouden; 
"2nd, A. S. Hadley. Dog Race— 1st, C. R. Hauser; 
^nd, W. C. Rinehart; 3rd, D. L. Davies. Obstacle 
Race — 1st, F. Brownell; '-2nd, C. R. Hauser. Chariot 
Race — 1st, H. W. Dirksen and H. Sonderman; 
^nd. Tom Wright and M. Comstock. 

On the whole it was the largest and most enjoyable 
picnic ever held by the Engineering and Drafting 
Department, and they are already looking forward 
to the clam bake which will be held in the fall, for 
as the girls of this department are to attend this 
bake, a big time is expected. 

The "How" Club of Department No. 40 was 
entertained at the homes of Harold \'on Bramer 
on July '2, and George WeUzer on July J). A 
very good time was had by all present.

There are already 43 members enrolled in the 
Girls' Tennis Club, and a scratch tournament 
is being run to determine the rating of each player 
so that the best may be selected to represent the 
Association against the other teams in the city. 
Marie Forbes, who is in charge of the Girls' team, 
is available practically every evening for those who 
desire instruction, and Anne Dalzell is assisting 
her by taking charge of the advanced players. 
It is very gratifying to note the interest which is 
being taken in this sport by our girls. Three 
courts have been .set aside for their exclusive use 
which are busy most of the time. After the present 
tournament is finished the team will be picked 
and the matches which have been scheduled played

The Kodak Park Soccer Team is progressing 
quite satisfactorily under the restriction recently 
imposed on the teams affiliated with the National 
Association, reducing the number of players carried 
by any team to eighteen. Several changes have 
been made from time to time in our line-up, which 
we feel confident have strengthened our playing. 
E. Langridge. who has had considerable experience 
with R. & D. Clubs, has recently been signed on 
with the Park; Ed. AUardice, who last year was 
with the MacNaughton Rangers, has also returned 
to our club. He is helping "Doc" Yates with the 
training and first aid work for the team. On 
the other hand we have lost one of our old stand-bys. 
Jack Connelly, who has secured his release and 
will be in the Celtic line-up. 

In the first round of the North Western Cup, 
the game ended 1-0 in favor of the City Moose. 
It was a very hard game and the club management 
is well satisfied with the efforts of the players 
and confident of future victory. Much credit for 
the success of our team is flue Leigh Rife and "Doc" 

If there is a good "goalie" in the plant who 
wishes to play with the Kodak Park team, we 
request that he send his name to the K. P. A. A. 

The regular meetings of the Soccer Club are 
held Wednesday evenings at 8:00 P. M. in the 
Assembly Hall. An invitation is extended to all 
interested persons to attend. 


The first annual picnic of the members of the 
Industrial Economy Department and their families 
was held at Maplewood Inn. The party arrived 
at the Inn at 1 P. M. and at 1 :30 sat down to a big 
chicken dinner. "Oh, Boy," how that man Schulz 
can eat chicken legs! Susan La Dine said she 
would rather have the wings, as she will stand a 
better show of getting to Heaven. 

After dinner a ball game was played between two 
teams, with Case and Hart as captains. Just a 
Case of Harts being trump — score 8 to 10. 

Following the game there was a three-legged 
race for men, 100-yd. dash for men, 50-yd. dash for 
ladies, and a potato race for ladies, which was 
run off in great shape; also a game called "swat 
the Kai.ser." Gosh! how some of those ladies can 
swat. Maggie of the "Bringing up Father" fame 
has nothing on those ladies for using the club.

much. The men numbering 125 left the Park at 
twelve o'clock sharp, going by auto to Rifle Range, 
where a fish and chicken dinner was served, after 
which a ball game was played between the married 
and single men, the single men being the winners. 
The usual other sports were indulged in. A buffet 
lunch was served all afternoon.

months, but will return again in September. 

Joseph Dolce, of Department No. 40 (Pyro), 
was married on July 10th to Marie Grego. Good 
luck, Joe. 

The mother of Cecilia Biegler, of the Box Depart- 
ment, passed away on July 4th after a long illness. 
We extend our sympathy. 

The chemists of Building No. 40 Laboratory 
laid down their test tubes and retorts on Saturday, 
July 10th, forgot their researches on photographic 
developers, and journeyed to Sodus Point for a 
picnic. They left the Park in autos shortly before 
one o'clock and, after a delightful ride, reached 
their destination at about 2:30 P. M. 

Immediately after their arrival a ball game 
was played in which the Dichlorhydrochinonsul- 
phonic acids defeated the Monomethylparamino- 
phenolsulphates to the tune of 11-6. A feature 
of the game was the head-on slide home of J. D. 
Schubeck, who wore sun goggles throughout the 

At six o'clock a very tempting chicken and 
fish dinner was served at the Harris House, to which 
the chemists did full justice. 

In a fi.shing contest which was held after dinner, 
F. A. Giilice and John J. Schmitt. still fishing with 
worms, took the laurels from H. B. Keegan, M. B. 
Punnett and J. D. Schubeck, who were casting 
with artificial bait, by landing a 2:^4 lb. pickerel 
and several small fish while their competitors got 
nothing. Mr. Giilice hooked the big fish while 
angling from a pier ami Schmitt landed it with his 
hands after climbing down the piles to the water's 
edge. The luck of the winner so piqued the invet- 
erate fishermen, H. B. Keegan and George Weltzcr. 
that they remained over night to fish and returned 
Sunday afternoon with a good string, although 
the largest pickerel which they caught, a gamy 
fisli weighing 14 lbs., cut their line and got away 
while they were trying to land it. 

The party reached the city on their return 
journey at midnight. Those attending wish to 
give a vote of thanks to Thos. Murray. Jr.. for 
the splendid arrangements.

At a recent meeting of the Camera Club the 
pinners' Class in photography was given a 
very interesting talk on the making of good nega- 
tives, by HarrisDn Tuttle. 

The talk covered facts in practical photography 
starting with the making of sensitive material, 
correct exposure, selection of developer, taking in 
consideration the ingredients of developing solution, 
concentration of developer, temperature of developer 
and time of development, fixing, washing and 

Examples of under, correct, and over develop- 
ment, each being applied to under, correct, and 
over exposure, were given, and many other 
interesting examples of freak negatives, such as 
double exposures, air bells, light and development 
fog, hypo spots on negative and many others 
which every amateur photographer will get. 

Demonstrations in tank and tray development 
were given, and the advantage and disadvantage 
of each discussed. 

More talks have been planned and the club 
urges every member interested in photography 
to be present, as the fundamentals of chemistry 
are important, even to the amateur.

Camera Clul) members are watching the large 
bulletin board for announcements of the next 
hike. Every club memlier sliould plan to attend.

There seems to be a desire on the part of many 
interested people at Kodak Park for an oppor- 
tunity to increase their store of knowledge by 
means of evening school classes held at the Park. 

Arrangements are being made to provide for 
instruction in a number of subjects during the 
coming fall and winter months. It is possible to 
conduct these cla.sses at such hours that all em- 
ployees on shifts, or day work, may avail themselves 
of the opportunity with the minimum of 
inconvenience. Classes are to be immediately 
before or immediately following the working 

For the convenience of those working shifts, 
classes will be held in the afternoon at the following 
periods: 1:30 to -2:15: -2:45 to 3:30; 3:30 to 4:15 
and 4:15 to 5:00. Day workers" classes will be 
held from 6:00 to 6:45 P. M.. thus allowing time 
to get supper before going to class. By closing 
the period at 6:45 the evening is left free so that 
there will be no conflict between the studies and 
your social engagements and recreation. 

The organization of a class will depend entirely 
upon the number of employees who register, a 
registration of twenty being necessary to form a 
class. Enrollment blanks will be furnished at a 
later date. 

The list of subjects includes: Citizenship, Health, 
.\rithmetic (Fundamental processes and rapid 
calculation). General Mathematics (including work 
in .\lgebra. Geometry and Trigonometry), Business 
English, Blue Print Reading, Principles of Mechan- 
ical Drawing, Factory Cost Keeping Principles, 
Spelling. Chemistry, Physics, History (Industrial). 

The classes will be under the supervision of the 
Industrial Economy Department and will be 
handled by competent and experienced instructors. 

Why not avail yourself of this exceptional 
opportunity to refresh your mind, or to study a 
new subject? 

Velox Department, Koiiak Park 

The Velox Office lost an old and esteemed employee 
in the person of Mary E. Little on Saturday, July 
3rd, when she severed her connection with the 
company. Her jovial disposition and pleasing 
manner won her a large circle of friends at Kodak 

"You are what you think, and not what you 
think vou are." 




Arrangements have practically been completed 
for the K. P. A. A. picnic to be held at Ontario 
Beach Park on Saturday, August Hth. This 
will be a regular old-fashioned basket picnic and 
it is expected that all the members of the Associa- 
tion will be there together with their families, their 
friends, and particularly the children. 

The General Committee in charge of the picnic 
will be composed of the following persons: James 
H. Haste, General Chairman; P. S. Wilcox and 
D. E. Reid, Vice-Chairmen; H. E. Van Derhoef, 
Transportation; R. A. Weber, Publicity; J. H. 
Evanoff, Photographic; F. Gardner, Checking; 
H. H. Tozier, Sports; P. C. Seel. Entertainment; 
W. A. Sawj-er, M.D., First Aid, and R. C. Ruckoldt, 
Director of Events. 

Adequate checking facilities will be provided so 
that you will be able to dispose of your luggage in a 
place where it will be well taken care of until you 
need it, avoiding the necessity of having your 
lunch basket on your arm all day. During the 
afternoon there will be a band concert and a long 
list of sport events will be run off for which many 
valuable prizes will be awarded. A certain section 
of the bath houses will be set aside for the exclusive 
use of our people and there will be music for dancing 
all afternoon and evening. 

A photographic content will be run under the 
auspices of the Kodak Park Camera Club. Anj- 
member of the K. P. A. A. is eligible to compete 
in this contest and prizes will be awarded for the 
best pictm-es submitted as follows: First prize, 
$10.00; second prize, $7.50; third prize, $5.00: fourth 
prize, $2.50. There will be no limit to the number 
of pictures you may submit, nor must they be on 
any definite subject. Any individual, group or 
view will be satisfactory. Write your name and 
the name of your department plainly on the back 
of each picture and send them in to R. A. Weber, 
Building No. 26, before Wednesday noon, August 
18th. Take your Kodak along, and use it. 

Have the family get away to an early start 
in the morning and you can meet them at the 
beach immediately after noon, for lunch. There 
will be extra cars leaving the Park at this hour for 
our accommodation. Don't forget the date, 
August 14th.

With the Spring schedule of the Noon Hour 
Baseball League nearly completed the Legion team 
is still in the lead, liiiving won ten of the thirteen 
games played up to the first of July. The season 
just being finished is remarkable for the enthusiasm 
of both the players and fans. Games have been 
started on time and a most excellent brand of ball 
has been played. An expression of appreciation 
is extended to the players, managers and umpires 
for the sport they provide each noon. The hitting 
of "Chuck" Forstbauer and "Art" Toung has 
l)een exceptionally good, and they have broken up 
almost every game in which they have played.

Watch out for the First Big Event: 


After "Toddy" Diehl, the M. O. twirler, threw 
his arm out against the Hawk-Eye squad, he 
came right back to revenge his 2-1 defeat in the 
opening game at the hands of Kodak Park, by 
giving the Film makers their first taste of being 
in the lost column, the score being 8-1. Toddy 
sent ten of the Parkers back to the bench via the 
"Whiff" route. He also registered the first home 
run of the 1920 season in the game against Folmer- 
Century. Our Manager, Gus Se%-fried, has made 
several changes recently and feels quite confident of 
winning the pennant. He has added the clever 
Ogden boys, Ned and Ted, who always smile and 
astonish the crowd by their brilliant playing. 
The balance of the team is composed of such good 
players as Dutch Irwin, the veteran catcher, 
"Sunny" Wagner, "Al" Wadsworth, "Gob" Ness, 
"Hank" Rohrer, "Johnny" Marcello, "Airaplane" 
Hardy, Culhane, Hill, Caccamise and Gill.

On Saturday afternoon. July 10, the Service 
Department held their first annual picnic at Grand 
View Beach. You would naturally expect this 
department to provide a most complete program 
and they surely lived up to expectations. 

The day was made to order, and the "collation" 
(see program) was cooked ditto and served in first- 
class shape. 

Many picnics have been held by different depart- 
ments and plants of this organization, and all 
have been voted a success, but when it comes to a 
real picnic we will have to take off our hats to the 
Service Department, for from the minute they 
started there was something doing all the time, and 
variety enough for anybody. 

If the Kodak Parkers, or any of the other plants, 
think that they have a cinch on all the grand opera 
talent, they have another think coming because the 
Service Department had a flock of song birds that 
could sure warble some — and they did. 

An invited guest demonstrated his ability on the 
piano, but failed to respond to a second encore 
because he only had two nickels. 

The ball game between the married and the 
single men furnished many thrills, and no one 
dared to kick at any of the decisions of the umpire 
— "there was a reason." 

A full complement of other "athletic" events 
was run off in record time, and only a movie camera 
could have recorded some of them. 

As a diplomatic measure we refrain from publish- 
ing the name of the umpire of the ball game. The 
other officials were: General Chairman, M. Reid; 
Song Leader, Ken. Williams; Announcer, Ben 
Harris; Judges. Perrin and Fenn; Starters, Morris 
Rothschild, Bill Shewanan; Timer, Charlie 

'Twas some picnic! 

The prohibitionists who attended the Service 
Department picnic were rather hard hit when 
Professor Deceivo (Rothschild) performed a miracle 
of changing water into wine. 

Edward Connolly, of the Testing and Packing 
Department, is rejoicing over the arrival of a little 
son, Gerald — June 19th, 19^20 — weighing eight

call her Georgiana.

Department who have been with the company 
since the old Solio days. Their years of service 
total 174 ; they are still going strong and are on 
the job. 

The girls of the Finishing Department were 
much in evidence in the races at the Service Depart- 
ment picnic held at Grand \ie\v Beach. They 
were good sports and took away several prizes. 

Just to let you boys in the Shipping Department

Elmer E. Ferguson, of the Repair Department, 
who lives in Gates next door to Joel Baggs. 
is the proud owner of a steed of uncertain age 
which he claims no one can ride. But Paul O. 
Yanke, also of the Repair Department, says that 
no horse that travels on four legs can unseat him: 
consequently, a party of ex-cow punchers consisting 
of Mr. Yanke, Mr. Hondorf and Mr. Marcille have 
arranged to visit Mr. Ferguson at his farm, when 
\Ir. Yanke will attempt to subdue the animal. 
Side bets of considerable amounts are said to have 
been placed on both the horse and the man. The 
outcome will be reported later.

In recognition of Miss Ward's faithful service and 
of the good will which we of the Mail Department 
feel toward her, she was presented with a ring, 
and our best wishes go with her as she leaves to 
again take up her career as a school teacher. 

It was with very real regret that we saw Edna 
Henry leave the Order Department on July 14th, 
but we can't blame her husband for wanting to 
keep her at home. 

Lois Greenwood returned to her old place in the 
Order Department on July Cth, after a rest cure of 
five months. The only nice thing about having 
her out was the feeling we had when she came in. 

Ted Dunlavey, of the Maintenance Department, 
has returned from Steubenville, Ohio, where he 
spent several weeks on account of ill health. 
Glad to see you back, Ted. 

The employees of the Sixth Floor are missing

Glance up and behold the likeness of Burt 
Mohlar, whom you may find most any time (if 
you're lucky) at his desk on the first floor of the 
Main Office Building Xo. 5. And he has been 
with the company for quite a little period too, for 
June 11th last saw the completion of the 24th year 
of his services with the company. 

When a man stops learning he stops growing — 
and Burt Mohlar realized this from the start. 
In order to fit himself for a bigger job later on he 
attended a night class in electrical engineering at 
Mechanics Institute. 

But he didn't stop at this. He signed up with 
the International Correspondence Schools for a 
"direct-by-raail" course in building construction 
and burned many a quart of midnight oil when 
his friends were either enjoying themselves or 
resting after a day's work. But Burt obtained 
the results that always come from the persistency 
in studying to learn to grow. 

Burt now has charge of the Main Office Main- 
tenance Department, and when there's a partition 
to be torn down or a building to be erected, it's 
Burt's job to get things going and finish the work 
the proper way. Some say that if you're dissatisfied 
with the way the wind is blowing, or if the sun is 
shining too brightly, the best thing to do in either 
case is to see Burt Mohlar, immediately. He'll 
change the conditions to suit everyone. 

The Maintenance Department is also head- 
quarters for all lost and found articles, so whenever 
you find an article that doesn't belong to you, or 
you lose something that's dear to your heart, ask 
Burt to lend vou his assistance. 


The members of the Stock Department Office 
force held their first annual picnic at Island Cottage, 
Saturday. July lOth. The afternoon was well 
taken up with swimming, handball, boating, etc., 
and in the evening a sausage roast was held. 

From the way everyone attacked the eats, it 
looked as if they had been fasting for a week. 

It was agreed that this was the best picnic ever, 
and evervone is looking forward to the next one. 


The Managers of the Olympic Games are over- 
looking some real material for the running events. 
You should have seen Christine Barker and Bill 
German in the 100-yd. dash. Some speed! 

What did "Dad" Howard get at the picnic that 
he could not find the road home f Maybe he 
thinks that all roads end at Island Cottage Hotel. 


.\ surprise party was given by the "Up and 
DoTATi Club" for Earl Answorth at his home in 
Spencerport. All the faces in the pictures are 
familiar to those who work in Kodak Office, and 
an efficient organization we know it is. 

Ben Knight, George Answorth. Fred Hornby, 
.\lbion Knight, David Gillan, Jos Wilson, Earl 
Answorth. Ra^-mond Barton and the wives and 
families of the married men were there. We can't 
find out about the girls of the single fellows. We 
do know, however, that there were 35 quarts of 
ice cream and 14 quarts of fresh strawberries 
consxmied during the dav. 

The man who lets his enthusiasm awake him in 
the morning instead of an alarm clock will never 
fail in business. — Seaton. 






The Billing Department picnic held at Xe^-port, 
on Saturday afternoon, July 17th, was a wonderful 

Dinner was served at the Xe^\port House, at 
which time Arminnia Kyle Fleming rendered a few 
excellent recitations. Place cards, on which were 
written short verses, intended, no doubt, to test 
the picnicers' good nature, were ingeniously pre- 
pared by Anna M. Brady. 

After the dinner two ball games were played. The 
first game was played by two teams of girls, and say, 
my fellow workers, the most calm and dignified 
individual in the world, would have become con- 
vulsed with mirth if he had seen the vigorous 
enthusiasm displayed by these girls. The second 
game played by the men was also one of great 
enthusiasm. The feature plays of this game were 
made by Joe Kick and Guiseppi Ronca. Both 

games were umpired by Bill Croft, who has umpired 
games for Kodak picnicers for the last thirty years. 

Following the ball game, came the following races: 

100 yard dash for girls Martha Schultheiss 

100 yard dash for men Maxwell Goebel 

Wheelbarrow race for men 

Charlie Wulf and Eddie Hilbert 

Three-legged race for girls 

Annette White and Ruth Lloyd 

Peanut race for girls Anna Walentas 

Peanut race for men Sergio Betancourt 

.\fter the races came the dancing. Music was 
furnished by Charles Hersey, Grover Lloyd, Horace 
Lloyd, Carl Graves, Ernest Miles and George 

We wish to thank Grover Lloyd for his efforts 
in making the picnic such a success. 


P R E M O 




The re-organization of the Premo Chib was 
effected and the new Constitution adopted hy a 
vote of its members taken June l(i. 19-20. Under 
the new regime, all social and athletic activities of 
our employees will he financed by the 
Club. The dues, which were formerly 
$2.00 per year, have been reduced to 
$1.50. The Company will allow the 
Club an amount of money equal to 
that paid in by the members, but not 
to exceed $1.00 per employee appear-

The Editor tells us the reason you did not see some 
of your items in the last issue of the Kodak Magazine, 
was due to lack of space and also for other reasons 
connected with the general make-up of the Maga- 
zine. We are holding over many contributions

I wish to express my appreciation through the 
Kodak Magazine to Dr. Sawyer and his staff for the

Saturday afternoon. July lOtli. proved to be very 
eventful to employees of the Premo Works, when 
their picnic, conducted l)y tlie Prenio ("luh. was 
held at East Maplewood. A large number of the 
employees were carried to the grounds in cars owned 
by individuals, others going by means of a Kodak 
truck, enlisted for the occasion. 

Dinner was served in the pavilion and no one 
had to be sent for when it was announced. After 
the final course had been served. Homer Ransom, 
Chairman of the Executive Board, introduced 
John H. McKenny, President, wlio briefly outlined 
the policy of the newly-organized Premo Club. 
He called upon A. A. Ruttan, past President, who 
made an appropriate response. 

ONE OF {)[ ]{ CIKST.-^ 

That the Premo Works is well supplied with 
musical talent was again demonstrated by vocal 
selections rendered by Florence Florack, Marshall 
Lampen and Percy Brown. Two baseball games 
were played, in which the Renners defeated the 
Winters 18 to 2, and the married men defeated the 
single men, 14 to 8. There were other athletic 
events with prize winners as follows: 

lOO-yard dash for men Charles Sullivan 

50-yard dash for women Jennie AValzer 

Frog race for men Raymond Schultz 

Ball throwing into barrel — women, Jennie Walzer 

Ball throwing into barrel — men Louis Blake

Much credit is due to the live executive board of 
the Club, of which Homer Ransom is chairman, 
for the successful manner in which the picnic was 
put over, and the signs are auspicious for big things 
next winter. 


The most popular saying, "When do we eat?" 

Linda Schwing did a toe dance and soon had 
John McKenny up a tree. The act was directed by 
Louis C. Wheeler. 

Perhaps Pauline Schwartz would repeat some of 
her centerfield somersaults at Premo Club meetings 
next winter, if we provide a soft board on which 
she could place her head.

No! The male Camera Workers aren't going to 
take all the baseball honors — not if Blanche Wing 
has a say in the matter! The girls team she has 
organized bids fair to become a large item on the 
list of Recreation Club activities. With George 
Pressley as Coach, and Harry Lambert as Manager, 
we are looking forward to a team worthy of the 
Camera Works organization. 

This is the line-up: Mrs. H. Lambert, p.; Violet 
Wing, c; Blanche Wing, 1st b.; Beatrice Lord, '-2nd 
b.; Helen Stone, 3rd b.; Adele Bentley, s. s.; Julia 
Siveur, r. f.; Ruth Merkel, 1. f.; Harriet Miller, c. f. 

The team is anxious to meet any other industrial 
girls nine. 

Mary Redman, of the Kodak Assembling Depart- 
ment, was the recipient of a shower of useful 
gifts a few days before her marriage, which 
occurred on June 30th. Among the many things 
was a handsome mantel clock and a beautiful cut 
glass water set. 

It is with pleasure that we welcome Harry 
Dengel back in the Woodworking Department. 
He has had a pretty rough time, having been 
five weeks on the sick list. 

The Stock Record Department has l)een the 
target for Cupid's arrows this month. Up to the 
time of writing there are four events in the matri- 
monial race. They are: Albert A. Moshier (6th 
floor vault) to Miss Jessie Fuller. Ray Johnson 
(4th floor vault) to Miss Helen Jones. Leo Morey 
(5th floor vault) to Miss Hazel Perkins. Edmond 
Groeben (5th floor vault) to Miss Martha Watts. 
The male quartet have returned to the fold and 
are still at the old stand. Our congratulations are 
extended to all parties concerned. 

The Foreign Shipping Department held a 
picnic in the town of Irondequoit on July 10th. 
The feature of the picnic was a ball game in which 
Capt. Duffy's team, "The Married Men," suffered 
defeat at the hands of "The Single Men" to the 
extent of 7-4. 

Among the people who visited the Camera 
Works last month was Dr. Jacob Gould Schurman, 
former president of Cornell University. Dr. 
Schurman's visit is particularly interesting to us, 
as he was associated with Mr. Eastman on the 
famous Japan trip of last March. The Doctor is 
touring the country, giving his impressions of Japan 
and advocating the necessity for better understand- 
ing between America and the Far East.

The Screw Machine Department girls had a 
hunch that it was cooler at Charlotte than in 
Rochester, so on Saturday. July 10th, they took 
their bathing suits and hopped a street car to the 
lake shore. After much splashing and ducking 
they cpnsumed sandwiches, pickles, etc. — not 
forgetting the pop — and then hied over to Manitou 
to the dancing pavilion, leaving their baggage in 
the check room at Charlotte. Dancing was fine, 
and they were loathe to leave. Finally, however, 
they returned for their baggage, which, alas, was 
safe under lock and key, and not obtainable until 
the following morning. A little thing as this 
would not disturb such a merry bunch of girls 
and they returned home after a real holiday. 

Three Departments — Stock Record, 
Planning and Production Detail — combined 
in a picnic, which according to the program, was 
A-1. Durand-Eastman Park was the scene of the 
activities, with Messrs. Wilson, Sullivan and 
Stiffler heading up the Committees. A street car 
was chartered, and dinner was served on arrival. 

The Brass Department held its annual picnic 
at Rifle Range. A chicken and fish dinner was 
served, followed by a ball game which was won 
by the Press Department from the Screw Machine. 
Score — 7 to 6. Various sports were on the program. 
The standing jump was won by Chamberlin, 
Screw Machine; 100-yd. dash and also the hop, 
.skip and jump by Goldring, Press Department. 
Three-legged race won by Goldring and Graus. 

George Goldring appears to be quite an athlete, 
for he took the championship away from Will 
Mostyn, who has been the top-notch runner of the 
Brass Department for many years. 

Most of the boys missed their pie, as the cook 
sheared the blanking die when the order was 
about half completed. However, Mr. Love gave 
instructions to run the pie-press, as the boys would 
not mind the burr! 

A thorough good time was spent, in spite of the 
fact that "'Champion" Charlie was heard to remark, 
"A picnic, like the 'Old Gray Mare', ain't what it 
used to be!" See page 34.

The Industrial Relations Department 
enjoyed a good time at Durand-Eastman Park on 
Saturday. July 3rd, when iG of the staff and friends 
did all the usual stunts of picnic making. An 
excellent lunch was served and races were run for 
handsome rewards. The crowd had lots of fun 
being transported in one of the large E. K. Co. 
trucks, and H. Asbrand conducted a repetition of 
his famous Glee Club tactics. Owing to the 
overcast clouds, the ball game was omitted, but 
the folks found plenty of enjoyment in swimming. 
Fred Brehm presented the prizes, and Miss Hondorf 
headed the Eats Committee. See page 3i. 

The Payroll Department had a bully afternoon 
at Summerville, where the "Caraeko" Boys offered 
their cottage as headquarters for the annual picnic. 
A committee compri.sed of Jack WaLsh, Martha 
Yanneck and Aletha Van Keuren looked after the 
commissary and better judges of "eats" could 
not have been procured. After a splendid dinner 
the usual line of sports and a ball game helped to 
get everyone in trim for supper. x\n impromptu 
wrestling match caused great excitement. Ban- 
nister's life was undoubtedly saved by the fact 
that WiLson was not bald-headed I

The Inventory Department motored down 
to that Mecca of merrymakers, Durand-Eastman 
Park, and at least one participant had a regular 
"picnic," incidental to the swimming feature. 
After dinner the company adjourned to the lake 
shore, and, the natural surroundings appealing 
to the men more than the bathing pavilion, several 
males disappeared behind rocks and boulders to 
reappear equipped in "Annette Kellermans." 
Imagine the consternation of Bill Stark when, 
having disported in the waters to his entire satis- 
faction, danced over the sands to his rocky dressing 
room — in order to don his street attire — only to 
discover that someone had taken his trousers! 
Wild was the excitement, and the cry went forth — 
"A barrel, a barrel, my kingdom for a barrel !" 
The trousers not only originally contained the lower 
limbs of Bill, but also a considerable sum of money. 
After beads of perspiration had reduced the weight 
of Bill to almost a negligible quantity, one of the 
ladies admitted that she had "inventoried" the 
garment. After antidotes were administered. Bill 
was again able to breathe as of yore and join in the 
remainder of the picnic events. See page 35. 

The Buffing Department held their picnic on 
July 10th, at Johnson's Grove, where the principal 
events were a buffet lunch and a ball game. Every- 
body had a good time and the committee earned 
for themselves a reputation as picnic specialists. 
John Heaphy was Chairman, and was assisted by 
George Miles, Max Nowack, Gabriel Costanzo and 
Charles Price. See page 37. 

Has anyone in the Folding Brownie Department 
noticed a worried look on Harry Keyes' face.^ 
Well, the fact is that Harry is going to get married 
in September. Courage, Harry, courage. 




Those members of the Gardening Association 
who failed to hear Mr. James A. Wiebens give his 
talk on Bug Funerals, missed a very comprehensive 
lecture, and many good points on how to keep the 
pests away from the crops. Mr. Wiebens told us 
that the first lesson to learn was cleanliness, and 
good housekeeping was as essential in the garden 
as in the home. Sweet ground, well-spaded .soil, 
and freedom from weeds would do much to keep 
the grubs and insects from breeding. 

Owing to the large number of remedies, cures, 
and poisons which the gardener .sees advertised 
or hears about, he is likely to get the idea that 
nothing short of a qualified chemist had any right 
to even try to kill garden pests. .\s a matter of 
fact, it is by no means as complicated as it first 
appears, for, while the numl)er of plant enemies 
are legion, they can be classified in four groups. 

Here are the articles you will need: 

One good spray (preferably" a brass compressed 
air spray). 

One pound of Arsenate of Lead paste. 

One pound of Bordeaux Arsenate. 

One bottle Nicotine or Black Leaf 40. 

One to five pounds tobacco dust. 

(All standard sprays have complete instructions 
for using on the label.) 

The first thing to do is to find out what your 
enemy is — a fungus, a chewing insect, a sucking 
insect, or a grub that attacks underground. 

FUNGUS usually attacks the foliage during wet 
weather or in damp, shady places. The only 
remedy is Bordeau.x. 

CHEWING INSECTS eat up the leaves. 
Remedy: Ar.senate of Lead. 

SUCKING INSECTS puncture the leaf. 
Remedy: Nicotine. 

GRUBS, Cut-worms, or root lice can be controlled 
by spraying with strong tobacco. 

Mr. Wiebens answered several interesting 
problems, and we hope at some future date to have 
the opportunity of hearing him again. 

The Detail & Estlmate Departme.nt is 
noted for the picnics it has, and the one on 
Saturday, July 10, was no exception to the rule. 
An exciting ball game of the "Hams vs. Clams" 
followed an excellent repast prepared by Lucy 
Diesel and Gene Klink. Probably the most 
exciting event was the item on the program entitled 
"The best looking woman and the best looking 
man." The judges, consisting of Grace Kester, 
"Bill" Zimmer and Herb. Spoor, almost came to 
blows over the decision, but finally chose Dorothy 
Goldstein and Oscar Thorpe as their choice of a 
Venus and an Adonis. N^o complaints have as 
yet reached the Camera Works from the Depart- 
ment of Public Nuisances as to the effect of the 
Gazoo Band, led by "Frizzie" performing on a 
Jews-harp. See page 35. 

The Bellows Department held an "Old 
Employees" picnic at Durand-Eastman Park, 
and, although it was strictly a feminine affair, the 
girls had a swell time. After a basket luncheon 
they walked to Sea Breeze and had supper in the 
Hawaiian Tea Rooms. No record is obtainable 
as to the costumes worn, so we are forced to believe 
in the prosaic pose and the Puritan costumes as 
shown in the picture on page 35. 

Only one more month to the famous vegetable 
exhibition of the Camera Works Home Garden 
Association. Get ready to choose your weapons 
for we expect a large number of entries, and the 
fight for first prize will be a regular battle. 

Since the last issue of this magazine went 
to press, the Camera Works has lost an old 
and faithful employee in George P. White, 
who passed away on June -22, at his home at 
197 Averill Ave. Mr. White had worked in 
the Tool and Engineering Departments since 
1905, and his many friends extend sincere 
sympathy to the widow and relatives. 






As announced in the Hawk-Eye section of the July 
issue, our second annual picnic will be held on 
Saturday, August 7th, at Manitou Beach. Good 
weather is the only requirement needed to make 
this day one long to be remembered in the hearts 
of all loyal H. E. A. A. boosters. 

Starting with the strains of the 54th Regimental 
Band at 10:30 A. M., the picnickers will march 
from the plant across Driving Park Avenue bridge 
to Maplewood Park. Here the transportation 
committee will have chartered cars waiting to 
take the throng to Charlotte, where a transfer 
will be made to the Manitou line. With plenty 
of jazz music on board and the singing of Frank A. 
Newman's parodies on popular songs, it is needless 
to say that the famous Hawk-Eye "pep" will be 
working overtime when Manitou Beach is reached. 

Upon arrival everyone will be served with 
good substantial food, selected by the special 
committee on refreshments and of sufficient variety 
to suit the most particular taste. Our band will 
render a program of delightful music diu^ing the 
serving of the "eats." Cafeteria style of service 
will be in vogue and you are requested to present 
the refreshment coupon attached to the outing 

From feeding, the scene of action will shift to the 
staging of the field events arranged under the 
direction of John Vass. This part of the day's 
recreation is as necessary to the success of an 
outing as it is for all of us to ring in on the time 
clock to show " 'em we are there." Surely everyone 
will find an event equal to his or her speed, and while 
we do not look for records to be broken, we feel 
that the spectators will be enthusiastically enter- 
tained and our track efforts brought to the fore. 

For those who prefer dancing to athletic contests, 
permission has been secured from the Manitou 
management to use their large dancing pavilion. 

This arrangement, together with the services of a 
popular dance orchestra, will provide the necessary 
means of enjoyment in the dancing line. 

Lunch in the form of sandwiches and coffee will 
be served during the progress of the afternoon to 
appease appetites whetted by the breezes of Lake 
Ontario. The children, of coiu-se, will be remem- 
bered with the usual "hand outs" of all-day suckers 
and peanuts. 

Immediately following the races, the athletic 
field will be cleared and the regular scheduled 
Eastman Kodak League game between the Main 
Office and our own aspiring champions will be 
played. We surely want to bring home the bacon 
this year. The boys are trying hard to regain the 
honors lost last year, and with everybody pulling 
hard for the team on picnic day, they should 
produce a win. But our "regulars" will not be 
in it with our girls' team coached by "Bill" Schlegel. 
They will show against a local team of girls and 
furnish loads of amusement to young and old. 

The committee in charge has arranged a series 
of events truly to be enjoyed by every employee of 
the Hawk-Eye Works. The charges to cover the 
cost of refreshments, transportation, etc., have 
been placed at the lowest figures possible to enable 
not only our employees to attend, but that they 
may invite family and friends to share their 

The prices are as follows : 

1. Children between the ages of 10 to 16 years, 
.50 cents. All boys and girls over 16 years, full 
fare as adults. 

'i. Adult ticket, full fare to Manitou and return 
to Charlotte, $1.'25. 

3. Auto owners ticket to allow for transportation 
charge exemption, $1 .00. 

The day is not far off. Make arrangements 
for yoiu"self, yoiu" folks, and your friends, and 
be sure to be there, at Manitou, on August 7th.

Hawk-Eye Baseball, the big picnic, and the 
"Moonlight" are getting so much attention these 
warm days that someone is liable to think we are 
doing nothing else in the line of sport. 13ut listen, 
Hawk-Eye, do you play tennis, golf, or even pitch 
the lowly quoit? Tennis is raging, sputtering and 
boiling getting ready to blow up in a tournament. 
We have an eighth of a ton (or thereabouts) of 
tennis agility and sylph-like grace in the person of 
William Roach, our Purchasing Agent. Then 
there are Lawrence Tarnow, Donald Seitz, Harvey 
Putnam, Fred Helbing, John Meerdink, Hyman 
Rosenthal, William Springer, Elmer Ingleby, and 
Clifford Johnson, all of whom are busy trying to 
keep the ball on the opposite side of the net. 

The girls as well are using the courts at noon and 
in the evening. Alice Gears, Josephine Van Lare, 
Helen Loughlin and Olive Kellett are enthusiasts 
and may be counted on for some good tennis, 
provided enough interest is aroused to run a 
tournament for girls. 

All Hawk-Eytes interested in the game are urged 
to notify Harvey Putnam and arrangements will 
be made for entry in the tournament. 

Pitching quoits at noon has become popular 
with a large number of Hawk-Eye men. At 
present there is no organization of the ringers 
but a Quoit League is being formed, and it is hoped 
that each department may be represented. Any 
of the men may play by merely asking John Button 
of the Power Department for the necessary quoits. 

Hawk-Eye is to be well represented in the Kodak 
Golf Tournament, provided the promised pounding 
of the pesky little pill materializes. James Weldon, 
of the Office, is among the choicest sod-busters in 
the city and will lead the Hawk-Eye forces. Wil- 
liam Springer, Paul Lyddon, Clifford Johnson, and 
Fred Von Deben may also be counted on for a hole 
now and then when necessarv. 

There was no moon for the first annual Hawk-Eye 
Moonlight Excursion, nevertheless Wednesday, 
July 14th, will be remembered as one of the most 
enjoyable H. E. A. A. events of the year. 

We have since learned that Rochester's own 
weather man was on his vacation at the time and 
we believe he overlooked the arrangements for 
hanging out the moon prior to his leaving. 

The committee was indeed gratified to see the 
large crowd of employees, relatives and friends 
turn out for the moonless moonlight. Every 
available seat on board being taken by at least 
one Hawk-Eye. 

A jazz orchestra and the Rochester City Quartette 
entertained with musical numbers. 

Lillian Wilson has been transferred from the 
office to take up the direction of girls' activities. 
Miss Wilson, who is perhaps better known as 
"Billie," has a fortunate personality for this type 
of work. She has been cordially welcomed and 
will have the assistance of all Hawk-Eye in her 

The Hawk-Eye Girls' Baseball Team has been 
going great guns, having two wins out of three 
starts to their credit. Bastian Brothers' team has 
twice bowed before the prowess of Coach William 
Schlegel's charges. The team representing the 
Wollensak Optical Company proved that practice 
and experience is what wins games even in girls 

The record to date is as follows: 

Bastian Brothers li Hawk-Eve ii

Olga Behnke. of Stock Room Office, repre- 
sented the Rochester Turn Verein in classic and 
aesthetic dances at the Turner's meet in Syracuse 
during the first week of July. 

Several changes of importance took place at 
Hawk-Eye during July. Joseph T. O'Neill resigned 
as Office Manager, which position he has held for 
many years, to take charge of production. Mr. 
O'Neill is eminently fitted for his new work and 
begins it with the co-operation and good wishes of 
the entire plant. 

Raymond Farmen has taken up the work in the 
office, in Mr. O'Neill's old position. Management 
of office work is not a new experience to Mr. 
Farmen, and he is taking up his new work with the 
solid backing of those with whom he will be 

Ruth K. Gliddon. who for more than a year 
has had charge of girls' work at Hawk-Eye, resigned 
July 15th. Miss Gliddon has made a host of 
friends throughout the plant and her leaving has 
caused sincere regret. The best wishes of every 
good Hawk-Eyte go with her in whatever course 
she follows in the future. 




AMien you went to 

The Hawk-Eye Picnic 

Last August 

"X rode out to 

Island Cottage 

In the open trolley cars. 

'X had a band 

Playing real jazz; 

'X' when you arrived 

You ate "hot dogs" 

'X" drank cold drinks. 

'X right on top of that 

You sang X'ewman's songs 

'X' everybody laughed 

When the fellow grew tall 

"X' threaded the needles; 

'X how you danced! 

'X then you saw the races 

'X none of the

'X prizes were given 

'X Tipple umpired 

A ball game, 

'X' Hawk-Eye beat Kodak Park 

'X you thought the game 

Would last a week, 

'X finallv thev lost

'X had to quit. 

R - E - C - O - L - L - E - C - T? 

We'll say you do! 

Well, folks, we are going to have just such a time. 
Yes, even better, at our Second Annual Picnic to 
be held at Manitou Beach. August 14, lO'iO. 

Reserve this date and give your family or your 
friend a real outing. 

The sympatliy of all the employees is extendeil 
to Joseph Moffet of the Tool Department over the 
death of his mother, and also for the bad accident 
that befell him July 3rd, when he was seriously 
biu-ned by the explosion of a gas stove. He is 
gradually impro\'ing. 

Marion Hergenrother, of the Tool Department, 
is recovering from an injiu-y to one of her hands. 

Esther Meyer has recovered from her recent 
illness and we are glad to have her with us again. 

Mike Gusst, Mounting Department, who under- 
went an operation for tonsilitis, is progressing 

George Diehl, Mounting Department, is now 
comfortably settkd in his new home on Kansas 

We wish to express the sincere sympathy of all 
Hawk-Eye to Harry Althoff, foreman of the Stock 
Room, whose father died Saturday, July 3rd. 

George Kermis is back again, after being laid 
up for two weeks as the result of a fall. 


A win over the Camera Works to the tune of 
11-4 made us feel like Worlds Champions, but the 
feeling didn't stay with us very long. The follow- 
ing week we fell back into second place after the 
7-6 defeat at the hands of Kodak Park. However, 
the team is far from being discom-aged and intends 
to not only reach the top of the ladder, but to stay 

The final in the Kodak Park game was a fine 
exhibition of poor fielding and a grand attempt 
at a "come-back, " but the Folmer-Century game 
was far superior. After giving the F. C. boys 
the game in the second by ragged support of 
Marcille's efforts, the team came back in the 
eighth and put the game on ice, turning in a count 
of nine runs. Final score, 15 to 8. 

Kozlowski resigned from the team after the 
Kodak Park defeat. Manager Brennan at once 
picked "Douber" Marcille to become his hurling 
ace. "Douber's" arm is coming back strong, and 
with Hawk-Eye fielding in the old Hawk-Eye style, 
Marcille ought to show to advantage against our 
opponents. His pitching against the Main Office 
was all that could be asked, allowing five hits and 

Peterson is a big asset to the team as one can 
readily see from the percentages compiled for the 
first five games played. At the bat he shows 
class at .514. while he picks them up at a .978 clip. 

Moore replaced Marcille at first and in the 
Folmer-Century and Main Office games displayed 
his baseball goods to advantage. Moore needs no 
introduction to the majority of Rochester ball fans. 

Felerski continues his strong game at second. 
Leo is a batter to Ije feared by all pitchers for. 
like Babe Ruth, the ball travels when he meets 
it with the willow. It may be added that Leo is 
also some base runner. He bats .313 and fields 
.9i3 for the first third of the schedule. 

Ingleby gave a most favorable imp)ression in the 
Main Office game. His fielding was glorious and 
his hitting timely. "Tng" is pasting them out as 
far as .316. 

Wiedeman can always be counted upon as being 
reliable. His percentages speak for themselves. 
Batting .333. fielding 1000. When the opposing 
players lift the ball into the left field heavens they 
run to first either from force of habit or just for 

Levine in center is another perfect fielder. He's 
so good Harry Murphy has him playing on the 
Kodak All-Stars. Benny should "hit them harder. ' 
and we know he will when he learns more about 
the optical business and finds his batting eye. 

Boehm, our right l)Ower in the gardens, shows 
uji well at the bat. hitting .4H. With more 
experience he will develop into the dependability 
of our other gardeners. 

F O L M E R- 



James M. Kirvan. the "Grand Old Man" of the 
Assembling Department, returned to work July li. 
1920, after a long illness, and from the noise on the 
fifth floor, it was evident that the boys were glad 
to have him back again. 

A daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Frank 
Weining on June 30, 1920. Mr. Weining is em- 
ployed in the Assembling Department. 

The constantly increasing demand for Grafle.\ 
Cameras so taxed our factory facilities that it be- 
came imperative that we should ha\e more floor 
space. It was decided several months ago to 
build an addition on the South side adjoining the 
present building. Ground was broken early in the 
spring. The addition consists of five stories and a 
basement, providing about 50% more floor space, 
which, with up-to-date machinery, will give us an 
ideal factory and enable us to meet the demand. 
The cut below shows our factory in its present 
stage of completion. We expect to occupy it within 
the next few weeks. 


Louis Johnroe of the Assembling Department was 
married June 29, 1920, to Susie LeFevre. After an 
Eastern trip, Mr. and Mrs. Johnroe will reside at 
240 Wilkins Street. 





1. Jeannette Rose Dorsey, daughter of Chas. Dorsey 
i. Norma Crittenden, daughter of A. W. Crittenden 

3. Vincent J. Burroughs, son of Vincent Burroughs 

4. Mildred Wolter, daughter of John A. Wolter 

5. Donald Tyler, son of A. T. Tyler 

Richard Krieke of the AsseinbUng Depart men I 
has been very ill at the General Hospital. We wish 
him a very speedy recovery. 

Otto Wendley of the Metal Department has pur- 
chased a new home on Fulton Avenue. 

A good record is shown by William II. Ilindle, 
our elevator man, who came to work at the Folmer- 
Century Works, January 16, 1908. He has been 
working here continuously since that time and 
hasn't been late in coming to his work once during 
this period. This is an exceptionally fine record. 





OX July loth, with six of the fifteen 
weeks of play concluded, Hawk- 
Eye's slugging team was leading the 
Eastman Kodak Baseball League, just 
a half game ahead of Kodak Park. A 
7 to 6 defeat by Kodak Park on the 
Maplewood diamond on June 19th is 
the only blot on Hawk-Eye's otherwise 
perfect record. Bircher's Kodak Park 
nine sailed smoothly along for four 
straight victories, but struck a snag 
on July 10th at West High, when the 
Main Office players walked oft' with the 
long end of an 8 to 1 score. 

Camera Works is behind the schedule, 
having a tie game with the Main Office, 
and a jiostponed game with Kodak Park 
yet to work off. These two battles may 
cause quite a change in the percentage 
list, for, as yet, no team except Hawk-Eye 
has been able to wliip the Camera outfit. 
With the exception of an 18 to slaughter 

at the hands of Hawk-Eye, the Main 
Office team has been coming fast. The 
addition of the Ogden brothers and 
Rohrer has finished out a speedy infield, 
while Diehl's pitching continues to baffle 
opposing hitters. These four teams, 
at present, look due to fight it out for 
the championship, with the odds just a 
bit in favor of Hawk-Eye, of 
its consistent playing in every game. 

At Folmer-Century and Premo, the 
prospects have not been so bright. In 
several games the Caledonia Avenue team 
has piled up a good lead, only to have 
a weak defense toss the game away again. 
Petroske and Perrin have been showing 
the brand of ball which made Folmer- 
Century pennant contenders last year, 
but the balance of the team has failed 
to hold steady in the pinches. Premo 
has put up a stiff scrap in every start 
but one, but was able to win onlv from 

OUT \r home: 



Folmer-Centiiry in an al^breviated even- 
ing game at West High Field. They 
have been fielding as well as any chib 
in the League, but weak hitting ha> 
prevented their winning games. 

At a meeting of the Executive Com- 
mittee of the League, held Wednesday, 
June 23, a change in the schedule was 
made, under which all games originally 
scheduled for Maplewoorl Park are to be 
transferred to Kodak Park and played 
at 2.00 p. m. Other games will be 
played at 4.00 p. m. at West High and 
Kodak Park in accordance with the 
original program.

That most virulent and infectious of all 

the multitudinous family of microbes — 
the Baseball Bug, has made a rabid attack 
in a new and entirely unexpected (juarter. 
that is, the girls of the Eastnum Kodak 
Company. They are all at it, and if you 
don't believe that a middy and a pair of 
bloomers make the best-looking uniform 
yet invented, come around some night and 
look over one of these new-style twilight 

The Hawk-Eye girls claim to have been 
the first to get started on this latest in- 
vasion of man's sphere, but Kodak Park 
and the Camera Works are close on their 
heels. The Main Office baseball girls 
have the honor of launching the first 
activity of the newly-formed Kodak Office 
Recreation Club. The season is still yoimg 
and about all that's needed to start a 
lively girls' league is some guiding spirit 
to get and keep the scrappers together. 

However, for the benefit of any would- 
be opponents, here are the names of the 
Manager-esses of the four teams already 

Kodak Park Marguerite Ellis 

Camera Works Blanche Wing 

Hawk-Eve Works Lillian Wilson

Coming — Premo and Folnier.^ 


Apparently, Kodak workers are not 
losing any sleep over the (juestion of the 
com]>any tennis title. At any rate, 
only four of them were sufficiently inter- 
ested to enter up for the jjroposed 
tournament. Since this number seems 
hardly adequate, the tournament will be 
allowed to remain in the well-known 
'"status (|U()" for the present, at least. 


p. S. -If four hardy entrants 
want to get together aufl frame a friendly 
set of doubles some time, the Editor will 
be glad to play the part of "Mr. Fix-It." 




DROPPING five out of their first six 
games, Manager Harry JVIurphy's 
All-Kodaks made a discouraging start in 
their first season in the semi-pro. field. 
After a smashing win over the Knights 
of Columbus team to start oft' the vear. 

the local players have dropped home 
games to the Norwich Clothes and the 
Hewitt's, Buffalo City champions, while 
their holiday road trip over July 4th, 
oth and 6th, cost them three more — one 
at the hands of the Brown-Lipe-Chapin 
Company, industrial champions of Syra- 
cuse, and two from the St. Regis Athletic 
Club, at Deferiet, N. Y. 

A couple of new players have strength- 
ened the Big Team line-up considerably, 
and a fair proportion of the coming- 
games ought to be reported as victories. 
All the pitchers — Forstbauer, Rohrer and 
Pressley — have shown good stuff, and 
wuth a little tighter defense and hitting 
in the pinches, the All-Kodaks will be 
able to hold their own against the best 
in the section. 

Business Manager Goodridge had two 
hard return games booked at Kodak 
Park for the final two Sundays of July 
with the Brown-Lipe-Chapin Company 
of Syracuse and the Knights of Colum- 
l)us. The August schedule calls for a 
game with the Norwich Clothes on August 
1st at Kodak Park, and a trip to Painted 
Post on August 22nd to play the Inger- 
soll-Rand Company team.

Singles in the Camera Works tennis 
tournament have just been completed, 
and have brought to light several fast 
players. These winners have been picked 
for the Camera Works Tennis Team which 
challenges any of the other branches for 
matches. Harold Marson is Manager of 
the team, with Joseph Dineen, Ralph 
Welch, William Fitzgerald, Orville 
Gilman, George Goldring, and Charles 
Perrine as players. Substitutes are Jack 
White, Al Weltzer and James Burdett. 




The baseball and soccer players and 
golf and tennis enthusiasts may fight it 
out for whatever laurels there be. It 
remains for Camera Works to produce an 
entirely different athletic team — swim- 
ming, which boldly flings its challenge in 
the face of the other plants, hankering, as 
it were, for a chance to show its prowess. 

The Camera Works has a "nifty" 
bunch of plungers, di\'ers and speed men. 
They would like to meet similar teams 
from the other plants, in both individual 
events and relays. The lead-off man is 
evidently too good to reveal. The 

Camera Workers choose to designate him 
by that "meaningless" or "meaningful" 
title "John Doe." They call him a dark 
horse and they mean to keep him dark 
until some other plant puts up a compet- 
ing team. The other Camera Works fish

(Note for Picnic Committees. Does 
this offer you any help on that entertain- 
ment program that's been worrying you?) 


A goodly number of aspirants are out 
after that Kodak golf crown. Some 
twenty devotees of the Scotch pastime 
have entered for the tournament sug- 
gested in the July number of the Kodak 
Magazine. The Editor even went so far 
as to unearth his long lost clubs and to 
invest in some new balls, getting all set 
for Sundav — and then it rained. 

If the length of the entry list is any 
criterion, the Camera Works ought to 
stand a good chance to walk off with the 
prize. Headed by "Jack" Robertson, the 
Camera Works squad includes .seven con- 
testants: R. Heaphy, A. Heaphy, J. 
Heaphy, J. Campbell, G. Millspaugh, G. 
Henry, G. McMurray. Hawk-Eye has 
the next largest squad with James Weldon, 
William Springer, Clifford Johnson, F. H. 
A^on Deben, Paul Lyddon and Wilbur 
Woodams. Main Office entries include 
F. O. Strowger, S. B. Hord, Wm. E. 
Silsby and John W^ Newton. Premo is 
represented by Ralph K. Hutchings and 
Robert Broxholm. Ed. Goodridge is car- 
rying the whole weight of the Kodak 
Park reputation on his shoulders, being 
the only entrant for that plant. Folmer- 
Century failed to show any golf 

The tournament will be played oft' in 
the course of the next week or two, the 
results being announced in the September 
number of the Magazine.

Bv "Murph" 


The team made a 6ne showing at Syracuse, losing 
.5 to 0, through lack of hitting. 

In the evening, the boys took a trip to Long 
Branch, a summer resort, but Manager Murphy 
ordered them all to return at dusk, as it was getting 
near Schlicht's bed-time. 

A large nunil)er of fouls went over into the street. 
When Kivell didn't appear xmtil 0.30 — and with a 
good appetite — well, we all know how "Charlie" 
likes baseballs. Not long ago, he dropped one 
while boarding a train at Batavia, and missed the 
train. They had to bring him into Perry on a 
hand-car. He calls them apples. Charles, kindly 
let us know when the apple-sauce will be ready. 

The boys dropped two hard-fought contests at 
Deferiet, 7 to 3 and 3 to 2. Forstbauer pitched 
the Sunday game, during which constant rain made 
proper handling of the Ijall out of the question. 
Levine's hard-hit ball to right went for a homer. 

The following day, witii Rohrer pitching beauti- 
ful ball, the Kodak's led, 1 to 0, up to the seventh. 
Levine made the circuit on another clout to right. 
The fans began yelling at the home team for action, 
telling them to "Kodak As You Go." The St 
Regis boys responded nobly, pushing over three runs 
to sew up the game. 

Kodak had filled tiie bases in the ninth with two 
out, when six Kodak j^layers started to leave the 
field. The L^mpire stopped play, called them back 
to the bench, and asked them if they didn't want 
to win. One of them replied: "How can we? Look 
who's batting!" 

Yoder claimed that if he hadn't lost the handle 
on his club, making it hard to reach a curve ball 
with a short stick, things would have been different. 

Boys, page Pat Hurley! 

Pat Hurley is the real baseball fan of Deferiet. 
He backed the Kodaks to the extent of $'■2. He asked 
Yoder if he was a Camera W'orker. When Lee 
said: "Yes," Pat replied: "From the way you 
reach, I thought you worked on a mail-train." 

Bircher started some comedy, whereupon 
remarked: "If your team is anything like 
Cameras thev make, it's a dandv." 


Keep your eye on Hawk-Eye. Those boys are 
playing ball. With Mort Fox in the line-up, they 
look like winners. 

Manager Yoder's Champions are putting up a 
strong game. This team is particularly well sup- 
plied with good players. As we all know, they're 
strong finishers. 

Kodak Park has been a big surprise. Manager 
Bircher has built a fast club out of last year's tail- 
enders. This team, like Camera W^orks, is well 
supplied with good material. 

Gus Sej-fried's Main Office bunch is looking much 
better than at the start of the season. With the 
pitching "Toddy" Diehl has been serving up, and the 
good all-around work of "Ned" Ogden and "Speed" 
Wagner, this gang is a mighty hard team to beat. 

Premo has a well-balanced club, and with the 
pitching of "Lefty" Serth is capable of causing the 
leaders a lot of trouble. 

Folmer-Century got away to a bad start. How- 
ever, if they can add a good pitcher, they ought to 
come fast, for "Pat" Petroske and his mates swing 
a wicked stick. 

"Get a hit for 'Little Dutch' " is the Main Office 
war-cry these days. And "Dutch" is hitting "em, 
too, to the tune of .316.

Mr. Eastman, in company with a number of other representative 
American business men, recently paid a visit to Japan. 

Tliey went by invitation from a number of Jaj)anese associations to 
discuss informally the many questions affecting the business relations of 
the two countries. 


Vol. I 



Xo. 4 


MR. EASTMAN has returned 
from Japan with many inter- 
esting impressions of that 
country. He made the visit as a member 
of a small party of representative 
American financiers, bankers and business 
men, invited by Japanese associations 
to cross the pond and discuss informally 
many questions affecting the business 
relations of the two countries. 

The party was given every oppor- 
tunity, through open discussion in 
conference and travel, to study at first 
hand many phases of Japanese life — 
industrial, commercial, social and official. 
Their hosts, too, men of prominence in 
Japan, many of them educated in Ameri- 
can colleges, for the most part spoke 
English quite fluently, so that they were 
able to converse freely with their guests 
on a multitude of topics and impart a 
great deal of valualile information. ]\Iuch 
of this information Mr. Eastman has 
already imparted to the daily papers 
in a number of interviews, and his sound 
views on political, social, economic and 
general trade conditions there have no 
doubt already been read with interest 
by readers of the Kodak Magazine. 

That the door of opportunity is open 
wide for a rich trade l)etwecn this c-ountry 
and Japan, Mr. Eastman is firmly 
convinced. Japan needs the American 
market — what would we do without 
her silks, for instance? — needs American 
capital, needs machinery and even 
American inventive genius for her own 
industrial development. Just as we, 
on our side, need the Japanese market. 

which, as Mr. Eastman points out, is a 
very large and important one. 

As a basis for closer reciprocal business 
relations, Japan wants American friend- 
ship; wants above all things to allay that 
suspicion with which we sometimes 
regard her. And her object in inviting 
into friendly conference representative 
business and financial men of both 
countries, was to clear up, if possible, 
the atmosphere of misunderstanding and 
open the way for the continuance of the 
ancient friendly relations. The Jajjanese 
who sat at the conference were men 
of keen understanding and vision, 
interested only in the legitimate develop- 
ment of their country and thoroughly 
alive to the direction in which Ja{)anese 
development lies. 

Of the friendly sentiment of Japan 
toward this country, the American party 
were never left in doubt. Nothing could 
have exceeded the welcome extended 
to them wherever they went. From 
the moment the party embarked at 
Seattle on April 10, until its return to 
San Francisco on May 31, every want 
seemed to be anticipated. If the 
morning hours of their stay were devoted, 
with characteristic Japanese thorough- 
ness, to the serious business of the 
conference, the rest of the day was, with 
equal thoroughness, devoted to sight 
seeing and social entertainment. 

Mr. Eastman was himself the guest 
of Baron Mitsui (a sort of Japanese 
Pierpont Morgan — with extensive finan- 
cial and ])usiness interests in his country), 
at a villa, built in European style, and 


A group of our Japanese brethren grouped about Mr. Eastman on the occasion of his recent visit to Japan. This picture was 
takenjustbeforethe banquet tendered Mr. Eastman by Messrs. Asanuma and Messrs. Kuwada, to which all dealers were invited. 
Mr. Asanuma, in European clothes, is on Mr. Eastman's left, and Mr. Kuwada immediately in front of him. 

kept exclusively for the entertainment 
of distinguished foreign guests. 

Of all the hospitality which Mr. 
Eastman experienced in Japan, however, 
none delighted him more than the 
personal hospitality extended to him 
by the photographic dealers. That the 
dealers were keenly interested in the 
visit of the Kodak inventor and head 
of the world's greatest photographic 
industry, was shown in every way. 
Every courtesy they could show a 
distinguished guest was extended. They 
looked on the visit as an honor and 
honored it as such. Mr. Eastman, on 
his side, was equally delighted in meeting 
his photographic kinsmen of the Orient. 

Time permitted him to accept only 
two banquets at their hands, but both 
these were thoroughly congenial and 
brilliant affairs. One of these was 
tendered by Messrs. Konishi, of Tokio, 
the other jointly by Messrs. Asanuma, 
of Tokio, and Messrs. Kuwada, of Osaka. 
To both banquets, however, all other 
dealers were thoughtfully invited. Our 

photographs are incidents of these 
occasions. The distinguished courteous 
Japanese gentleman in the act of shaking 
hands with Mr. Eastman is Mr. Konishi, 
head of the firm of R. Konishi & Sons, 
one of the leading dealers in Japan. 

In the group picture, on Mr. Eastman's 
left, is Mr. Asanuma, the oldest dealer 
there, who began business in 1875, five 
years before Mr. Eastman himself. In 
front of him is Mr. Kuwada, of Osaka, 
the leading dealer in that city, and also 
one of the largest in Japan. The other 
gentlemen in European clothes, Mr. 
Howard Small and Mr. A. D. Parker, 
need no introduction to Kodak readers. 

The photographic situation in Japan 
naturally interested Mr. Eastman very 
keenly. What time he could snatch 
from the set-piece program arranged 
for the party, was spent in visiting 
dealers' shops and photographers' studios. 
Not all, of course, for in Tokio and 
vic'inity alone there are between six and 
seven hundred studios. This will give 
some idea of the extent to which pro- 


fessional photography is practiced in 
that country. 

The story of the amateur trade is 
told in the busy shops of the dealers 
there, in the Kodak hal>it to which, 
Mr. Eastman observed, the Japanese 
are almost as addicted as ourselves, and 
in the figures in one of Mr. Ames' big 
books. These figures show that the 
Japanese trade is twenty-five times in 
volume what it was ten years ago. It 
coujd be written in five figures then — 
now it takes seven — fairly sturdy ones, 
at that. They also show that the demand 
for amateur supplies has increased faster 
in Japan than in any other country in 
the world for the same period. 

Another peculiarity about the Jap- 
anese is that they want the best of 
everything; the better grades of Kodaks, 
the best lenses money can buy, and one 
order we saw called for 200 Graflex 
cameras of one type. 

Somebody has said that the next 
best thing to originality is the ability 
to assimilate the ideas of others. The 
Japanese, in Mr. Eastman's opinion, 
have this ability to the point of genius. 
Perhaps it is this ability to recognize 
and adopt the best the Western World 
has to offer, that has made her the 
powerful nation she is today. Her army 
she patterned after Germany, her navy 
after England, and along the lines of 
industrial development she is taking her 
pattern from America. 

As an example of her progressiveness 
along photographic lines, before and 
during the war. Seed and Stanley Plates 
were used extensively. Mr. Eastman, 
however, found them very enthusiastic 
over Portrait Film, both for its relief 
from transportation difficulties, and for 
its superior quality. 

In the studios, Artura has no competi- 
tion, and is used exclusively by all the

leading photographers for their high 
grade work. It's the same story there,

often orders for special equipment, 
regardless of additional cost. 

Japanese business is handled entirely 
from Rochester, shipments being made 
via San Francisco, Seattle, Tacoma and 
Vancouver. Shipments are also made 
from New York via Panama, especially 
large and bulky shipments of amateur 

The ports of entry in Japan are Yoko- 

hama and Kobe, the former for Tokio 
and the latter for Osaka. Tokio and 
Osaka are the great commercial cities of 
Japan, Osaka being also the great 
manufacturing center. 

The dealers already mentioned, 
Asanuma & Co., Tokio; S. Kuwada & 
Sons, Osaka, and R. Konishi & Sons, 
Tokio, not only do a very large retail 
trade in their respective cities, but act 
as distributing houses for smaller dealers 
throughout the country.

THE machinery in the large factory 
was stilh The men, after finishing 
their midday meal, had formed into little 
groups in the factory lunch room to 
gossip, or to dispose of the problems of 
the day according to their own particular 

The superintendent was sitting at one 
of the tables idly watching the smoke 
rise from his pijje. Nearby two men 
were talking earnestly, and, as their 
conversation waxed warmer their raised 
voices brought these words plainly to 
the superintendent's ears: 

"It's no use trying to get ahead," 
said one. "There's no chance for a man 
these days. Just think where I would be 
now if I had been treated fair. I've 
been here four years and the other day 
when they wanted a foreman to fill Jim's 
shoes they picked Foster. Ain't I just 
as good as he.* Sure, I've been here 
twice as long and ought to have the job." 

The superintendent walked over to the 
men slowly and stopped in front of tiiem. 

"Boys," he said, "I couldn't help hear- 
ing what you've been discussing and 
while I don't want to deliver any sermon, 
I'm going to tell you briefly about 
something that happened to me." 

"I came to these works ten years ago 
as a machine hand. I learned the ropes 
a little by keeping my eyes and ears on 
the job every minute for three years. 
Then the foreman left and seeing a chance 
I applied for the job. And did I get it? 
No. Another man went over my head 
and got the job. But, this particular 
disap])ointment was much better for 
me than the foreman's job ever could 
have been. I made up my mind that 
I'd have to do something worth while to 
make myself worthy of promotion. 

"Then, I buckled dow^n to work. Five 
nights a week I went to school where I 
learned about electrical and steam 
engineering, shop practice and drafting 
and things that I needed to know in my 
line. ]Many a time I was tempted to 
give it up, for it was hard going after 
working all day in the shop, but I still 
had my eye on the foreman's job, so I 
kept on. Often the boys would call me a 
"fool" for devoting all my evenings a 
week to study as I did. 

"After two years had passed the 
foreman's job was again open. I didn't 
ask for it this time. They gave it to 
me. I'm not telling you this as a boast, 
but I'm superintendent now just because 
I was "fool" enough to buckle down — 
study and learn. 

"Now, boys, I want to ask your pardon 
for having butted in on your little 
discussion, l)ut you well know that I 
couldn't refrain from telling you about 
myself, after I heard what you were 
talking al^out." 

Just then the whistle blew and the two 
men "buckled down" to their jobs with 
a "can't keep me from gettin' ahead" 
determination to do as the superintendent 
and many other men higher up around 
them did — to apply themselves to their 
jobs — nothing else. 



To get ahead you have to plan ahead, 
so it pays us to keep as well posted as 
possible on future conditions. 

The general business situation has 
undergone but little change in the last 
month and there is no immediate prospect 
of lower prices, although there is a 
tendency in that direction. 

Crops generally have been good; the 
wheat crop in the aggregate will probably 
exceed 850,000,000 bushels; corn is com- 
ing along in fine shape; and the potato 
yield promises to be larger than last 

Cotton promises the largest yield 
since the record crop of 1914. The price 
of sugar is on the down grade and the 
crop prospect is good. Grain, coal, and 
many other commodities would be lower 
if the transportation facilities were better, 
but this hindrance is being gradually 

The Liberty Bond market is showing 
improvement and there has been a strong 
buying by individuals for investment. 

The National City Bank, to whom 
we are indebted for this statement, 
remarks in its last review: "We have 
pointed out the fallacy of the argument 
that everybody should have his income 
increased in time of scarcity in order to 
enable him to buy as much of everything 
as he was accustomed to buy when no 
scarcity existed. The thing cannot be 
done because the increase of income 
does not increase thfe supply of goods. 
There is no hope of relief from the 
shortage of goods, or from high prices, 
or the chatter about profiteering until 
the people understand that the only 
remedy is in producing goods enough to 
go around." 

To sum up the situation: prospects all 
around are brighter; workers now realize 
that increased production is the only 
remedy, and in our case you are respond- 
ing nobly. 

Don't expect a return to pre-war 
prices, but don't worry about shortages; 
put away every dollar you can for the 

day when it will have greater purchasing 
power; avoid extravagant purchases; that 
is the solution of the problem. 


If the personal items in the Kodak 
Magazine are a basis upon which to 
judge, the next census will show a material 
increase in the population of Rochester. 

Now just 'sposing there was a most 
welcome new arrival in your family 
recently, there is one highly important 
duty you owe to him, or her, or them, as 
the case may be — that is, make sure that 
the birth is properly recorded with the 
local health authorities. 

Has your doctor registered your baby? 

Here are some of the reasons why 
births should be recorded: 

To establish identity; to prove na- 
tionality; to prove legitimacy; to show 
when the child has the right to enter 
school; to show when the child has the 
right to seek employment under the 
child-labor law; to establish the right 
of inheritance to property; to establish 
liability to military duty, as well as 
exemption therefrom; to establish the 
right to vote; to qualify to hold title to, 
and to buy or sell real estate; to establish 
the right to hold public ofiice; to prove 
the age at which the marriage contract 
may be entered into; to make possible 
statistical studies of health conditions. 

Fill out this memorandum and preserve 
it for your baby. It may save him much 
time, money and inconvenience.

Mister Cani'ra, Mister Cam'ra, 
How did your garden grow? 

Were yours prize onions, beans, and corn? 
Did the judges tell you so? 

ONCE more the judges of the Camera 
Works Home Gardeners Association 
have made their annual rounds of 
inspection, and, for the third successive 
time, two of the old stand-bys, Frank 
O'Grady and Elbert VanDuser, came 
through with prizes. O'Grady, whose 
record shows first prize in 1918, and a 
Special Cup for perfect lay-out and 
upkeep in 1919, repeated his achievement 
of two years ago and took top honors. 

*This story belongs, by rights, in the Camera 
^Yo^ks section, but the efforts of the Camera Works 
Home Gardeners Association have been so successful 
and their work so important that we are featuring 
it here. 

The Editor. 

Elbert VanDuser, last year's "champ," 
equalled his 1918 record and pulled 
through in third place. The second 
prize for 19^0 was won by Frank Holman, 
whose large garden, although heavily 
shaded and largely on virgin soil, showed 
remarkable production. 

Perhaps you've thought that the life 
of a garden inspector was one continuous 
round of Sybarite ease and luxury. If 
so, you're wrong — dead wrong. To see 
them setting off in a nifty gas-buggy 
with nothing to do but ride around the 
city and look at potatoes and bugs and 
cabbages and rocks looked like a cinch — 
but, vou should have heard the argu- 





mentsi To begin with, right off the bat, 
the inspection committee inchided 
"CharUe" Rogers, "Hal" Baldwin, Harry 
Russell, "Herb" Thorpe, Horace Black- 
well, Elbert VanDiiser, "Ernie" Leroux, 
"Bill" Ryan, and C. W. Reid. Now, if 
you know these inspectors, you don't 
need to be told that none of them are 
exactly in the pacifist class. Conse- 
cjuently, when it came to figuring out 
just how many points Mr. So-and-So's 
garden deserved, there was considerable 
difference of opinion. 

Add to all this the fact that there 
were fifty-nine gardens entered in the 
contest, and you will understand why 
it took five days and a half for the judges 
to make the entire rounds and pick the 
winners. They finally narrowed it down 
to eight of the best, and went over these 
eight again before making the decision. 
While they were at it, too, they covered 
about 150 miles of city pavement. 

Each judge was sui)plied with a com- 
putation sheet on whicli to rate the 
gardens he insjjected. These gardens 
were numberetl, and the inspector knew 
the garden by its number rather than 
by the name of the owner. This is the 
way the record looked:

THE attention of the writer has been 
called several times recently to the ex- 
periences of friends in alleged x-ray labora- 

It is, of course, understood that in the 
hands of competent, trained medical ex- 
perts or "roentgenologists," x-rays are 
rapidly becoming of indispensable value 
in the diagnosis of diseases, but it is, alas, 
also true that the lack of knowledge on 
the part of the average person of the possi- 
bilities of x-ray science has been played 
upon by certain conscienceless organiza- 

X-rays, since their discovery by Roent- 
gen in 1895, have been enclosed in an 
atmosphere of mystery to the average lay- 
man; therefore it might be of interest to 
some, and a protection to a few, to know 
some of the possibilities of their use. 

X-rays are merely a form of radiation, 
very similar to light. They differ from 
light in that they are not visible and in 
that they will penetrate substances which 
are not at all transparent to ordinary 
light. This does not mean, however, that 
the substances penetrated are seen by 
the observer in their natural perspective 
and colors. Far from it. X-rays pene- 
trate substances in proportion to the den- 
sity of the materials or "elements" in 
them; hence they rather easily penetrate 
flesh, which is made up of light elements 
like carbon, hydrogen and oxygen, but do 
not so readily penetrate bones, which in- 
clude in their composition heavy elements 
such as potassium and calcium. 

In making an x-ray picture of the hand, 
then, a photographic plate, in a light-tight 
holder, is put just under the hand. X-rays 
affect a plate — through the holder — quite 
like light, and when the negative is devel- 
oped an outline of the bones is obtained. 

By x-ray photography, then, we can 
only show "shadow' ' pictures of the parts 
penetrated by x-rays. We are concerned 
with interpreting results, which are dis- 
played as outlines. By no system of pre- 
sent-day x-ray application can the entire 

structure of the human body be seen as 
such. It is logical to reason, then, that the 
study of the shadow pictures obtained in 
x-ray photography is a very special phase 
of medical practice, requiring considerable 
x-ray experience and a knowledge of an- 
atomy to intelligently handle, and in such 
difficult cases as stomach or intestinal 
disturbances helpful diagnosis can only 
come after a thorough examination of a 
series of shadow negatives. 

Many sick people have been led to 
believe that x-ray specialists could actu- 
ally see into their bodily structure and 
watch the organs function the same as 
though they were laid open on an operat- 
ing table. This is absolutely wrong. Vis- 
ual examination by x-rays is made in this 
way: — X-rays cause certain chemicals to 
emit light, or fluoresce. Calcium tung- 
state is such a chemical compound. What 
is known in medical science as a "fluoro- 
scopic screen' ' is made by coating a layer 
of this compound on a piece of cardboard. 
When this sheet is put in place of a photo- 
graphic plate, it lights up visually in pro- 
portion to the quantity of x-rays striking 
it; hence when the hand, for example, is 
held between the x-ray tube and the screen 
the rays going through the bones are 
stopped more than those going through 
the flesh, and the bones appear dark on a 
bright background. The image seen is 
merely a projection of x-rays through the 
hand and is in no sense a picture of the 
hand. When a patient stands before such 
a screen, the part examined, if covered at 
all, must be clothed only in some thin 
material free from buttons or other dense 
materials which would stop the x-rays. 
To attempt a visual examination of a 
man's chest covered with a woolen coat 
and vest would be absurd. It would be 
almost equally as absurd to attempt to 
diagnose diseases by merely standing a 
patient before a fluoroscopic screen with- 
out an added examination using plates or 
films; that is, of course, except in cases 
like broken bones or where metallic bodies 



are embedded. In these cases the shadows 
are usually very distinct and certain. 

It is refreshing to know, however, that 
the section of the medical profession which 
is specializing in x-ray diagnosis is indeed 
making wonderful strides in applying these 
principles. These specialists have dev^elop- 
ed a science for interpreting the " shadow" 
negatives which is daily becoming more 
exact, and hence more helpful to the pub- 
lic. Furthermore, manufacturers have 
made x-ray apparatus so simple that more 
and more physicians are studying their 
usefulness and bringing their benefits in 
wider measure to the general public. It is 
to such a specialist that one should go 
when in need of x-ray diagnosis. It won't 
cost any more in dollars and cents in the 
end, and if x-rays can give any help 
you will get it. 

In conclusion, it is my own personal 
opinion that it is best to be very careful 
about patronizing any of the physicians 
or "commercial clinics" who advertise in 
the newspapers as being competent to 
make diagnoses with x-rays. I am assured 
by Dr. Sawyer that our own Medical De- 
partment will be glad at all times to furn- 
ish to us names of both competent x-ray 
examiners and medical specialists.

A "C. Q. D." 

If you had to hunt for a house or a flat 
last spring you discovered that they 
were just about as scarce as hen's teeth. 

The housing situation has not im- 
proved; meanwhile we have many new 
employees, and some old ones seeking 
quarters for the winter. 

You can help relieve the situation; 
if you hear that any iiouse or flat is likely 
to be for rent, please telephone Miss 
Crafts or Miss Gill, Industrial Relations 
Department, Main Office. If you wait 
until the house is placarded, or advertised, 
it will, in most cases, be too late. 


Business experts, after studying em- 
ployees in relation to efficiency, claim 
that in most firms of any size there are 
three kinds of men: ten per cent, who 
help, eighty per cent, who are a habit, 
and ten per cent, who are a hindrance. 

First, the man who helps. He is the 
employee who takes a keen interest in 
the whole concern. He is glad when the 
company has lots of business. He really 
feels that he is part of the firm. He 
often does more than is expected of him. 
He tries to help. He puts in his spare 
time qualifying for a better job. When 
he is given a job to do, he does not enlarge 
on the difficulty or impossibility of it, 
but goes ahead and puts it over in a 
real satisfactory manner, for that which 
satisfies him usually satisfies his employer. 

Second, the man who is a habit. He 
is a good worker, takes more or less 
interest in his job, but seldom worries 
himself in the least about the company 
generally. He knows no other job than 
his own, for he has made it a habit. 
He hates to be shifted from one job to 
another. Altogether he is a good, useful 
man, but keeps himseli from promotion — 
he has nailed himself to a routine. 

And now for the third man — the man 
who is a hindrance. This fellow hates 
his job and dislikes his foreman. He 
does not want to work and almost feels 
he has a grievance against the company 
for giving him a chance to earn his 
living. He is strong on objecting; great 
on refusing. He is against every new 
change and improvement. He hinders. 
He is a man who can never be promoted 
and sometimes has to be discharged, no 
matter where he may work. 

Has this classification of workers ever 
struck you in this light, fellow Kodaker? 
If so, in what class would you place 
yourself? In what class do you think 
our employers place us? 

Tack yourself on the analysis sheet! 

Where do you land?

It might liave l)een the rity assessors or a group 
of real estate buyers, but it was not. It was the 
Garden Inspection Committee. 

"Oh, Mother-r-r, liere's some men who want to 
see daddy's garden." Mother comes running to 
the door, and, sure enough, the committee was 
there with big books and long pencils, and the 
expectancy of a 100 per cent, garden floating before 
their eyes. 

"Go right back of the house, gentlemen. You'll 
find that my husband (or son) has worked very 
hard, and he's done every bit of it himself." First 
went the children, then the committee, and then 
Mother, all anxious to find out the result of father's 

We usually made a bee line for the cabbage. 
The prevailing conditions affecting this vegetable 
were certainly not 100 per cent. The cabbage 
worms have spoiled every garden! There is always 
something of a mystery about destructive bugs, and 
it seems illogical that nature should produce whole- 
some things, only to be made unwholesome by 
another of her products. However, don't get the 

impression that the bugs and worm.s were all we saw. 
There were some mighty fine vegetables of some 
sort in almost every garden. It really makes hard 
work of judging when one has to look at rows of 
succulent carrots and juicy beets, to say nothing 
of tomatoes and beans, just crying to be eaten. 

This year we had a little different arrangement 
regarding the Inspection Committee. Instead of a 
permanent committee of three — as in previous years 
— there was an alternating one of six. The idea 
was to get an entirely fresh view point from each 
committeeman — and we got it! Several gardens 
required great precision of judgment. Ask E. 
Van Duser, or Clarence Reid, or Horace Blackwell, 
or Chas. Russell, and then, if you don't get an idea 
as to what we run up against, ask Charlie Rogers. 
Charles was with us, and believe me, he is some cute 
little inspector. 

There were .59 gardens entered in the contest, 
and the judging consumed five and one-half days 
of time and about 1.50 miles of travel. After 
carefully figuring up the points, and comparing 
one entrv with another in the four distinct classes 




of the contest, we were uiideeided as to whom to 
award prizes. In eonseciuence of this, we called in 
the expert opinion of Hal IJaldwin and rejudged the 
eifiht highest in points. Talk ahout sj)littin^ hairs! 
We had the Athletic Editor of the Kodak Mayazinr 
with ns tt> umpire any fifjhts tliat mifiht rx-cur. 
It is |)resunie(l that the <;arden ins])ection will \>v 
"written up"" in the general .section. Whatever 
the writer .says about the gardens, he will convey 
only an idea of the beauty which really exists in a 
well laid out an<l well kept productive vegetable 

The final eight competitors, arranged 
point of merit, are as follows: 

order of 

98 plus 

94 plus 
89 plus

The c'ontest would have run even closer had the 
competitors paid more attention to cultivation and 
lay-out. Most of the missing points were lost 
because of these two omi.ssions. Next year plan 
your garden on paper fir.sf; also make your rows 
continuous, running north and south. Don't be 
di.scouraged because you were not in the final number 
of competitors. Figure on being there next year, 
and plan ahead — it pays.

By George Powers 

Looking back to the days of my childhood I 
think I was always a sort of a gardener. I know 
I always helped in the garden then. Still, it was 
not until later years when the garden was my owti 
that my real interest was awakened, and each year 
that interest has grown stronger and stronger until 
now my garden is as much a part of my life as each 
returning season. 

I consider the time spent in my garden as my 
most profitable investment. Those first early 
spring days when I scan the drying earth and decide 
about how soon I can begin to work the ground, 
are days spent out in the fresh air and sunshine. 
Each moment so spent returns double interest. 


The hours I spend in the evening in my garden are 
my tonic for the long days spent in the shop, and 
the benefits I have gained from having fresh gath- 
ered vegetables to place on my table cannot be 
counted. My garden is always a wonder to me 
educationally. Each year nature has surprises in 
store for me, and, never until my last crop is in, 
do I know just what she has been doing. She has 
taught me lessons in patience, faithfulness, and 
vigilance. My garden is also a benefit to me 
financially. I nearly all my winter \-egetables, 
and, together with my orchard, my fruit and 
vegetable cellar, is a goodly thing to look at about 
Christmas time. I have also captured a couple of 
prizes on my vegetables in the Camera Works 
Garden Exhibit, which has been a stimulant for 
me to try and do a little better next year. 

I hope in my declining years I shall always have a 
garden, and feel that as long as I can make things 
grow I am still of some use in the world. 

By Fr.\xk Fisher 

Gardening is my favorite occupation. To 
describe the enjoyments and benefits that I receive 
from my garden would be an impossible feat. I 
will attempt to say only the principal reasons. 

Especially in these trying times when food is so 
scarce, and the cost of living is sky high, the home 
garden is a necessity. We must at least supply 
ourselves with all the vegetables we need summer 
and winter. We must have a garden, anfl do 
something extra besides our regular routine to 
make up for the loss that we incurred to secure 
our great victory in the World War. By increasing 
the supply we will satisfy the demand, and doing 
so, things will go back to normal conditions with 
greater speed. Xot counting these patriotic 
obligations, think of the improvement for our 
health and community! The energy spent in 
working our garden will be fully replenished with 
red blood in our veins. It is hard work, we all 
know, and we may get tired — but not sick or lazy. 

Eight hours of sound sleep will put us in excellent 
condition for the next day, and, believe me, the 
work I put in my garden brings peace and happiness 
to my soul. After I have spent an hour or two in 
my garden every evening I feel contented, knowing 
that I have done a little more. 

I enjoy with keen interest planting things and 
watching them grow, and gathering them when 
they are at their best, for I know they are fresh, 
clean, more appetizing, full of natural flavor and 

It pays to have a garden, no matter how small, 
and it promotes health and wealth. Let all of us 
have a garden next year. 


The following letter was mailed to the Editor, 
and is being printed as a token of appreciation for 
services rendered by the company: 

Rochester, X'. Y., 
Mr. H. S. Thorpe, August 8, I9i0. 

Dear Sir: 

Through you, as Editor of the Camera Works 
Section of the Kodak Magazine, I wish to congratu- 
late the Eastman Kodak Company and Mr. George 
Eastman — as the Main Spring — for the splendid 
system for the employees. 

Had the misfortune to have my foot badly crushed 
while moving machinery in the factory, and had 
three bones broken, and a cut three inches long 
across the joint of my great toe. Great praise is 
due to Drs. Slater and Sawwer for the skill and 
attention they gave my foot, which is now as good 
as ever. The nurses were very kind and attentive. 

The heads of the different departments are good- 
natured and the employees sociable. Most 
everyone has a smile. 

It is a pleasure to work in a factory of that kind. 
Yours very truly, 

David O'Connor 



Several inquiries regarding the future of the Story 
Tellers' Class have elicited the information that 
the coming autumn and winter sessions will hold 
many surprises in the shape of competitions and 
general photographic work. Developing tanks and 
dark room apparatus will l)e at the service of the 
members, and there is no question that for interest 
and general education the Story Tellers' Class will 
rank ace high in our winter activities. 

Leslie Jackson is wearing "the smile that won't 
come off" and we don't blame him. Just a little 
idea applied to his job netted him $25.00 as an 
award for*a suggestion. Don't say "It's luck," 
or "Pretty soft;" just figure out what the Good 
Book means by saying "Go thou and do likewise." 

Sam Harvey and George Brooks are deadly rivals 
in tomatoes. They compare notes, and bring 
samples, and its hard to choose the winner. Sam 
says he thought the Daylight Saving Law would 
shorten up the growing season, but he can't see 
where it has harmed the garden any. 

Helen Englert, V. P. Assembling Department, 
was married to Henry Van Gemert on August oth 
at St. Michael's Church. Best wishes. 

John McGovern and Ed Colgrove are raising 
potatoes on a large scale. The trouble is now that 
they are worrying for fear of a large scale being 
raised on the potatoes! 

"Visit your Gardening Exhibit at the Exposition." 


McMurray and Campbell sure can swing a wicked 
club. Those $8 clubs from Spaulding's are might\ 
tough and hard to break. Ask A. Heaphy. He 
knows. Millspaugh's golf is good, but his counting 
is not. Jack Heaphy's idea of "the end of a perfect 
day" — the ninth hole with the green in the center 
of the river. 

On the date of this publication the Camera Works 
Gardening As.sociation will have held its fifth annual 
exhibition. Several interesting photographs will 
be reproduced in the October number of the Kodak 
Magazine, and also pictures of the Industrial 
Gardening Exhibit at the Exposition.

Barney Alstad, our engraver in the Tool Room, 
took a trip to Washmgton and Philadelphia 
to visit the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, 
and also the U. S. Mint. On his return Barney 
said: "If you had seen all the money that they 
were making so easily, you would have felt the same 
wav that I did — dizzv!" 

Chas. Roller, of the Milling Department, had a 
slight accident with his new Ford the other day. 
The wires got crossed some way and caught fire. 
Charles grasped the burning wMre and cut it in 
two with his knife. He burned his fingers, but 
saved the car. Quite a hero, say we! 

Bill Lawrence, that genial soul from the Offices 
wishes to state that if there are any more weddings, 
from the 7th floor he will have to send out an 
S. O. S. for old shoes. 

Joe Di Biase, of Department 11, turned in one 
of those "come back suggestions;" that is, a 
suggestion whereby the saving in material is figured 
each year, and a reward is made at different periods 
from the original suggestion. Joe has just received 
another "dividend" of $25 from a suggestion turned 
in last year. One of this type is really worth while, 
and the additional awards should be an incentive 
to try hard for suggestions relating to saving in cost 
of production. 

Sympathy is extended to Betty Johnstone, of 
the Office, on the death of her father. 




The Inspection Department is far from prominent 

in location, l>eing tucked away in a corner on the 
6th floor, but something extraordinary, or worthy 
of mention, cannot be "hid under a bushel" very 
long, and the fame of the department will be promi- 
nent from now on. 

Here's the secret! 

Charles Houck — befter knoivn a.i Charlie — has 
not been late for ^6 years. 

It seems hardly credible, but the records we have 
go to prove this fact. Furthermore, Charlie has 
not lost any time in all those years except in cases 
of absolute sickness. We have on file several men 
and women who have a perfect attendance of 1 to 
5 years, but a record of '■26 years was a new one. 
Charlie didn't boast of the fact either, but he had 
to acknowledge it was right. Whether Charlie 
has a special dispensation from the Gods of Luck, 
or whether he carries a rabbit's foot, or how he does 
it — w^e can't tell. Anyway, it's a prov^en fact, 
and it should be an incentive to try it out for at 
least one year, and then, to use Charlie's own words, 
"The rest is easv." 

No, this is not a history of the World's War, but 
just an Indoor Baseball game, and in spite of the 
opposing factions, a pretty friendly one at that. 

The Shutter Room contains a live bunch of people 
who are very interested in sporting rivalry, and the 
idea of two "international" baseball teams created 
much interest. The line-up was as follows:

Exposition Park was the stage of the sham battle, 
and the real exciting point of the game was when the 
two battalions came to a close skirmish — much to 
the consternation of Umpire Ritz — regarding a foul 
tip in the Ttli inning. The Germans declared that 
the umpire had ear muffs on, but the Irish won that 
decision, and also the game, which ended in a score 
of 9 to 6. 

Frank O'Brien, of the Tool Supervision Depart- 
ment, is wearing an extra smile these days His 
wife presented him with a baby boy, and Frank 
will now have another subject to pose for his Kodak 
pictures, for which he is justly famous. 

John Lowater. that popular figure of the Tool 
Room, is by test a first class tool maker, but he 
evidently is not as good a celery grower. Jolin — 
so the story goes — planted .seeds in July, and ex- 
pected to eat celery in September John should 
consult the Secretary of the Gardening Association, 
or else install electric current in his yard to hurry 
things along.

On Saturday, August 28, 1920, the employees of 
the Folmer-Century Works held their annual picnic 
at Sea Breeze. 

Joseph J. Dreschler, Jr., chairman of the picnic 
committee, worked very hard to make this picnic 
the best ever, and he surely succeeded. 

The committee on sports and entertainment 
consisted of Albert Doering, Frank O. Perrin, 
Edw. McCormack and George J. Jost, who arranged 
a very attractive list of games and sports. 

The committee on food and transportation 
consisted of Lester Silliman, A. W. Crittenden, 
Ambrose Smith, Frank Mathis, Edw. Langham 
and John Walz.

We express our sympathy to Henry Kunkel, 
of the Assembly Department, whose sister died

Richard Krieke, of the Assembly Department,

to work. 






Louis Deihl, who has recently been promoted 
to foreman of the Lacquering Department, began 
employment with the Folmer-Century Works 
September 7, 1909, in the capacity of an assembler, 
and through diligence in his work he advanced 
himself to his present position. Mr. Deihl is well 
6tted for this work and we wish him much success 
in his new undertaking. 




Richard Hoare, familiarly known as "Chief"

Careless handling of materials produces perhaps 
more accidents than any other single cause. The 
right way is just as easy as the wrong way, and 
takes no more time. Remember this when you 
are moving or handling materials. 


Harry W. Dawe. one of the most popular em- 
ployees of the Folmer-Century Works, left the 
employ of the Company August !21st, 1920, on 
account of ill health. This was an occasion of mutual 
regret, as Mr. Dawe was held in high esteem by his 
fellow employees, and nothing but ill health would 
take him from those with whom he has served so 
many years, and whose best wishes go with him. 
Mr. Dawe leaves immediately for San Diego, Cal. 

Charles Arthman, of the Case Department, and 
Helen Burpee were united in matrimony Aug. 11, 
1920. Mr. and Mrs. Arthman left for a Western 
trip, after which they will reside at No. 3 Henion 
Street . 

Don't be one of the smart guys who say: "Noth- 
ing ever happened to me and I've been on this job 
for ten years," and he expects you to believe that 
no accident can befall liim. It only takes one 
accident, if it is serious, to make a cripple of any 
perfect man. An accident is like lightning — - 
it may strike anywhere. But you can always be 
safe from accidents if you are careful and see to it 
that others are careful too. 





If, in our enthusiasm over the work of the Hawk- 
Eye team in the Eastman Kodak Baseball League, 
we have forgotten to say enough about our girls, 
it is not because they are not playing winning ball. 
To date the Main Office has been twice defeated 
and Bastian Brothers lady tossers have been ibeaten 
three times. Two defeats have been suffered, 
one at the hands of the WoUensak Optical Com- 
pany, and the other from Kodak Park. 

Captain Lois Kurtz is not only playing big league 
ball herself, but is handling the team capably on 
the field. Captain Kurtz and Magdalen Hettel 
are our first string pitchers and are both dependable 
moimd artists. 

Jane (Babe Ruth) DeGraff, Queen of Swat- 
smithesses, is perhaps the find of the season. The 
two three-baggers and a home run that Jane poled 
out in the Main Office game, are samples of what she 
does with regularity. 

Elizabeth Meerdink, who works behind the bat, 
handles herself like a veteran and is as steady as a 
rock in a pinch. 

Alice Gears works like a Trojan wherever she is 
placed, and is especially valuable because she seems 
to be capable in any position. 

Then there is Grace Wiemer, who fields her 
position like a star, and Ruth Kurtz, Ethel Rein- 
hardt, Pauline Krzywick, Marion DeBurgomaster, 
Elsie Albers, Freda Topel and Caroline Cooligan, 
a galaxy of the baseball talent of ^\■hich Hawk-Eye 
may well be proud. 

William Schlegel. alias Bill, who is he.* We 
couldn't very well talk girls' baseball and leave him 
out. He is the mentor, so to speak, the spiritual 
adviser and coach extraordinary. Bill has brought 
the team from a crowd of green aspirants up to one 
of the smoothest working girls' teams in the city and 
deserves all the credit that Hawk-Eve can bestow.

Hawk-Eye's all star track team showed its worth 
Wednesday. August 11th, by winning the All- 
Scholastics open meet on the I'niversity track by 
40 points over the nearest competitor. Clayton 
Schnarr, of the Lens Department, and Sam Marzulo, 
of the Mounting Department, walked off with 14 
and 10 points respectively. It was a great evening 
for Hawk-Eye with seven men counting in the 
scoring. Captain Vass ran a pretty race in the 
half-mile event, but was nosed out at the finish by 
Kellogg of the All-Scholastics. Alfred Lovesky, 
of the Mounting Department, counted for 5 points.

The Second Annual Picnic of the Hawk-Eye 
Athletic Association, which startled Manitou 
Beach on Saturday, August 7th, was all that had 
been promised, from the first gurgle of the band 
outside the factory in the morning, to that "tired 
but happy" feeling which every one is supposed to 
pack home from any regular outing. It was an 
affair ground so that all hands were in focus. 
Hawk-Eytes, Hawk-Eyettes and Hawk-Eyelets 
were there in force, and each found a share in the 
fun and goodies. For the tiny tots in rompers, 
for those who could remember how it was done 
twenty years, ago, for those who wandered off in 
pairs, for those who danced, or ran, or played — 
it was a memorable day in Hawk-Eye sport. 

Mr. Weather Man must have felt the importance 
of the affair from the way he handled his end of the 
arrangements. Except for a shower, during the 
year and a half the punctured grub wagon made us 
wait, the day was made to order. The events 
ran off with a smoothness that was a tribute to the 

And those ball games! If they were the whole 
picnic a man-size volume wouldn't cover the 
subject. Ask a fine-ground and wax-polished 
Hawk-Eyte about it and he gets 'em all muddled 
up. Can't tell whether it was Benny Levine or 
Ruth Kurtz who lined that one out in left. Was it 
Elizabeth Meerdink or Pete who caught that man 
off second? No, you're right; it couldn't have 
been Elizabeth. In the meantime, Bill Schlegel 
and George Brennan just sat there and grinned and 
egged 'em on. Oh, those were some Hawk-Eye 
games and we are glad the Main Office was there. 
We must give them credit for the best of 

Hawk-Eye has made a reputation for itself in 
the picnic line, and we had lots of visitors — some 
who thought it couldn't be done and some who 




just wanted to see how it is done. Mr. Robertson 
was there from the Camera Works. Mr. Haight, 
Manager of Industrial Relations; ^Ir. Hord. Editor 
of the Kodak Magazine, and Mr. Thompson, General 
Safety Supervisor, came from the Main Office. 
We are glad to have had them with us because we 
are proud of our achievements. 

Then those races I Did you see that pie disappear 
when Ezra Myers stuck his face into it? And that 
row of poplar trees looked like the teeth of a fine 
tooth comb to Ruth Kurtz as she won the girls" 
championship. And Leo Mason wore button 
shoes in the shoe race, and Loretta Ereth glided 
along with that egg in the spoon. It was one 
grand round of talent. 

The feature of the Hawk-Eye picnic.^ The Kid- 
dies — the Hawk-Eyelets. 

What would a picnic be without them.^ It was 
worth twice the efl^ort for them alone. Pink and 
white, big and little, tow-heads, black-tops, and 
red-thatched roofs, they were all there, glad of it 
and ready to tell you so in a four-county voice. 
It was their day from peanuts to lollipops, with a 
couple of brass bands and lots of sport thrown in. 

So we leave the picnic to memory for another 
year, but it is a memory of one of the finest exhilji- 
tions of Hawk-Eye spirit, or any other spirit for 
that matter, that coukl be expected this side of 
perfection. To Mr. F. H. Von Deben, General 
Chairman; to his Committees; to Mr. F. L. Higgins. 
Plant Manager; and to the officers of the Athletic 
Association, we can only say "thanks — we had the 
time of our lives." 

The Tool Department had a large number at our 
picnic at Manitou, and everyone reports the best 
kind of a time. 

Karl Manhold. of the TooljDepartment, has 
recently bought a new home andyis comfortably 
settled in it. 





Xot unlike the rest of us, Wilbur got his start 
when he was very young — going to school and 
playing around as is the custom. From the gram- 
mar school he entered West High School, where, 
aside from his studies, he gained recognition as a 
basketball player. Graduating in 1911, he entered 
the coal business and labored earnestly to help 
"keep the home fires burning." 


A high school education and the coal business 
did not appeal to young Woodams as the limit of 
his personal fitness to go on in the struggle of life. 
His ambition was to have a college education, so 
with this in mind he entered the University of 
Rochester in the fall of 1913 for a four-year course, 
graduating as of the class of 1917. 

Mr. Woodams heard the call of his country in the 
late World War and was among the first to leave 
this city. He enlisted at Newport, R. I., on April 
11, 1917, as a seaman in the I'. S. Navy. Thirty 
mouths of duty is the period of his enlistment, and 
in that short time he rose to the grade of Lieutenant 
(Junior Grade). 

As a returned service man ^Ir. Woodams came 
to us to take charge of our Department of Industrial 
Relations, a position for which he is well qualified. 
His work at the Hawk-Eye Works is not of the 
"cut and dried" variety, for he must be ready to 
meet the requirements of every new phase of work 
that comes within the scope of employment and 
personnel work. As Employment Manager he 
directs the hiring of new employees, the transfer 
of employees from one department to another, etc-.. 

and as Safety Inspector he guards the safety and 
well being of all our employees. As editor of the 
Hawk-Eye section of the Kodak Magazine he places 
before its readers all the newsy items of plant 
activities, and as manager of the Hawk-Eye Athletic 
As.sociation his chief duties are to maintain interest 
and build up Hawk-Eye spirit. 

Life in the Navy during a time such as the late 
war gives one a new and better view of the various 
types of men. The contact with these men as an 
officer gave Mr. Woodams the very best foundation 
possible, and coupled with his college training he is 
eminently fitted to direct our employment work. 
Editing a magazine is nothing new to Wilbur, as 
he did likewise as one of the producers of the U. of 
R. weekly, "The Campus." Nor is athletic manager 
out of "Woodie's" line, as he was manager of the 
1910-11 West High basketball team. 

Thus do we find our Industrial Relations Depart- 
ment at the Hawk-Eye Works in the hands of a 
very capable director. 


The Hawk-Eye team is going at a championship 
gait this season and deserves all the support the 
employees of the plant can give. We want to see 
every loyal baseball fan parked up in the grandstand 
at each of the remaining games with a chatter of 
good cheer that will make our boys play like Connie 
Mack's 1913 World Champions. 

Seven victories and two defeats give us a .777 
percentage and the lead in the Eastman Kodak 
League. When we say defeats let us add that both 
were by a one run margin, a fact not to be 

Much of our success can be credited to the good 
pitching served up by Kozlowski, Marcille and 
Graham. Kozlowski, while he was with us, won 
two games and lost one; Graham is credited with 
one in his favor, while Marcille, our first string 
pitcher, has a present record of three victories and 
one defeat. Marcille pitches fast ball, works hard, 
fields his position well, and is dangerous at the bat. 

Peterson is a tower of strength behind the bat. 
As field captain he directs the team He receives 
and throws well, but shines as a swatter of the first 
order. His famous crouch over the plate gives 
the opposing hurler something to worry about. 
"Pete" hits the ball hard. 

Moore at first, Felerski at second, Ingleby at 
short, and Prentice at third, give us a combination 
of fast fielders and good stickers. Moore's past 
experience in fast baseball company is a big help 
to the younger players on the team. Leo Felerski's 
playing at second and third is all that could be asked 
for. Ingleby is gaining attention ])oth for his clever 
fielding and his stick work. Prentice, the youngest 
member in our infield, improves with every game 
played. "Charlie" Hoffmeier is our utility infielder, 
and fits in well with the Hawk-Eye system when 

Hawk-Eye lays claim to the fastest fielding 
outfield in the league. Levnne, Wiedeman, Boehm 
and Van Lare are noted for their speed and they 
perform their task at the bat in true hard-hitting 
Hawk-Eve stvle. 





Despite the fact that Ontario Beach was visited 
by quite a heavy rain storm during the early part 
of the afternoon, the picnic of the Kodak Park 
Athletic Association, held Saturday, August 14th, 
was on the whole considered a great success. Over 
five thousand persons were in attendance and 
enjoyed every minute from the time they arrived 
until the orchestra put away their instruments 
and called off the dancing for the evening. The 
day was warm and ideal for bathing, many of the 
people spending the entire afternoon in the water. 

A most unusual program of sports was prepared 
by the Entertainment Committee, and every 
number was greatly enjoyed, both by the partici- 
pants and the spectators. The baseball game 
between the "old-timers" under Jim Ward, and 
Harvey Shannon's "Colts," was called off on 
account of the rain. The first real attraction 
was the Obstacle Race. After overcoming numerous 
difficulties distributed along the course, this race 
was won by Wm. Amering, of the Pipe Shop, with 
Charles Ratzel, also of the Pipe Shop, second. The 
Radish race for the girls was won by Catherine 
Skinner, Film Pack Department, and Harriet 
Hyde of the Film Rewinding. Much amusement 
was furnished by the Blind Hurdle Race. The 
contestants were shown the hurdles they were to 
jump and then blindfolded after being assigned a 
leader whose duty it was to tell them when they 
reached one of the hurdles. The men were lined 
up and the hurdles removed, after which the word 
was given to start. Most of the runners did not 
rely on the advice of their leaders but took no 
chances, making each step a jump, with the result 
that Wm. Amering and Charles Ratzel were again 
awarded the prizes by the judges as the result of 
their amusing antics. The Shoe Race was as usual 
a most interesting event, it being won by Hazel 
Mader, Black Paper Winding, with Anna Med urn, 
of the Film Shipping, second. George Tiffany, 
of the Box Department, set the pace all the way 
in the Cracker Race, followed closely by Ted Mc- 
Crossen, of the Main Office. AVhat they did witli 
their crackers is still a mystery to many, as the 
majority of the contestants were still on their second 
and third cracker when tiie winners finished the 
latest version of "Yankee Doodle." 

Due to the large number of entries it was neces- 
sary to run the Nail-driving contest in relays. In 
the finals of this event Edith Lee, Film Pack, 

finished first, and Bessie Withers, Cine Packing 
Department, second. 

Very few elopements are carried through without 
considerable trouble. This precedent applied to 
the Elopement Race, which, after the first attempt, 
had to be run over, due to the fact that there was 
some misunderstanding relative to the instructions, 
the choice of men by some of the girls, or some other 
perfectly good reason. However, the second 
attempt was successful, and Chas. Ratzel, of the 
Pipe Shop, and Bessie Withers, of the Cine Packing, 
won first prize, while second place went to Robert 
Eastman, Chemical Plant, and Veronica Culhans. 
Film Spooling. Walter Grunst, of the Roll Coating 
Department, won first prize in the Water Race and 
H. Hudson, Research Lab., .second. 

Due to the late start, it was impossible to carry 
out the entire program, so the baseball game 
between the Kodak Park girls and the Alderman- 
Fairchild team, was staged at this time. This 
proved to be a real ball game. It was the first 
real test our girls have had against a team of 
experience, and during the early part of the game 
they exhibited a touch of stage fright, the large 
crowd also having its effect. The pitching of 
the opposing twirler was excellent, her delivery 
and speed puzzling the girls at the start. In the 
fifth inning, however, their old-time confidence in a 
measure returned, resulting in several hits, although 
no runs were secured in this inning. However, 
in the sixth a series of well-placed hits resulted in 
two runs which, although not enough to win, 
prevented a shut-out and the game ended four 
and two for the visitors. The features of the 
game were the strong, steady pitching by Laura 
Duby, her confidence and ability in the pinches, 
and the excellent fielding game played by Mabel 
Remillard at first, although it is hard to discriminate 
among the players, as everyone did her best and 
played good baseball all during the game. 

The First .\id Hospital, under the direction 
of Dr. W. A. Sawyer and Miss M. (iaylord, proved 
to be a preventive rather than a remedy, as very 
few cases were treated, none of which were serious. 
An expression of apjpreciation is extended to B. 
William Carlin and the R. J. Strasenburgh Com- 
pany for the use of the hospital equipment on this 

The nuisic furnished by R. Ives was excellent 
and proved mighty popular during the entire after- 
noon and evening. 


Officials of the day were: Judges, Mrs. J. H. 
Haste, Mrs. P. S. Wilcox, Mrs. D. E. Reid, Mrs. 
P. C. Seel, Mrs. H. E. Van Derhoef, Mrs. H. H.

Due to the fact that Mr. Harriet, who has been 
conducting the class in Astronomy, is leaving 
Kodak Park, the instructions for the present must 
be discontinued. This is greatly regretted by the 
members of the class, who are greatly interested in 
this study. The class presented Mr. Harriet with 
a thermos bottle and case, in testimony of its high 


After several weeks of conscientious practice 
Kodak Park Band has resumed the noon hour con- 
certs on the front lawn. 

A very decided improvement is shown, not only 
in the class of music being played, but also the unity 
in which the members are working. 

Much credit for the spirit of harmony which 
exists is due to the efforts of Manager Dierdorf, 
whose principal aim is to have the Kodak Park Band 
rank among the best in the city. 

A farewell party for Ann and Kathleen Stelmack 
was given at the home of L. Smart, 47 Keehl Street, 
July 16th. Ann is leaving for Niagara Falls and 
Kathleen for Pittsburgh. 

A little suffragette arrived at the home of Carl 
Motzer of the P. & S. Department. Weighed 9 
pounds. The boys and girls of the department 
enjoyed the cigars and chocolates.

First honors in the Girls' Tennis Tournament, 
recently held at Kodak Park, were won by Theresa 
Zick, of the Payroll Department, who defeated 
Ann Dalzell, of Building No. 35, in the finals. 

Forty-three girls participated in the Annual 
Tournament, which was by far the most popular 
and successful ever held. 

In the final match between Miss Zick and Miss 
Dalzell, an excellent brand of tennis was displayed, 
the score being O—t, 6^. 6-2. Miss Zick won in 
three straight sets, although each game went to 
deuce before it was decided. 

The efi'ort on the part of the management of the 
Association to stimulate interest among the girls, 
resulting in the assigning of a certain portion of the 
athletic field and tennis courts to them, is evidently 
being appreciated from the interest which has been 
displayed so far this season. An efi'ort is being 
made to arrange matches with other girls' teams 
in Rochester, which should prove very interesting.

Violet Taillie, of the D. O. P. Packing Depart- 
ment, and Elmer Kirchgessner, of the Drafting 
Department, were married August 17th by Rev. 
Hermenter, after which Mr. and Mrs. Kirchgessner 
left for Detroit. A shower was given on Friday. 
July 30th. by Miss Ellen Greely and Miss Leah 
Schultz, about 35 being present. 


Early in April the Girls' Baseball Club was 
organized at Kodak Park, under the direction of 
the K. P. A. A. After several weeks' practice, 
during which numerous games were jjlayed by 
teams picked from among the girls who were 
interested in this activity, a representative team 
was picked with the view of meeting other girls' 
teams from the difi^erent firms in this vicinity. 

Up to the present time they have not lost a game, 
having defeated the teams of the other Eastman 
plants as well as several of those affiliating with the 
I. A. R. A. 

A contest has been arranged with the North East 
Electric team, champions of the I. A. R. A. League, 
and it is expected that Kodak Park will also compete 
in other series before the end of the ba.seball season. 

Much of the team's success is due to the sterling 
pitching of Captain Laura Duby. 

Results of the games played to date are as follows : 
Kodak Park .... 33 Hawk-Eye .... 7

About 80 members of Trick I, Emulsion Coating 
Department, Building No. 29, journeyed down to 
Point Pleasant on Monday, August 9. The trip 
was made by automobiles. 

L pon arrival the feature event of the day was set. 
This was an indoor baseball game between Trick I 
and the visiting team. Trick III. C. Eysaman 
captained Trick I and T. Schubmehl Trick III. 
From the start Trick III gained a decided lead 
and continued to maintain it throughout the whole 
game despite the great effort made by Clint's men. 
The result was : 

Trick III— 15. Pitcher, Eckerson 
Trick I — 9. Pitcher, Eysaman 

J. Young officiated as umpire and he did it with 
grace and rare judgment, while "Doc" Yates 
capably assisted him at the bases. 

Next an excellent chicken and fish dinner was 
served at the hotel and was thoroughly enjoyed by 
all. Mr. Blackwood gave the toast to the visitors. 
J. Lee, in reply, thanked the members for their 
cordiality and appreciated the fine sportsmanship 
evidenced, and expressed a wish that the same spirit 
would always continue. J. Y'oung said he would 
vouch for its continuance, and tactfully assured 
them that after a few more work outs Trick I would 
more than win back their lost laurels. 

The Olympiad then followed:

On Saturday, July 31st. the employees of the 
F. F. S. Department journeyed to Point Pleasant 
via automobiles for a picnic. "Bill" Eddon took 
his Ford, and Harry Mostyn is still pale from riding 
with him. 

At 1:15 the sports began. The first number 
on the program was an excellent chicken and fish 
dinner. Taber wanted to know what kind of fish 
it was without any bones (he had the tail). "Bill" 
Fauth spoke nary a word while dinner was served, 
and Fred Dorschell sure docs care for rye bread. 
While waiting for Porey to finish his dinner, the 
toastmaster, Mr. Eddon, had everyone give a 
toast. Mr. Martin told several stories and recited 
a poem. Some of the fellows got nervous watching 
Brownie eat so we all went outside and let him 
finish, and on the way out Bullen tried to cop the 
cigars which were left. Everyone then went over 
to the ball game, except Percy Considine. He had 
his own sport putting on a tire from 2:30 to 5:00. 

Forstbauer and Smith picked out teams to play 
Indoor Ball. Mr. Robinson umpired (.^) (for 
"Chuck's" team). Swanson played first on 
"Chuck's" team, and with his long arms nothing 
got by unless it went between his legs. Baehr, 
on Smith's team, made a run home as the result of 
the catcher dropping the ball. Some reasons why 
Smith's team lost the game were that "Joe" Werner 
hollered too much and "Chuck" played between 
pitcher and catcher at short . 

After the game we had a 100-yd. dash; some of 
the boys didn't like the start so they were left 
behind. Sherman was first and Swanson second. 
"Vic" would have been first, but he couldn't make 
his feet behave. In the Sack race Henderson and 
Baehr won. They are some hoppers. Mostyn 
was in this race, too. In the Three-legged race 
"Chuck" carried Green into first place and Bright- 
man and Hetzler were second. The Cracker 
Eating contest was won by Kuhn. In the Wheel- 
barrow race, Kuhn and Bullen won by wiggling 

home. The Time race was won by Helgler and 
Eddon. l?rown and Brightinan won the Potato 
race anrl in the Tug-of-War Smith's team pulled 
"Chuck's" team off their feet two out of three times. 
About this time Dorschell, who, as the result of 
an accident, could only see out of one eye, thought 
it was getting dark, so he started the homeward 
glide, but Mostyn didn't ride with Eddon. 


The Kodak Park and Camera Works Soccer 
Teams held a joint picnic at East Maplewood on 
Sunday, August 8th. About 00 persons, including 
members of the two organizations with families 
and friends, together with numerous well-filled 
lunch baskets were transported to the picnic grounds 
in automobiles. A long list of sports was run off, 
the following persons winning prizes in the different

October 1st to 31st 


The prizes will be in cash or photographic goods 

of the equivalent value, to be chosen by the winners. 

1st Prize in each class $10.00 

2nd Prize in each class 5 . 00 

3rd Prize in each class 1 . 00 

C Honorable Mentions in each class 


All prints or enlargements entered in the contest, 
except those as stated below, will be grouped under 
five classes, as follows: 

1. Portraiture. 

The picture may be taken outdoors or inside, 
but is considered as a portrait only when the 
person or group of persons is the subject of 
interest, the background and surroundings 
being entirely subordinate. 

2. Landscape. 

This class includes out-of-door pictures taken 

in the Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, which 

represent land scenery as the principal subject. 

They may include, however, people or animals, 

or small bodies of water when these are purely 


Sunsets over the land are classed as landscapes. 

3. Marine. 

Any water picture where the interest is not 
centered in some important persons or objects 
in the foregroimd which claim the greater 
portion of the attention are considered marines. 
Sunsets over the water are classed as marines. 

4. Architectural and Interiors. 

This class includes pictures where buildings or 
their interiors claim the most of the attention. 
People, if present, must be entirely subortlinate. 
Doorways and porticos are included. 
If there are no pictures entered in this class 
and there are some which cannot well be classi- 
fied under the other four classes, this will be 
called the "Miscellaneous Class." 

5. Genre. 

Here will be classed all pictures of street or 

country life, or pictures in which figures are 

associated with surroundings or express an 

idea or thing. 

In addition to the above five classes in which 

prizes are offered, there will also be a class to include 

freak photographs, photographs of athletic events, 

and other photographs which as such may be very 

good photographs, but could not be judged on the 

basis of artistic merit. Six Honorable Mentions 

will be awarded in this class, but no cash prizes. 


1. All members of the Kodak Park Camera Club, 
except the strictly professional photographers, may 
enter the contest for prizes. The latter are request- 
ed to help the Exhibition by entering pictures in it. 

A professional is defined for this contest as anyone 
who has made photographic prints or enlargements 
of an artistic nature for money, or for the Eastman 
Kodak Company or other photographic concerns. 
Because, for instance, a person has run tests on 
developers or some such work, it does not bar him 
rom the contest, since such work does not imply 

that he can make prints or enlargements better 
than someone else. 

2. Both contact prints and enlargements may 
be entered, and all prints or enlargements must be 
mounted individually, but not framed. 

3. Anything in size up to 8 x 10 will be 

•4. Any number of prints may be entered in any 
class (or all classes), but not more than one prize 
can be won by a competitor in any one class. He 
(or she) is not barred from additional prizes in 
other classes. Not more than three prizes in all can 
be won by one competitor. 

5. On the back of each entry must appear the 

The title of the picture. 
The competitor's name. 
The Kodak or Camera used. 
The lens used. 
Stop and time of exposure. 
Place where picture was taken. 

6. The picture must have been taken by the 
competitor, but the print or enlargement may have 
been made by someone else. 

7. The pictures will be judged on the basis of 

(a) Artistic merit of the picture itself. 

(b) Photographic technique. 

(c) Mounting and general appearance. 

8. All pictures winning prizes and Honorable 
Mentions will be considered at the disposal of the 
Camera Club. If published by a magazine other 
than Kodak Magazine, money received in payment 
of them will be turned over to the winners. Such 
money received by the winners will not cause them 
to be classed in future competitions as professionals. 


The object of the semi-annual contest is to stim- 
ulate a lively interest in artistic photography and 
to encourage the beginners as well as the more 
experienced photographers to do better work. 

The beginners should take a special interest in 
submitting prints, since in later contests prizes will 
probably be offered for improvement in work. 
Save the prints which are returned to you after the 
contest for this purpose. The data on the back will 
be their identification in the future. 

Every member of the Camera Club should do 
his or her part to make this, the first contest, a real 
success. By so doing he or she will not only help 
himself or herself photographically, and get an 
immense amount of pleasure out of it, but will also 
become a booster for the Camera Club. 

If others see that the club is a live organization 
they will want to join it, too, and be able to enjoy 
its pri^•ileges. Any Kodak Park employee may 
become a member of the Kodak Park Camera Club 
by signing application for membership and upon 
payment of 8.50, the yearly dues. Applications 
mav be obtained from E. Goodridge, K. P. A. A. 
Office, Building No. 28.

Under the new rating system, which has been 
adopted this year, some very good tennis is being 
played. Only thirty names are placed on the rating 
list, which constitutes the "Tennis Honor Roll." 
Any player whose name is not included in the list 
is entitled to challenge any of the last five players, 
and if he is successful in defeating his opponent, 
his name is placed before the defeated player and 
the thirtieth man automatically is dropped off. 

The committee in charge of this activity realizes 
that there are many players on the Park concerning 
whom sufficient information is not obtainable for 
properly rating them. Perhaps some of these are 
entitled to be placed on this list. 

If your name does not appear on this list, and 
you are desirous to be given recognition, the above 
mentioned means afford you this opportunity.

The first annual picnic of the Dining Hall em- 
[)loyees was held on Sunday, August 15th, at 
"Coddington cottage," at Sea Breeze. The 
families and friends of the employees were invited, 
making a most congenial gathering. An excellent 
dinner was served, after which a number of sport 
events, under the direction of James Ives and Ray 
Thorpe, were run off. Prizes were awarded the 
winners, the women receiving candy and the men 
smokes. A baseball game was played between the 
"Kitchen" and the "Dining Hall." Due to the 
exceptionally large number of heavy hitters the 
game was called in the fourth inning as the ball was 
no longer fit for use. After the game came the 
water sports, in which nearly everyone participated. 
The most interesting event was the water race, 
which was won by none other than our famous 
chef of the Dining Hall, Fred G. Packard. Everyone 
was now ready for the supper, which, thanks to 
Ed , was some meal. Music, songs and dancing 
occupied the early evening, after which we cranked 
up "Henry," loaded in the family and proceeded 
homeward with that feeling of satisfaction which is 
brought about only by good fellowship, good eats 
and good smokes. A year will be a long time to 
wait for the second annual, but it is worth it. 

Kate Douglass, of the Velox Department, and 
Albert Brighton were married August 4th by Rev. 
George Burns, Rector of Sacred Heart Church. 
On July 9th a shower was given at the home of 
Ruth and Gladys Meehan, about forty girls being

The details for the Evening School Classes to 
be held at Kodak Park during the coming fall and 
winter are being carefully studied, and as a result 
the difficulties in connection with the planning 
are daily being removed. 

It seems best to begin the active class work 
the week lieginning Monday, October 11th, and 
conduct classes for ten weeks, closing Saturday, 
December 18th, for the holiday season; reopen 
the week beginning Monday, January 2nd, UHl, 
continue for fifteen weeks, closing the week ending 
Saturday, April 9th, 1921. This program gives 
an evening school year of twenty-five weeks, which, 
according to the schedule published in the Kodak 
Magazine of August, permits of twenty-five lessons 
in subjects reporting once a week, and fifty lessons 
in subjects reporting twice a week. 

It is the purpose of those planning the course 
of study to so divide the subjects that the completing 
of the twenty-five weeks' evening school work in a 
subject will mean the completing of one phase of 
that subject, for example — the course in Blue Print 
Reading is being arranged .so that it will enable a 
student to become familiar with the principles 
underlying all drawings, and further enable him to 
read intelligently the drawings which apply to his 
particular trade. 

In such courses as Chemistry, Mechanical Draw- 
ing, or Physics, which require years to master, the 
student when registering should plan to continue 
his study over a period of evening school terms 
that he may dig deep enough into the subject to 
realize its beauty and worth. It is planned, how- 
ever, that the completing of one evening school 
term's work in either of subjects will result 
in the covering of a definite portion of the subject. 
For example, it would be necessary to divide Physics 
into I, Mechanics; Course II, Electricity; 
Course III, Light and Heat. 

Registration for classes will occur the latter part 
of September. Bulletin Board Announcements 
will keep all informed as to definite dates, the neces- 
sary blanks to fill, and such other facts as are needed. 
Keep the subject in mind. We want this school 
to give you just the help in your work that you feel 
vou need. 

(t. Fenton, of the Industrial Economy Depart- 
ment, has accepted a position as Planning Expert 
with the American Wringer Company of Woon- 
socket, Rhode Island. Ilis many friends at the 
Park wish him great success in his new position. 

Florence Van Hoesen has returned to her work 
much improved after her long illness. Florence, 
we are glad to have you with us again. 

P. H. Case has reached the top in professional 
golf. Other golf players on the Park will do well 
to keep shy of Percy. 

Gertrude Cason, of the Velox Packing and Sealing 
Department, and Ernest Wager were married 
July 31st at the Holy Cross Rectory, by Rev. 
Father McCabe. A shower was given at the home 
of Dorothv Sheard on Mondav, Julv 26th. Good 

The Roll Coating Department mourns the loss 
of Frank H. Whitney, whose death occurred very 
suddenly Sunday morning, July 19, 1920, at his 
home, 53 Miller Street. Mr. Whitney came to this 
Department, May 28, 1913, and has been a faithful 
and efficient worker, also a "booster" for the K. P. 
A. A., of which he was a member. We extend our 
sympathy to the family in their sad bereavement. 

It's true it costs a lot more to live these days. 
It's worth more. There never was a time when it 
was possible to get as much out of life as at the pres- 
ent time. 

An epidemic has appeared in the families of 
.several employees of the Carbon Paper Department. 
It first showed its appearance at the home of Mr. 
Charles Carroll; shortly afterwards it appeared 
at the home of "Petey" Richter, and shortly after- 
wards "Jerry" Moynihan's home was visited. 

No, dear readers, not a contagious disease, but 
larger families. Carroll and Richter were both

A fast game of ball was played July 23rd, when 
"Yates' " bunch of sluggers stacked up against 
"Smith's" Colts. Both teams were composed of 
employees of tiie Roll Coating Department. 

The real outstanding features of the game were: 
the pitching of Alborn, who struck out 8 men; a 
throw from center field by Nelson; a catch by 
Reithel of Chamberlin's foul; a slide to 3rd base 
llirough the mud, after failing to touch 2nd and 
fielding honors for Hedges, McSweeney, Van

"I have accepted a position in Detroit. Michigan. 
part time inside and part time outside, just what I 
need due to my run down condition from a recent 
operation, but I must say that the Eastman Kodak 
Company has always used me white." Elmer

best of luck in his new position.

Get the safety habit — give safety advice. It

When Frank Sherman, of the Experimental 
Department, was spending a day in the country 
photographing, he saw a sign which read "Picture 
Ahead. Kodak as you go." Frank pulled up by 
the side of the road and when he stepped out of his 
car he thought he heard one of his children's rattles 
drop, but on closer observation soon found that it 
was a rattler, but not of the kind the chikli'en play 
with. Having previously taken a course in Safety 
First through the Rochester Safety Council, Frank 
knew just what to do. He seized his Premo 
Combination Tripod and the battle was on. After 
killing the snake he brought it home just to show 
us that this was a real snake. It measured three 
feet three inches in length and had nine rattles, 
one of which Frank carries for a pocket piece. 
"Pete" Gruber tanned the skin, out of which Frank 
has had some very pretty pocketbooks made. 


We do love fresh air. That is why you see our 
windows go up each morning. Our young country

If employees of the Premo think we can 
make this Department interesting for all of 
you without you sending in the happenings 
of your Departments and families, you are 
mistaken. Why not .send in a snap shot of 
the big fish Vernie Osborn caught, Charlie 
Young's girl, William Young's fine bulldog 
or a view of the only Essex car 'i All these 
make interesting stories; bring them in, any 
.snap shots that you have. None of us can 
write so well, as you can see by this, but 
because you are not a college professor, 
should not keep you from getting out a 
pencil stub and jotting down a few notes. 
Send them in, we will tell you if they arc 
accepted. Let us try! 

Is it a scarcity of pajjcr, or the shortage 
of pencils, or lack of enthusiasm, or are you 
going to spring a on us 'i What we 
want is more news from the fourth and 
fifth floors.

"Bobby" Bond has made a great start toward 
becoming a successful tool maker in the purchase of 
a tool box, very generous in size and a nice bright 
color. This tool box would be the pride of the tool 
room only for the fact that some of the tool makers 
are jealous (their tool boxes won't hold half as many 
tools as Bobby's will). Quite recently he found a 
large size spike protruding from the cover of his 
tool box, and upon trying to remove same with a 
nail puller, found the spike was only a dummy 
fastened on with wax. "Bobby" says it beats all 
how jealous some people are. 

Mrs. Richard Grady, of the Lacquer Department, 
has been confined to her home on account of sickness, 
but is reported as improving. We are glad to hear 
this and hope to see her back with us soon.

You men fishermen can all take off your hats to 
Myrtle Williams, of the Bellows Department. 
You see. Myrtle spends her week ends at Conesus 
Lake and if the basket of fish we saw is a sample 
(she says they were), apparently she knows what 
kind of bait to use. 

Do you wear one of our three-color buttons, 
red, white and royal blue.' It is the official recog- 
nition of membership in the Premo Club. You 
can procure yours from "Bert" Wilcox for twenty- 
five cents. 

Apparently Hilda Hinkson and Bertha McDowell, 
of the Covering Department^ have no fear for 
vehicle traffic when they take their daily short cut 
across South Street. Don't let us see you again, 
girls, reading the Kodak Magazine while crossing 
this way or we will give you a write-vip. 

Walter Martin, of the Accessory Department, 
who left us September !23, 1919, to ai-cept another 
job, is back with us again. He says he is cured, 
as he finds the Premo is a pretty good place to 
work. Welcome. 

Dear Mr. Wheeler: 

I want to thank the Premo Works for the kind 
assistance they gave me in the time of my trouble 
when my beloved mother passed away. Having 
no relatives and being alone, I do not know what 
I would have done if it had not been for Dolly 
Cody, the Yisiting Nurse. Walter Van Sanford 
and you. It certainly is the most wonderful 
Company that I have ever heard of, and even in 
my sad state of mind it makes me feel happy to 
think that I work for a firm like the Eastman 
Kodak Company. 

(Signed) Theres.v Schupp.

Over four hundred members attended the cruise 
of the K. O. R. C. As the first big event in the 
history of the chil). this outing was a success far 
beyond expectation. 

The picnickers were carried by train from the 
B. R. & P. station to the Genesee dock, where the 
Ontario No. i was waiting to carry them to Cobourg. 
Harry Seaman and his committee were already 
on the job when the picnickers reached the boat, 
and had enougli food prepared for an army. "Hots," 
sandwiches, pop, peanuts, ice cream and lollipops

It was not long after the athletics were over before 
the orchestra jazzed up and a goodly crowd was 
tripping the light fantastic over some other fellow's 
toes. Some one hit upon the bright idea of dancing 
on the forward deck as well, for it would have taken 
more than windows to conceal the strains. The 
jazz kept up a .steady stream until the boat pulled 
inside the pier at Col)ourg, where the orchestra 
went ashore with numerous others to get refreshed. 
They did, and the music was even better coming 

Everyone got back on time, which was remarkable 
in that so large a company went to inspect a wave 
liouse over on a neighboring pier. 

Lunch boxes were unwrapped again and as soon 
as the orchestra untied their nose bags they jazzed 
up again. 

(yarl and Marie Mattern filled in the musical 
program with several ])leasing songs. Carl also 
led singing en masse on the top deck. 

We did get home a wee bit late, but what's a 
couple of hours among friends ? 

We will all be able to live the picnic over again, 
for Jimmie Evanotf, of Kodak Park, was on the job 
with his movie camera and those who did not go 
can perhaps see the pictures and see what we .saw.

The Parcel Post Department Party 

On Friday evening of July 31 eighteen girls in the 
Parcel Post Department gave a party for Ruth 
Campbell, in honor of her birthday. 

Everybody enjoyed dancing, as well as other 
activities of the evening. 

Piano solos were given by Ruth Kriner and 
Florence Homan, and a violin solo by Esther Lusk. 

A cpiartet consisting of Florence Homan, Ger- 
aldine Hall, Ruth Kriner and Kathryn Gaylord 
sang several selections. 

Ruth received a beautiful gift of a silk mesh bag 
from the guests. 




"Our team?" replied the middie bloomer girl 
to the reporter's query. "Oh, they're comin' 
fine! Say — why don't you come around to the 
games and see for yourself? 

"Why, we haven't been going very long, you 
know — but, just give us time. That was a great 
Moonlight Dance we had — but, you were there, 
weren't you? Surei we had a dance together. 
Must 'a been about three hundred Kodakers on 
the good ship 'Glenn' that night, I'd say, wouldn't 
you? Well, anyway, we got enough out of it to 
get our uniforms. And had a good time, too. 

"Say, you don't know any good players around 
the building, do you? Tell 'em to look up our 
manager, Ruth Gill, in the Industrial Relations 
Department. We need 'em. 

"What's that? Going to put our picture in the 
Magazine this month? On page 4.j? We'll be 
looking for it. G'byel" 


The twelfth floor takes a lot of pride in its rotund 
repre.sentative on the Girls' Baseball team, .\ccord- 
ing to the "dope" gathered from the best sport 
critics, our little Bessie Leonard is about the most 
efficient shortstop that ever wore bloomers. Of 
course, girl-like, she has her share of the little 
vanities. Witness: this little incident which oc- 
curred in one of the recent practice games. 

Bessie was holding flown her position and absent- 
mindedly powdering her during a lull in tlic 
iiostilities. Suddenly a groimder came bounding 
over into her territory. This she jiromptly stojjped 
by sitting down on it. Regaining her feet quickly, 
she hurled her powder puff accurately to first husv. 
at the same time slipping the ball into her pocket. 
The "Ump" awarded the batter a home run on the 
ground that the ball had disappeared from sight 
and Bessie was credited with an assist. Everybody 
happy? Let's go!

A very much enjoyed reunion took place in 
Detroit a few weeks ago, when Ella Huck, Mayme 
Sweeney and Neva Potts, together with some of 
their friends, journeyed to that city and were met 
there by our old friend and associate, Julia Jowett, 
now Mrs. Harry Eckerson. 

EveljTi Montgomery and Marion Allen, of the

Hilda Bramer, of the Advertising Depart- 
ment, sjient her vacation with her eighty cousins at 
Fairchild, Wis. She was very v.-elcome there on 
account of the scarcity of farm help, but nevertheless 
we are glad to have her back again. 

Russel Goodwin, of the Stock Department, and 
Alice Schenkel of this city were married August

tell the world. 

The many friends of Elizabeth Teall, of the 
Credit Department, extend to her their sympathy 
and condolence on the death of her mother, which 
occurred July '•29th. 

We extend our sincere sympathy to Conrad 
Bainnann, of the Repair Department, whose 
mother died August 9th. 

Two others of our number have had sorrow in 
their homes this month. Mrs. Albrecht, wife of 
Otto Albrecht, affectionately known as "Cap," 
died July 31st, after a long illness; and Mrs. Sullivan, 
mother of Gertrude Sullivan, our Kodak reporter, 
died August 9th. The sympathy of all is with 
these friends in their sorrow. 

The sympathy of the Testing and Packing 
Department is extended to Helen Boyle, whose 
mother passed away July 30th. 19'-20, after a long 
illness. Helen is at home ill and her many friends 
hope for lier speedy recovery. 

.\delaide Meise spent her vacation at Old Forge, 
Xew York, and wrote of the beautiful moon- 
light on the lakes. Be careful, Adelaide! We 
don't want to lose vou yet. 

Mrs. Maud Scott, of the Maintenance Depart- 
ment, enjoyed a vacation in Canada. We warned 
her against "blowing bubbles" during her absence. 

Frank Strowger tells us that while at Sodus Bay 
on a vacation he landed some of the largest black 
bass ever drawn out of the water there. Good for 
you, Frank. Wonder what Quinlin caught.^ 

Mary Dissett spent a week at Sodus. 




T'other night the members of the Special Billing 
Department held a sausage roast on the sands of 
Lake Ontario, which caused (juite a stir in the lead- 
ing mosquito circles. In the event that you were 
unfamiliar with the fact that suc-h a department 
existed, we'll forgive you, for we are very young, in 
that we didn't see the light of day as a depart ment 
until a very few months previous to this writing. 
To return to the sausage roast: wlien it was known 
Ijy the mosquitoes that one was to he held, a meeting 
was called for the same night which was remarkable 
for its size considering the short notice. However, 
they were out in full force to greet us and their 
welcome was not lacking in warmth; in fact, it 
seemed as if Uad and Ma Mosquito and innumerable 
youngsters vied with each otiier in their attempts 
to make us feel perfectly at home. AVc all can 

vouch for the fact that they fared well enough to 
repay them for their efforts. We have since learned 
that the excitement caused in the insect world yvas 
the main topic of conversation for many days and 
as for "us victims" — we bore the marks for some 
time, and in fact, some of them still remain. Our 
party was made doubly interesting by the presence 
of the boss and his wife, who added greatly to the 
enjoyment of the evening by the singing of several 
duets which were highly appreciated. As they 
both possess unusually fine voices and are in great 
demand in local musical circles, we felt very for- 
tunate indeed in being privileged to listen to them, 
if but for a very few minutes. Taking it as a 
whole, the roast will remain in our memories for 
many a weary day when the carkin' cares of business 
would otherwise prove too great a strain. 


Mr. Potter, of the Advertising Department, has 
returned from sick leave, looking hale and hearty. 
He went 418 miles on 15 gallons of gasoline, and 
was arrested only once for speeding.' (The speed 
limit in that town was 3 miles per hour.) 

Gladys- Welch, who graduated in June from 
the University of Rochester, is a new member of 
the Advertising Department. Inasmuch as she 
compressed the regular four years college course 
into three years successfully, she may l)e viewed in 
the light of a phenomenon — one of many in that 

SUCKERS — one each — were the termination of 
an enjoyable party of Sales Department girls at 
the home of Adelaide Meise. There were lots of 
games, music, dancing and eats. The girls had

everyone found "Ad" a very hospital)le hostess.

DURING the last month the All- 
Kodaks, bolstered by the addition 
of two new players, and showing team 
work of the first order, have recorded 
two wins out of three games. During 
this period two contests have gone by 
the board on account of rain or wet 
grounds. On July 18th, the Brown- 
Lipe-Chapin Company, Syracuse indus- 
trial champions, came to Rochester 
for a return game with the local team, 
but a heavy downpour just before game 
time made the Kodak Park field unfit 
for play. 

One week later "Freddy" Blum, 
peerless matchmaker and power behind 
the throne for the Knights of Columbus, 
reaped a huge crop of joy when his team 
pushed over a 7 to 2 tally against the 
All-Kodaks, thus avenging the opening 
day score between these two teams. 
Loose work in the field was responsible 
for the defeat of our team. The invading 
Knights collected only six hits off the 
local pitching staff, but four of these 
went for two sacks.

On August 1st the All-Kodaks took 
their turn at playing the role of avenging 
angel, nosing out the Norwich Clothes 
on the Kodak Park field by a 6 to 5 score. 
Luk, who started in the box for the 
clothing makers, played the part of Santa 
Claus. Brodie was rushed to the rescue, 

but the five-run lead snatched by the 
Kodak team in the first tw^o innings 
proved just enough to win.

August 8th proved another disap- 
pointment to Kodak fans when the almost 
habitual Sunday rain storm spiked the 
scheduled game with the Big Brothers. 

The following w^eek, Sunday, August 
15th, Irwin's boys batted out another 
victory, this time over the North East 
Electrics. Pressley had the Electrics 
guessing, while McGrady's timely hitting 
pushed over the necessary tallies for the

For the last three games Harry 
("Dutch") Irwin, popular catcher of 
the Main Office team, has been managing 
the field work of the All-Kodaks, re- 
placing Harry Murphy, whose resignation 
was reluctantly accepted by the Executive 
Committee of the League. "Joe" Minella 
at first base and "Mac" McGrady at 
third have proved valuable in bolstering 
the All-Kodak infield. The outfielders 
are hitting better than at the start 
of the season and Manager Goodridge 
is looking for great work from his boys 
the rest of the season.

Have you taken a slant at our new 
third baseman, Earl MacGrady? "Mac" 
eats 'em up around the hot corner. At 
the bat, he's the original clean-up man. 
Just put three men on the sacks, and 
watch MacGrady connect. Usually good 
for two or three sacks, too! 

Kivell is covering a world of territory 
out there in center. "Charlie" pulled 
down a hard drive in the Norwich Clothes 
battle. When he came in to tlie bench 
he found a scout Avaiting who tried to 
sign him uj) for the big show. 

Joe Minella at first base is coming 
along fast, both in fielding and with the 
big stick. 

We're glad to see Lee Schlicht back 
from his two weeks' vacation up in the 
mountains. He ought to be good for 
several more wallops l^efore the season 

"Bennie" Levine is the boy who delivers 
in the Comedy League. 

Our pitching staff is living uji to its 
"rep." Forstbauer achieved his desired 
revenge against the clothing-makers, 
while Pressley held the team from the 
North East in the hollow of his hand. 

Bircher and Ingleby are working 
together in fine shape around short and 
second. Both of these men are fast 
fielders, and it takes a smart clout to 
get through the center of the infield. 

Lee Yoder has been coming through 
in the pinches with his trusty old Newark- 
made willow, and also pulling down the 
hard drives that come his way. Lee 
was late in arriving for the North East 
game. He had been on a triji to Erie, 
Pa., to take in the Oriental L O. O. F. 
Convention. The story he tells is that 
he went to sleep on the train, and woke 
up at Syracuse. How does it listen, 

Business Manager "Ed" Goodridge 
is looking after the men in fine shape. 
He has planned an attractive trip for 

Lal>or Day. A more popular manager 
would be hard to find. 

"Hank" Rohrer, our southpaw, is 
going to enter up at the University of 
Pennsylvania. Good luck, "Hank"! 

Penn is fortunate to have you on the rolls. 

Rubber games with the Norwich 
Clothes and Knights of Columbus are 
on the card for the last two Sundays in 
August. The September schedule will 
undoubtedly include a Labor Day trip 
and two or three more games with the 
best of the local semi-pros. A three- 
game series with Bausch & Lomb is the 
most attractive proposition wliich has 
yet appeared. 


Who? The Kodak Girls. What? The 
ball, of course. 

Have you seen them? Four teams of 
girls playing the grand old national 
game, right here in Kodak-town, too. 
Hawk-Eye and Kodak Park got ofl^ first, 
but the Main Office and Camera Works 
lassies are coming along. 

The Kodak Park girls have run up a 
great record, winning all their games 
except one to date. Hawk-Eye, Bastian 
Brothers, Camera Works, and Art-in- 
Buttons fell before their prowess until 
finally the Alderman-Fairchild girls came 
over and took the long end of a 4 to 'i 

At Hawk-Eye the girls took three 
games from Bastian Brothers and two 
from Main Office, losing to Wollensaks 
and Kodak Park. 

The ]Main Office and Camera Works 
girls are still not far from the practice- 
game stage, but they expect to teach the 
big fellows a thing or two before snow 
flies. This is the life — why wait for 
winter? Just take a slant at the ^Slain 
Office lassies on the preceding page. 




(a:\iera works and kodak park close behind 

lUGUST 15. ^Yith the season better 
-TV than two-thirds gone. George Bren- 
nan's Hawk-Eye team is still setting the 
j)ac'e in the Kodak League, leading the 
Camera Works outfit by three games. 
Since the August issue of The Kodak 
Magazine went to press, the St. Paid 
Street team has notched four victories 
and lost but one battle. 

Kodak Park and Camera Works are 
staging a merry fight for second place, 
with Camera Works slightly ahead, 
l)ecause of the fact that the Parkers 
have played and lost one more game 
than the State Street team. With from 
four to seven games yet to play, any one 
of these three teams still has a beautiful 
chance to nail the 1920 pennant to the 
factory flag pole some tin^e this month. 
Down below, Premo and the Main Office 
are having a great scrap to determine 
the occupancy of fourth place. Premo 
has been picking up. while the !Main 
Office has hit a slump and lost three 

An unfortunate combination of luck 
and erratic playing has served to keep 
the Graflex team still in the "no win" 
class. Time after time the Folmer boys 
have been nosed out by a single run. 
McCormick and Fleming have shown 
some very good pitching, but errors 
around the infield have lost several 
games which should have been chalked 
up on the right side of the ledger. 

Unfavorable weather conditions during 
the past month have compelled the 
j:)ostponement of a number of games, 
with the result that the League is now 
six games behind the schedule. The 
team managers are making every effort 
to work off these postponed games at 
night or as double headers so tliat the 
Kodak League cham])i()ns will be all set 
for the city title series with the winners 
of the Industrial League crown. This 
series is booked for the latter part of 
September and will j)r{)bably be a three- 

game aft'air. Our boys are out to avenge 
last year's beating at the hands of the 
North East Electrics and it is a pretty 
safe bet that any one of the three leading 
teams of the Kodak League will be able 
to give the Industrial winners a tough 
time of it in the series.

By "Mdrph" 
It is only natural that fans and teams alike 
should like to see the leaders trounced. The race 
in the Kodak League is so close, with Hawk-Eye 
leading by a single game, and Camera Works and 
Kodak Park following right behind, that no doubt 
the Kodak fans will be treated to some bitter and 
hard-fought contests before the end of the season. 

Manager Brennan, of Hawk-Eye, has selected 
one of the best-balanced teams in the League. 
The team record up to date speaks for itself. In 
Marcelle and Peterson he has one of the hardest 
working and most reliable batteries. Harry Moore 
at first base, Felerski at second, Ingleby for short, 
and Fox on third round out a smooth-working 
infield. All these boys are now playing a hard, 
consistent game. In the outfield, Hawk-Eye has 
three classy performers in Wiedeman, Boehm, and 
Levine. Wiedeman's work, especially, has been 
little short of brilliant. 

Manager Yoder, of the Camera Works, claims 
that the team that wins the pennant will have 
to beat his outfit. We agree with Yoder. He 
has a large number of players of more than average 
ability from which to make his selections, and 
battery material of the highest order. With Kline, 
Pressley, Roller, Kivell, Miller, and Millspaugh, 
the Camera Works team is certainly well fixed. 

Kodak Park, despite a couple of severe set-backs, 
is still in there with the old fight. This club has 
made the most remarkable showing of the season, 
considering that it was a tail-ender last year. 
Manager Bircher has worked hard in building up 
his team. Shepanski as catcher and Forstbauer, 
Gallagher, and Terhaar as pitchers present strong 
battery material, while the infield, showing Joe 
Minella, "Red" Hindt, Keenan and Manager 
Bircher, is the equal of any in the League. A trio 
of hard-hitting outfielders would make this team 
just about invincible. 

Main Office and Premo are having an interesting 
struggle for fourth place, with the odds slightly 
in favor of Seyfried's crowd, because they have 
a larger squad of players. 

Folmer-Century has yet to win a game, but from 
the way these boys have been crowding the leaders, 
they ought to break through soon. Against 
Hawk-Eye on August 1 1 the Graflex boys got away 
to a good start, scoring in the first inning. McCor- 
mick, as pitcher, has everything but support. 
"Pat" Petroske slapped one all the way to the bushes 
in Eastman Avenue for a home run in the third 
inning. Some hit, Pat! Let's hear from you again. 

Harry Moore tossed in a smart play in this game. 
Playing a deep first base, he snared a hard-hit 
groimd ball in short right, and threw to Felerski 
at first for the out. This is a play that is seldom 
seen even in the big leagues — a second baseman 
getting credit for a put-out at first, and the first 
baseman getting an assist on a ground ball. 


Delay on the part of some of the 
entrants in sending in their last three 
scores has forced the postponement of 
the Kodak golf tournament until this 
month. The Committee is working out 
handicaps for all the contestants, based 
on their last three scores. 

An entry fee of $1.00 is being charged, 
which will be used to provide prizes for 
the entrants turning in the lowest gross 
score and lowest net score, as well as for 
the second lowest gross and second lowest 

Since the last issue of the Magazine, 
a whole flock of would-be title holders 
have rushed to the entry-line, and it 
looks now as though quite a field would 
be in the running when the whistle blows. 

Well, just a few weeks more and we'll 
be hearing the well-known shouts: "All 
down!" or "Set 'em up in the other 
alley!" The old-timers are beginning 
to think longingly about dusting off 
the pins, and getting that old "hook" 
working again. And, the "rookies" will 
soon learn that strikes don't grow in the 
sewer. Pick the spares, boys ; they boost 
the little ol' total. 

Another month and the All-Kodaks 
will have hung up their suits and gone 
home, after their first season. And, 
then, unless some of the boys decide to 
form an All-Kodak football team, the 
name will pass into oblivion — until 
another summer. How about it, "Dutch" 
Irwin, "Charlie" Kivell, "Ned" Ogden, 
and the rest of you gridiron kings? 

Last winter four of the plants had 
girls' basketball teams, while the men at 
Kodak Park and Camera Works played 
the game. The Eastman Kodak Baseball 
League has weathered two successful 
seasons, while the Camera Bowling 
League has almost reached man's estate. 
Isn't it getting about time for the Kodak 
Basketball League — one for the girls 
and another for men?

OCTOBER, 1920 




Being a Short Account of the Beginnings of Photography 

WHO the actual father of photography 
is, historians do not agree. The 
Germans claim Schultze, the French 
Niepce, the English Wedgewood and 
Davy. All, however, are agreed that 
photography, as a practical art, dates 
from the daguerreotype 
and the paper processes 
of Fox Talbot. 

Schultze claim is based on 
his observation of the 
sensitiveness of silver to 
light, and the fact that he 
actually obtained copies 
of ^Titing on surfaces of 
chalk and silver nitrate. 
This was in 1727. Silver 
nitrate, however, was 
known as early as the 
Eighth Century, and the alchemists of the 
Sixteenth Century, in their search for a 
means of transmuting baser metals to 
gold, had observed the sensitiveness to 
light of various silver compounds. The 
difference is that Schultze brought to 
these observations, probably for the first 
time, scientific methods of orderly inquiry 
and careful experiment. 

WEDGEWOOD. The Schultze clue 
was not followed up for the purpose of 
picture making until 1802, when Wedge- 
wood thought to find a short cut to 
silhouette making — then a popular form 
of portraiture — by printing the profiles 
of sitters on a surface prepared with 
silver nitrate. He also tried to take 
photographs in a "camera obscura" — 
the original of our photographic camera, 
and consisting of a box with a lens at 
one end and a ground glass at the other. 

fi yHIS i.s the fir.sf of a series 
J- of articles on the history of 
photography in general, and of 
our company in particular. 

The series will be as non- 
technical as possible and ^cill 
deal in a most entertaining man- 
ner icitk the growth of photog- 
raphy and with the highly 
important part our company has 
had in its development. 

The "camera obscura" was an early 
discovery, and was at first nothing more 
than a darkened room into which light 
was admitted through a hole and images 
thrown on the wall opposite. Portable 
types, fitted with a lens, followed and 
for years became the 
showman's stock in 
trade, crowds flocking to 
see the beautiful images 
thrown on the ground 

DAVY. Wedgewood's 
experiment consisted in 
substituting a prepared 
paper for the ground 
glass, but silver nitrate 
which he used was not 
sensitive enough to yield 
very satisfactory results. 
Sir Humphrey Davy, who continued 
Wedgewood's experiments, tried chlo- 
ride of silver instead of nitrate, and was 
more successful. These pictures have the 
interest of being the first made by means 
of a lens on photographic material, but 
in the absence of a "fixing" process had 
little or no practical value. Davy notes 
this fact in his account of the experiments, 
lamenting that: "Nothing but a method 
of preventing the unshaded parts from 
being colored by exposure to the day is 
wanting to render this process as useful 
as it is elegant." 

HYPO. The problem of "fixing" was 
not solved until 183J) when Sir John 
Herschel recommended to Daguerre his 
own discovery of twenty years earlier, 
hyposulphite, since familiar to all the 
photographic world as "hypo." 


SIEFCE. With Daguerre photog- 
raphy began in earnest. Daguerre was 
a celebrated scene painter, and Hke 
many other artists of his day, used the 
"camera obscura" for sketching jjiu-poses. 
The desire to fix permanently these 
camera images — probably with the idea 
that their production would open a 
profitable business, for Daguerre was a 
capable business man as well as an 
artist — led him to experiment in photo- 
graphic processes. Xiepce, with whom 
he formed a partnership, had, as early 
as 1815, begun photographic experiments 
to find a method of automatically copying 
designs upon lithographic stones, to save 
the tedious work of the draughtsmen. 
From stone he passed eventually to 
tin, pewter, silver and even glass. The 
sensitive substance that he was most 
successful with was bitumen, which he 
dissolved to form a varnish and applied 
as a film on the surface to be treated. 
The parts acted upon by light were less 
soluble, he found, and on applying a 
weak solvent these remained on the plate, 
and with due care a picture was obtained, 
the film left corresponding to the light 
or white parts of the subject; the white 
metal, in the pictures produced on silver, 
to the dark portions or shadows. Iodine 
was then used to darken the silver, and 
when the remaining film was dissolved 
away the white silver underneath would 
represent the lights. Niepce not only 
got his pictures but succeeded in fixing 
them, and those still in existence show 
little or no deterioration. 

DAGUERRE. Daguerre, on the other 
hand, used the silver, darkened on its 
surface by iodine fumes, as the sensitive 
surface. His process consisted in expos- 
ing the polished surface of a silvered 
copper plate to the fumes of iodine until 
it was coated with a compound of silver 
and iodine. The plate was then exposed 
in the camera and developed over a dish 
of gently warmed mercury. The mercury 
vapor was deposited on these parts where 
the light had acted in a graduating scale, 
the amount deposited varying according 

to the extent to which the part had been 
affected. In this way lights and shades 
were well reproduced. The silver iodide 
was then dissolved away by "hypo" just 
as negatives and silver prints are fixed 

The plates were eventually made more 
sensitive by the use of bromine in addition 
to iodine, and a portrait lens devised 
by Petzval still further reduced the very 
long exposure necessary. But the process 
was still slow — the first portrait made in 
America for instance — that of Miss 
Catherine Draper, was exposed for six 
minutes in strong daylight with the face 
thickly powdered to facilitate exposure. 
With a single plate for each picture the 
process was also costly, but in spite of 
these handicaps the new art was popular 
and daguerreotypists multiplied and plied 
their trade successfully until 1851, when 
the collodion process was introduced. 

EOX TALBOT. In the process of 
Fox Talbot, an English contemporary of 
Daguerre, called "calotype," paper was 
impregnated with silver iodide, and shortly 
Ijefore exposure washed over with a 
mixed solution of silver nitrate and 
gallic acid. The image was developed 
by washing the paper with more of the 
gallic acid and silver solution and warm- 
ing it before the fire. From the negatives 
produced, prints were made in much the 
same way as now. 

Up to this time the sensitive silver 
compounds, it will be noticed, were used 
either on a metal plate or on paper. 
Negatives on glass plates were not made 
practicable until 1848, when Niepce de 
Saint Victor, nephew of the first Niepce, 
worked out a method of using a film of 
albumen to support the sensitive com- 
pound on glass. In 1851 Frederick 
Archer Scott introduced collodion in 
place of albumen. This collodion process, 
popularly known as the "wet plate," 
superseded all others and made possible 
and practicable the profession of photog- 
raphy as we understand it today.

IT appears that our philanthropic 
friend, over in the land of the cod 
and the home of the bean, didn't have 
any new scheme at all, at all, but just 
worked the old "come on" game, and the 
ever present crop of suckers fell for it to 
the tune of millions of dollars. 

We, so far, haven't heard of any of 
the Rochester folks "investing" with 
this gentleman, but almost any time you 
can walk up or down our main thorough- 
fare and find a crowd in some temporarily 
rented store paying good money, hard 
earned, or harder saved, money for shares 
in a glass suspender company, or some- 
thing else of an equally questionable 

You cannot get something for nothing; 
the only successful on record is the 
one where Willie Jones got a licking for 
something his twin brother did — dad 
couldn't tell 'em apart, so he licked them 

If you feel an impulse to go into some 
of these things, don't just take the word 
of some promoter for it ; look into it care- 
fully — and then the chances are you will 
stay out. 

Our legal department can help you on 
this. If you should happen to be a bit 
timid about asking them, ask the editor 
(nobody is afraid of an editor) and he wuU 
ask them for vou. 

The vicious circle of unthrift: did you 
ever stop to follow it around? It is 
stated that two-thirds of the world's 
supply of diamonds is owned in the United 
States. About one-fourth of this two- 
thirds is in the possession of persons who 
work for a living with their own hands. 

A very large percentage came into the 
possession of their present owners during 
or since the war — from the proceeds from 
the sale of Liberty Bonds. 

You heard "diamonds are a good invest- 
ment, they are going up and up in price." 
But they carry no coupons. Sure they 
went up in price and probably will 
continue to do so, but when you want to 
sell you find a different story. The 
dealer in very few instances will buy them 
back from you; if he does, it will be at a 
big discount, so the usual recourse is to 
the pawnshop. The pawnshop will 
cheerfully advance you a hundred dollars 
per carat, and your dream of the perma- 
nent value of portable property is over. 

Hang on to your bonds; they are an 
anchor of safety; they are backed by the 
strongest and richest nation on the earth. 

The temporary slump in the price of 
bonds has been largely due to the flooding 
of the market by improvident and unwise 

The crest of the wave of foolish extrava- 
gance has passed — the bonds will come 
into their own — and soon.

YOU have journeyed through the 
Camera Works, and the Hawk-Eye 
plant, and so are now quite famihar 
with the manufacture of Kodaks, 
Brownies, and the lenses that produce 
the picture image. 

Of equal importance is the substance 
or thing that will catch and retain the 
image produced by the lens. 

So let us journey to Kodak Park and 
find out a bit how the film, the Kodak 
ammunition, is produced, as well as the 
thousands and thousands of miles of 
motion picture film. 

^Slany different raw products enter 
into the manufacture of Kodak film 
and every process demands the highest 
skill and most exacting care. 

Bales and bales of cotton are required 
for the making of the thin, transparent 
backing on which the light-sensitive 
picture-making coating is spread. A 
darky in the cotton field today may be, 
for all he knows, pulling the cotton 
for his next season's shirt, or for a motion 
picture film he will later see produced 
when he goes to town. 

And did you know that the image you 
see when you hold a Kodak negative 
to the light is composed of silver — 
the real stuff? 

At Kodak Park some two tons of 
silver bullion are used each week for 
making the sensitive coating. Two tons 
a week — close to four million troy ounces 
a year — almost the total output of silver 
from Arizona, one of the largest silver- 
producing States in the Union. 

We are the largest consumers of silver 
in the United States, aside from the 
United States Mint. 

Besides the silver and cotton, various 
acids are required for treating the cotton 
and silver, all of which are manufactured 
in huge quantities at the Park. Organic 
solvents, including alcohol and other 
liquids, are required for converting the 
nitrated cotton into a honev-like fluid. 

from which the thin film base is produced, 
and lastly the gelatine and compounds 
for making the sensitive coating. 

Illustration No. 1 

For convenience in following the process 
of manufacture, let us divide it into 
four parts: First, the chemical preparation 
of raw materials such as the cotton and 
silver. Second, spreading of the support 
or cellulose backing for the sensitive 
emulsion. Third, spreading the emulsion 
on the support. Fourth, the slitting of 
the large film rolls into stock sizes, 
inspection and packing for shipment. 

Everywhere at Kodak Park absolute 
orderliness and cleanliness is evident 
and this is absolutely necessary for the 
production of high quality sensitized 
products such as Kodak film. 

High average quality — uniformity — 
is another absolute requisite. 

The greatest of care is exercised in 
the selection of the raw material. It 
is all subjected to repeated tests and 
examinations, and if it cannot come up 
to our high standard it is rejected. 

Let us follow a bale of cotton in its 
journey. After being carefully cleansed 


Illustration No. -2— WASHING COTTON 

and prepared to render it soluble, it is 
passed through a huge drying machine 
to remove moisture. 

The cotton after being dried is then 
placed in special machines called nitrating 
centrifugals, when the cotton is mixed 
with the nitrating acids. 

The acids act upon the cotton so that 
later it is dissolved into a honev-like 

substance called "dope" at the Park. 
This is then formed into a transparent 
sheet which is the film base upon which 
the sensitive emulsion is coated. 

After being treated with the acids, 
such cotton, when washed and dried, is 
called nitrated cotton. One of the 
nitrating machines is shown in Illustration 
Xo. 1. 




After removal from the nitrating 
machine the cotton is taken to a large 
tank, where it undergoes a thorough 
washing. The cotton is again placed 
in one of the centrifugals and washed, 
and then taken to another tank and 
thoroughly washed so as to remove 
every trace of acid. 

The cotton is now ready to be taken 
into solution by the organic solvents 
when it changes into a thick fluid like 
honey or "dope." 

This ""dope" is passed through an 
elaborate system of filters and is finally 
spread in thin layers on highly polished 
wheels which form parts of immense 
machines several stories high and weigh- 
ing approximately 150 tons. When dried 
it has become the familiar transparent 
baclving upon which the sensitive material 
is later coated. 

In designing these huge dope spreading 
machines our engineers achieved a 
distinct triumph. 

In spite of their mammoth size, the 
accuracy is such that in a roll of film 
base as it comes from the machine 33/2 
feet wide by 2,000 feet long, the variation 
in thickness is not more than one-cjuarter 
of a thousandth of an inch from end to 

Two thicknesses of this support are 
made, one being .003 inch thick for the 
ordinary N. C. or Kodak film, and the 
other .005 inch thick for motion jiicture 

The silver which we use in such 
immense quantities is the purest that 
can be obtained. The silver comes to 
us in bars weighing about 500 troy 
ounces. As needed the bars of silver 
are placed in large porcelain crocks 
containing dilute nitric acid. Silver ni- 
trate in solution is thus formed, which 
in the following step is evaporated to 
crystallization. The silver solution is 
poured into evaporating disju's and 
placed on steam tables to hasten 
evaporation. After a certain amount 
of the silver nitrate has been cry.stallized, 
the crystals and the liquifl remaining. 

which is called the mother liquor, are 
poured off into draining dishes, which 
allow the mother liquor to drain off. 
The crystals are redissolved and 
recrystallized until all impurities are 
removed, in order to have the final run a 
one hundred per cent i)ure product. 

Illustration No. 4 

The pure white crystals are now placed 
in draining baskets, and then are placed 
in shallow glass trays and allowed to 
dry, at first on ojien racks and then in 
drying closets. They are finally placed 
in covered jars and stored until needed. 

Next comes the production of the 
light sensitive emulsion. To make this 
emulsion a silver nitrate solution is 
mixed with a .solution of potassium bro- 
mide and gelatine dissolved in hot water, 
thus forming insoluble silver bromide 
in the solution, which is the compound 
that is sensitive to light.

In every business concern, large or 
small, there is on the part of every in- 
dividual, a natural eagerness and desire 
to get ahead and. more or less rivalry 
ensues as a result. It is a great mistake, 
however, to have uppermost in the mind, 
the idea of beating the other fellow to it, 
some particular friend, associate or neigh- 
bor. Such rivalry easily breeds animosity 
and trouble. 

The surer way is to get ahead of your- 
self each day — never mind the other fel- 
low. Get ahead of yourself each day by 
improving on the day before, by surpas- 
sing that day's record, by being more 
eager, more cheerful, more attentive to 
your work and being more of a man. 

Each of us has his own idea of the goal, 
little or big, which he wishes to attain. 
It's up to every individual one of us, not 
the other fellow, to reach that goal. 

Talk about reasoning in a circle. Did 
you ever notice that a mouse is afraid of a 
man, a man is afraid of a woman, and a 
woman is afraid of a mouse? 




THE large financial institutions dealing 
with the investing class have to have 
absolutely accurate knowledge of condi- 
tions in general, and to be able to fore- 
cast, as far as is humanly possible, how 
present conditions will affect the future. 
This knowledge must be based on facts, 
and absolutely uncolored by political or 
other bias. 

It is in a way unfortunate that many 
of us do not have access to this informa- 
tion, and so must depend for guidance 
upon information not always so reliable. 

It so happens that we receive the 
monthly news letter of the National City 
Bank of New^ York, and from their 
September issue we quote the following: 

"The general business situation in our 
opinion has been developing in a satis- 
factory manner during the past month, 
although this does not mean that present 
conditions are all that could be desired. 
It means that the general trend is toward 
normal and permanent conditions, and 
that existing disorders are no greater than 
might be expected in accomplishing the 
adjustments that are necessary. The 
crops are fine, which is a good foundation 
for domestic business and for international 
relations. The railroad situation has 
improved decidedly' during the past 
month, and although far from satisfactory 
gives promise of gradual betterment. 
There is a better feeling in banking circles 
as to the credit situation, although money 
will remain tight. The recession of 
industrial activity which is under way is 
not severe enough to be alarming, but is 
incidental to finding a lower level of 
prices. The abundant crops have accom- 
plished a general price reduction in food- 
stuffs and the raw materials of clothing. 
With the exception of sugar, which has 
declined about 10 cents per pound in the 
last two months, the important food 
staples are either as low as or lower than 
a year ago. Meat products are lower, 
flour and vegetables about the .same. 

fruits lower, coffee less than one-half the 
price of a year ago. Raw cotton has 
declined about 10 cents per pound in the 
last two months, wool even more, hides 
and leather more, raw silk about 70 per 
cent in six months. The markets for 
textile goods have been paralyzed by these 
declines in raw materials, but declines 
have taken place in many important 

"Over the industrial field the general 
trend of prices is downward, and the 
pressure is slackening, with an increase 
of unemployment. An abundance of 
labor was available for the harvest, and 
it is probable that some of the labor which 
has been attracted from the farms during 
the last five years will now return and 
remain. The period of acute scarcity 
both for goods and for labor appears to 
be over and a competitive situation is 
developing. It is well that there shall be 
general recognition of the fact that the 
upward movem'ent has run its course and 
that further wage and price advances are 

"It was a mistake when the war ended 
to think that an immediate readjustment 
upon a lower level of values would be 
effected; there was a great shortage of 
goods and a backed up demand for labor 
which promptly absorbed all that was 
released from the armies and war indus- 
tries. Hence the quick revival of business 
and the rise of wages and prices in 1919. 
That situation was as abnormal and as 
temporary in character as the industrial 
situation of the war time. 

"As in the case of house-building, this 
work may be checked by the rising costs, 
but that only means that costs must come 
down, with the assurance that as they 
decline activity will revive. 

"There is a slackening in the demand 
for our products abroad and an increase 
in our own importations, both of which 
changes have an influence for lower prices 
in our markets. 



"It must be remembered that the 
highest prosperity for every interest is 
to be found in a state of balanced indus- 
try, in which everybody is employed and 
buying freely of the products of others. 
Idleness anywhere in the industrial circle 
affects everybody in that circle unfavor- 
ably, and full employment everywhere 
means that products must be exchange- 
able on the normal, accustomed, basis. 
If one class of products falls, the producers 
of that group will be able to buy less of 
the products of others unless the latter 
come down also. The resolution of this 
or that group as to what they will have 
for their seryices amounts to little when 
the buying power of the other groups 
decline. A wage-earner who is working 
only half the time at the old rate may 
assure himself for a while that his wages 
have not been reduced, but the truth will 
eventually find its way home. 

"At this time, when the industries and 
exchanges of the whole world are out of 
balance, and there is great need for 
patience and co-operation among all 
classes, ill-feeling is constantly stimulated 
by hasty and uninformed comment. 
People write and talk loosely, often with- 
out knowledge of the facts they discuss 
and still more often without intelligent 
comprehension of the economic laws 
which are involved. The natural economic 
law is always working to restore normal 
conditions, but time is required for its 
operations, and meanwhile the impatient 
people are wanting to adopt arbitrary 
measures, which usually have all sorts 
of results not anticipated and which 
interfere with the natural processes of 

"The public does not like to pay high 
prices, particularly when it believes that 
they yield large profits, and yet, as 
already indicated, profits afford the most 
certain means by which prices are reduced. 
The real social problem of the present 
time is how to bring home to the average 
man the fact that an abundant supply of 
all things that he is wanting is dependent 
upon the accumulation of capital, not 

necessarily in his own hands, but in any 
hands that will use it effectively in pro- 

"The fundamental reason for the high 
prices, and that increasing wages do not 
overtake rising prices, is that there is a 
scarcity of capital, or in other words a 
scarcity of the means of production and 
distribution. It is well understood that 
the limiting condition upon industry in 
this country today is the state of the 
railroads. They have not been kept up 
to the growth of the country. This 
means that thousands of men must work 
for years, building cars, locomotives and 
switch tracks to get the railroads into 
shape to handle the traffic that is offered. 
These men must be paid for this work, the 
money amounting to billions of dollars 
must be ready as they do their work, and 
must come from an available surplus, 
accumulated by somebody. So also 
billions of capital are wanted for the 
building of houses, and for other con- 
struction work, needed to provide for the 
comfort of the population. Of all the 
many proposals offered for improving the 
living conditions of the people, there is 
not one which does not require capital; 
they are all conditioned upon somebody 
having a surplus which can be obtained 
either by inducing him to give or invest, or 
by taxation. Not everybody recognizes 
that even taxation requires that some- 
body shall have acquired a surplus, but 
that is evidently the case." 


It is great sport, indeed, for the children 
to rake up the fallen leaves and make 
bonfires. Hardly an autumn season goes 
by but what some Rochester children are 
seriously burned as a result of their 
clothing catching fire from bonfires. 

Warn your children against this hazard. 
If there are leaves to be done away with, 
better rake them into a little pile and have 
the street cleaner cart them away, than 
have your child bearing a life marked 
evidence of someone's carelessness. 




FIRST it was one. then along came 
another, then there were two. Now 
the Camera Works Gardeners Association 
has added a third successive win to its 
well started series of first prize premiums. 
Yes, the Camera ^Yo^kers will always 
have one thing to speak of boastfully — 
their prize winning gardens. 

If you have ever grown anytiung in 
\ our two by four back yard or on your 
acre farm, you know that the quality, as 
a whole, of the vegetables grown this year 
was on a higher plane than that of last 
year. And when such concerns as Bausch 
& Lomb, General Railway Signal Com- 
pany. Art-In-Buttons, American Wood- 
working Machinery, National Brass Com- 
pany and our colleague, Hawk-Eye, 
gather together the best types and varie- 
ties from their many gardens, you can 
easily imagine how meritorious the 
Camera Works Garden exhibit had to be 
in order to land on top of all competitors. 

"Some 'ternips' and lookit them squash 
— I mean them over there with the long 
necks. But what are these? Oh yes, 
tomatoes." were some of the remarks 
made about the perfect display of the 
Camera Works quality-through-and- 
throuah vegetables. 


Much credit is due the Camera Works 
Home Gardeners Association for the man- 
ner in which they planned and put across a 
prize winning exhibit. High Class is the 
best term that could be used to denote the 
quality of the garden specialties displayed. 




152,750. That's the official attend- 
ance record for the Rochester Industrial 
Exposition, 1920. Every other person in 
the city — and it's a pretty safe bet that 
all but about fifty of 'em spent at least 
a moment giving the Kodak booth the 
o. o. According to "Doc" Haskell and 
H. J. Potter, of the Advertising Depart- 
ment, who had charge of the exhibit, this 
throng of visitors volleyed about a million 
cjuestions, ranging all the way from 
youngsters who wanted to see a Brownie, 
to the ultra-ambitious amateurs who 
started arguments about the relative 
merits of a No. 9 Premo and a Speed 

But the job was not devoid of human 
interest features either. Early in the 
week, "Doc" was trying to entertain a 
couple of winsome lasses who seemed 
particularly interested in his booth. One 
of them was shown half a dozen different 
Kodaks before she found the one she 
wanted. And, then, turning to her com- 

panion, she said: "Look, Betty! See 
that name-plate? Well, I punch the 
holes in those!" And, satisfied with this 
proof of craftsmanship, the pair sauntered 
away — jjerhaps to the Horse Show — or 
the Midway — or to follow the jazz lure of 
the peristyle. Who knows? Perhaps, 
even, they went to see the Camera Works 
and Hawk-Eye garden exhibits. 

Perchance the next caller would be a 
lens-grinder from Hawk-Eye or a maker 
of aerial cameras. At any rate, Kodak 
workers, one and all stopped for a glance 
at the exhibit. It lacked the spectacular 
and somewhat martial apj^eal of last 
year's aerial display, but it showed 
Kodaks of every size and for every pur- 
pose, supported by advertising pictures, 
representing the highest cjuality of photo- 
graphic art. The Kodak exhibit occupied 
the same section which has been allotted 
to it in former years, and proved once 
more a Mecca for Kodak workers. 




A CENTURY ago Benjamin Franklin 
said that "'people who live in the 
forest, in open barns or with open win- 
dows do not catch cold, and that the 
disease called a cold is generally caused 
hy impure air, lack of exercise or over- 
eating." What he set forth tlien is a 
proven fact today. 

In a very large measure, colds are due 
to a state of low resistance brought about 
either by fatigue, eating too much, con- 
stipation or lack of exercise and fresh 

There are always present in the mucous 
membrane of the nose and throat, germs 
which if given a chance will cause an 
inflammation or infection of this mem- 
brane. This is called a cold in the head, 
or throat or chest. So long as our bodies 
remain in a healthy condition, these 
germs will not attack us. Now what 
gives these bugs the chance they need to 
set up an infection or a cold? Anything 
which injures or irritates the mucous 
membrane. There are two causes, in- 
ternal or external. The external, such 
as gases, air that is stale, too hot or too 
dry, dust, or exposure to another bad 
cold. (Yes, colds are always contagious; 
so watch out when your neighbor coughs 
or sneezes.) 

The internal causes, or lack of proper 
body function, consist of insufficient 
elimination of waste matter, too much 
food, being over fatigued and not getting 
sufficient rest and exercise. All these 
things have a direct effect on the delicate 
membranes and lowers their resistance. 

Exposure to cold air and drafts is not 
nearly so harmful as is usually thought. 
Drafts against some exposed part of the 
body causing a local cliill may })e harm- 
ful, but a gentle draft if one is moving 
about or not over-heated, such as in 
good ventilation, is extremely desirable. 
Those who become friends with moving 
air and keep their body toned up to pitch 
soon become immune to colds. It is a 

well-known fact and often spoken of that 
those who live out in the open never 
experience colds, but as soon as 
same people return to civilization. crowded 
cities, congested gathering places and 
public conveyances with dust and gases 
and the all-too-frequent lack of pure air 
and sufficient exercise to eliminate waste, 
they often get inflammation of the nose 
and throat and sometimes severe colds. 
This is at least one good argument in 
favor of fresh air. 

If you are living carefully and still have 
frequent colds, you should have your 
doctor look for nasal obstruction or 
gro\\i:hs which are sometimes the cause 
of recurrent colds. 

Nobody wants a cold, so why not begin 
now by building up a defense against 
such an evil. It can be done if you will 
"watch your step." 

First, keep the digestion good by never 
over-eating. Proper diet, plenty of water 
between meals and careful attention to 
the bowels are most helpful. Intestinal 
contents become dangerous by being re- 
tained too long. Putrifying fecal matter 
contains poisons which are harmful to 
the body. Abnormal conditions of the 
intestines are largely responsible for the 
common headache, general lowered re- 
sistance resulting in colds and other more 
serious ailments. And remember, it is 
better to control this body function by 
proper habit than by resorting to drugs. 

Second, keep the whole body surface 
clean and accustomed to cool water so 
that it will not be shocked by cold air. 
If you can stand it, you should gradually 
discard all woolen underwear. Half- 
wool or all cotton is best. Never sleep in 
the same clothes worn during the day. 
These should be hung up to air at night 
and the night clothes aired during the day. 
Use fresh air in every possible way. 

Third, avoid too much heat. Sixty- 
five degrees is sufficient when moving 
about and sixty-eight to seventy for those 



who are sitting down. Avoid sudden 
changes in temperature, demand good 
ventilation, cultivate an appetite for pure 
air. You wouldn't care to bathe in 
another's bath, why bathe your lungs in 
another's soiled air? Practice deep breath- 
ing and try to increase your lung capacity. 
"One hundred deep breaths a day," is 
one physician's prescription for avoiding 
tuberculosis. Is it worth the trial. ^ It 
may prevent simple colds too. 

Fourth, of late, vaccines have been 
used for the prevention of colds and to a 
certain extent have been successful. 
are given in the same manner as the 
vaccine against typhoid fever which was 

used so extensively in the Army, and gives 
an immunity against the common cold 
for a period of about one winter. The 
Medical Department stands ready at all 
times to give advice concerning sucli 
things and wishes to co-operate in every 
way possible to reduce the number of 
colds per capita. 

And lastly, you know the particular 
father who was careful to instruct his 
son, "Now, Jakie don't shteal whatefer 
you do, don't shteal. But, Jakie, if you 
must shteal, don't get caught." So don't 
catch cold, but if you must catch cold. 
or should — well, perhaps the Medical 
Department might help you. 


IX the July number of The Kodak Mag- 
az/^? appeared an article concerning the 
loans offered by the Kodak Employees 
Association (Incorporated) to employees 
who are contemplating the purchase of 
homes. That article contained a warning 
against signing any purchase offer which 
does not contain a statement that the 
offer is conditional upon the employee 
being able to secure a loan from the Kodak 
Employees Association (Incorporated) in 
a named amount. 

In spite of that warning, .several em- 
ployees who were expecting to obtain 
loans from the Association have signed 
offers without such a statement. Later 
when through over valuation of the prop- 
erty the Association refused to grant the 
loan, employees discovered that 
they could not get back the money they 
had deposited with the real estate broker. 
In one instance in addition to his deposit 
the employee had to pay the .seller a con- 
siderable sum to recompense him (the 
seller) for legitimate expenses to which 
he had been put relying on the sale. 

This is a very regrettable state of 
affairs and in order to correct it as much 
as possible a bulletin was recently issued 
stating that employees expecting to obtain 
loans for the purchase of homes should 

sign no papers until they had been ap- 
proved by the Legal Department. There- 
fore, when you decide on the house you 
wish to buy, and the real estate agent <»r 
the owner asks you to sign an offer or to 
make a deposit, do neither until you have 
brought the paper to the Legal Depart- 
ment. This may take a little longer but 
it is the only safe way. 

It appears to be a regrettable but 
common trait in human nature that 
people who work hard and long to get 
together savings with which to invest in 
some worthy object often seem almost 
anxious to part with some of those savings 
without proper protection to themselves. 

Incidentally it should be borne in mind 
that the only reason why the Kodak 
Employees Association has refused to 
grant any application for a loan which 
comes within the terms of its plan of 
making loans is that the property is not 
worth the price asked. In other words, 
the Association is working for the protec- 
tion of the individual employee as well as 
for the .safeguarding of the funds com- 
mitted to its care. 

Employees purchasing homes relying 
on loans from any source should not sign 
a purchase offer or make a deposit with- 
out .^r.sY consulting the Legal Department .

Well, what did you think of it? Wasn't it the 
best exhibit we have ever staged? This was the 
opinion of people outside of the Camera Works, 
and also the verdict of Mr. Metcalfe, the famous 
judge from Irondequoit. Many of us can remember 
the first exhibit the Association staged in 1915 in 
the now obsolete dining room, and it seems almost 
a joke when we compare the cjuality of the exhibits 
now to those on show "in the good old days."" Then 
a carrot was a carrot, but now it has to be an 
aristocrat and then some, before the boys will 
even attempt to enter in competition! Of course, 
some people were heard to remark, "If I had shown 
mine, I could have won easy,"" but all of that surmise 
is up to them to prove, and, as a visitor told us, it 
was almost impossible to imagine more perfect 
specimens than those on display. 

There were one hundred fifty-three entries in the 
single classes, and seven entries in the collective 
display, the latter display totaling one hundred 
forty vegetables. The exhiliits included native 
vegetables from European Countries, and a very 
interesting assortment of dried beans peculiar to 

Italy. Possibly the most striking feature of the 
exhibit was the collection of Fred Brehm, President 
of the Association, whose display caused great 
comment. With forty-nine distinct and different 
types of vegetables, and all of them prize winning 
stock, no wonder the 19'-20 Show was a record!

Attention: Department Reporters 
The Kodak Magazine has established a reputation 
in the industrial world, and we are proud to know 
that it is onrs. and that each article and "squib" is 
contributed by an employee. 

The idea of department reporters is another phase 
of democratic management, as far as it tends to 
give expression to the individual man or woman 
who. in big business, would be otherwise merged 
into a one-man opinion. 

For the benefit of employees having interesting 
items or articles for publication, a list of reporters

We are fortunate in having so many opportunities 
in this city for self-advancement, through the 
medium of education as given in Evening Scliools. 
The Mechanics Institute is widely famous for its 
extended curriculum, and it is j)articularly noted 
for classes in Mechanical Drawing and Machine 
Shop Practice. Last year G'2 Camera Workers 
enrolled at the Mechanics school, and most of those 
who really tried, and attended punctually, gained 
their diplomas. This coming season should be a 
record l)y way of enrollment, and you are urged to 
give your immediate attention to this matter, as the 
accommodation for evening students is limited. 

The Public Schools offer a varied list of studies, 
and full information can be obtained in the Indus- 
trial Relations Department on any matter pertain- 
ing to education for men or women. 

The fees range from "gratis" to twenty dollars, 
but the knowledge gained is of inestimable value. 
The fallacy of a man or woman "having a drag" has 
long been exploded, and, to succeed, it is vital that 
we must have knowledge. No truer phrase has 
ever been coined than "knowledge is power," and 
the long winter evenings can be made a splendid 
investment by attending school. 

In last month's issue of the Kodak Magazine we 
missed "Bob" Weber's famous slogan of "Watch 
the Kodak Park team win the Baseball Pennant." 
We suggest that Bob consult an Ouija Board before 
coining any more "prophecies." 

If the Managers of the big Leagues missed attend- 
ing the baseball game between the Kodak Assem- 
blies and the Brownies, they are "out of luck" for 
first-class new material. According to veterans of 
the game, a finer match was never played, and 
judging by the score, both sides were balanced to a 
hair — until the ninth inning. The game was fought 
at Bausch & Lomb Athletic Field, the line-up being 
as follows: 

Kodaks Brownies 

F.Kline P J. Rutan 

B. Clark C C. FreudenvoU 

H. Verstrung 1st B W. Powell 

F. Gordon 'ind B W. Ring 

H. McKague ;}rd B D. La Palm 

W. Sharkey S.S W. Korhumel 

K. Naramore C B. Ford 

F. Dugan L.F J. Mevers 

R. Bach R.F W. Rice 

The excitement was great, there being a crowd 
of Tooters numbering seven hundred and fifty. 

There was no score until the ninth inning, when 
McKague scored a three bagger, and then the grand- 
stand threatened to give way under the wild 
tumult of the Kodaks. Their ardor, however, was 
dampened by the Brownies, who, scoring a run in 
the last half of the ninth, won the game bv a margin 
of 1-0. 







For the third consecutive year the Employees 
Gardening Association has won the challenge cup 
in the Industrial Competition at the Rochester

to the fact that the individual members of the 
Association take a personal interest in maintaining 
the Camera Works reputation of "doing things 

The challenge cup is in open competition. Any 
Industrial Garden Club in Monroe County is 
eligible to enter their exhibit, and those concerns 
which enter the race try hard for the honors. It is 
by no means an easy contest to win, for not only 
must there be perfect quality, but there must also 
be as much A-ariety as possible. When we boast of 
twenty-six named varieties of tomatoes alone, folks 
begin to realize that we have to be "Johnnie on the 
spot" to get one hundred per cent. Three expert 
judges — supplied by the Committee of Agriculture 
— minutely inspected the exhibits, and after an 
almost all day session finally tagged the coveted 
blue ticket on our display. 

There were eight Garden Clubs competing this 
year for the magnificent cup donated by Mr. Delos 
Wray, and all of them were good ones. The follow- 
ing firms were represented: 

Hawk-Eye Works. E. K. Co. 

Camera Works, E. K. Co. 

Vacuum Oil Co. 

National Brass Co. 

American Woodworking Machine Co. 

Art-In-Buttons. Inc. 

Bausch & Lomb Optical Co. 

General Railway Signal Co. 
After the exhibit was clo.sed at the Camera Works 
the choicest specimens were carefully preserved 
for the Exposition. Almost everyone's vegetables 
entered for the exhibit went to make up the Exposi- 
tion display. One beet from this entry, and one from 
that entry, etc. Therefore, you can see that when 
the trophy is quoted as belonging to the Camera 
Works it really belongs to the Association. in(li\idu- 
ally and collectively. 

Several members brought specimens ti) the (\)ni- 
mittee as gifts and did not enter them in competi- 
tion. To these men all of us are indebted for their 
thoughtful service. We might mention several 
names such as Horace Blackwell. who brought us 
Brussels Sprouts and red cabbage. James Noble for 
his collection of squash and pumpkins. Joseph Izzo 
for his varied specimens of dried beans, Leon Morey 
for his lettuce, Fred Brehm for his tomatoes, etc. 
All this proves that although individually we can 
not get very far ahead in big competition, yet 
collectively we can carry away the tropiiy, and 
really deserve first prize because of our co-operative 

Did you ever hear the story of the black and 
brown sock.^ Well, it's a sad one, and it liappened 
in the dark, and on "blue" Monday at that! We 
always considered Dick Jennings a perfect model of 
Safety, but he even risks dressing witiiout a light, 
and, not practicing Safety First, he lost out! Any 
way, now we know that Dick wears tan shoes on 
Sunday, and has at least one tan sock to match!

We have lost a very familiar figure in Arthur 
Little, who passed away last month. He started 
at the Camera Works just twenty-three years ago, 
and has seen the comjjany grow up from infancy. 
The company and employees extend sincere sym- 
pathy to the widow and relatives. 

We regret to announce the sudden death of 
Florence Kohler, who passed away in the City 
Hospital on Scptemlier 3rd. Florence has worked 
in the Crease antl Cover Department for two years, 
and her many friends extend their sympathy 

The sudden death of John Franc came as a shock 
to his fellow workmen. John had been ill and 
depressed for a long time. His record of twenty- 
four years is an admirable one, and we shall miss 
John from the group of old employees. Sincere 
expressions of sympathy are extended to his family.

This picnic is almost comparative to "The last 
rose of summer," but its lateness did not prevent its 
success. One hundred and five Shutter Room 
Employees journeyed down to Island Cottage on 
Saturday, September 11, and a well-served chicken 
dinner was the reward. The rain managed to hide 
until after the ball game between the married and 
single men, but the ambitious sports program had 
to be changed from outdoor contests to inside 
amusements. The dance hall was commandeered 
for the purpose, and lots of fun was caused by shoe 
races, peanut races, etc. In the evening a dance was 
held and a three-piece orchestra rendered appropri- 
ate music. Elmer Ritz was Chairman, and the 
whole crowd voted the picnic as a complete success. 

The Camera Works almost looks as if it runs a 
matrimonial bureau. There are quite a number 
of our boys anfl girls who tie the nuptial knot. 
Anna Batte, of the Stock Record Department, 
married Ed. De Fraine, of the Etched Plate Depart- 
ment. Anna has left us but we still retain Ed., and 
we wish them all kinds of future happiness. Flora 
Thorne, of the Milling and Assembling Depart- 
ment, married Elmer Stubbs, of the Woodworking 
Deijartment. Sincere good wishes from us all. 

Two more weddings from the Bellows Depart- 
ment. Mary Flaig to George Oulac, Cecil Usdane 
to Jack Carter. Splendid ! All kinds of good wishes. 

We congratulate Minnie Minkau, of the Bellows 
Department, on the completion of her twenty years 
of good and faithful service. We tried to get a 
photograph of Minnie, but failed. Anyhow, every- 
one knows her and we all hope that we shall see her 
for many more years. 

Thirteen girls of the Bellows Department held a 
sausage and corn roast at Bay View. Evidently 
thirteen is not an unlucky number as it is supposed 
to be, for the girls had a grand and glorious time. 

Monica Gartland — Detail and Estimate Depart- 
ment — has changed her name to Mrs. Crissy. She 
has been with us so long that if we still call her 
Monica she mustn't mind. Congratulations! 

almost as happy as they are. The news leaked out 
that they were to be married on September i21st, at 
the Holy Redeemer Church. All the boys and girls 
working with them wish them a long and happy life. 

William Radtke is the proud father of an eleven 
pound boy — Donald — born on Labor Day. 

Mable Wessley — an Assembler in the Shutter 
room — was united in marriage to John McKekney 
on September 1st at the rectory of the Sacred Heart 
Church. Best Wishes, Mable. 

The second floor takes pleasure in annoucing the 
engagement of Helen Sullivan to William Schwartz, 
of this city. 

Everyone has noticed the smile on the counten- 
ance of David Hughey of the Woodworking Depart- 
ment. The solution is not hard to find when we 
look at the picture of David and Belle Gray who 
were married on September 18. They spent their 
honeymoon at Lake Champlain. 

Everyone in the Shutter room knows Minnie 
Richter and Walter Marcille, and their friends are

After passing through a very disastrous season of 
baseball, members of the Folmer-Century Athletic 
Association have turned their thoughts to bowling. 
Starting last season with the first eight-team 
Bowling League that had ever been undertaken and 
carrying it through to a very successful finish, mem- 
bers of the Folmer-Century Works Athletic Associa- 
tion met on Tuesday evening, September 7, 1920, and 
organized another Bowling League for the coming 
season. William Melvin, who has captained the 
team for the past few seasons in the Camera Bowling 
League, was elected President and C. H. Harper 
Secretary and Treasurer. 

The opening night is October 20, lO^O, at 
the Grand Central Alleys, and a large turn-out of 
members of the Association and plant officials will be 
on hand to give the League a good start for the 
coming season. 

Ernest Vuillier of the E.vperimental Department 
left the Folmer-Century Works, September -I, l9-2(). 
for Victoria, Texas, where he will engage in the 
automobile business. His many friends wish him 
much success in his new undertaking. 

We are glad to learn that Annabelle Kane of the 
Purchasing Department who has been on the sick 
list for some time is recovering. 

And the whole idea of prevention of accidents 
is each one's regard for SAFETY — and the thought 
to warn others of danger. Better hurt a fellow's 
feelings and keep him well and strong, than to chip 
in a quarter for his poor mother or wife and kiddies 
after he is killed. 

Talk and think Safety at work and at home. 

Harold E. Dunning of the Wood Machine Depart- 
ment was married September 8, 1920, to Edith M. 
Dutton. Congratulations. 

John Sgambaty of the Tool Department was 
married September 1. 1920. to Mary J. Passroe. 
Mr. and Mrs. Sgambaty have left for a two weeks' 
trip to New York, Philadelphia, and Washington. 

We don't want careless men around our plant — 
no, siree; a careless man endangers the life of 
evervone in his vicinity. 





The Folmer-Century Works Annual Picnic which 
was held Saturday, August '28. IQ'ZO. at Sea Breeze, 
"was a hummer from the start to the finish in spite 
of the threatening weather. From the time our 
happy and jovial bunch left the plant accompanied 
by Hebing's Band till the last one left for home at 
night there was one continuous round of entertain- 

Upon arrival at the grounds we made our way to 
the Pavilion where we disposed of the "eats." Im- 
mediately after the repast the band led to the ball 
grounds where one of the big events of the day was 
staged, a nine inning game between married and 

single men. After a hard fight the married men 
lost to the tune of 10 to 7. 

Upon returning from the ball groimds we were 
all lined up for the Cirkuts and Graflexes and had 
our pictures taken, which of course made us "look

With the grand finale of the regular Eastman 
Kodak League in sight, Hawk-Eye Athletic Associa- 
tion officials are planning an extension of the ball 
season by the foundation of two leagues of four 
teams each. These teams play the outdoor 
game with the regulation indoor baseball. Last 
year in scrub games much pleasure was afforded 
the boys who participated in the sport, so that the 
introduction of league games should further 
Hawk-Eye Athletic Association spirit and create 
inter-department rivalry. 

A nine-game schedule for each team has been 
arranged, and with its completion the winners in 
each league will meet in a "world series'" of best 
two out of three games for the Hawk-Eye Athletic 
Association Championshij). 

The teams with their respective managers making 
up the leagues are as follows: 

Eastern- Le.\gue 

Anastigmat Lens Carl Fischer 

Achromatic Lens John Kowalski 

Lens Mounting Charles Prentice 

Lens Centering John Lehle 

^YESTERX League 

Tool Department Leo Felerski 

Brass Department John Farrell

Mr. Rearson was the first employee hired by 
Mr. T. H. Blair at Boston when the Blair Camera 
Company started. Previous to the forming of the 
Company, Mr. Blair had cameras made by different 
concerns, one of them being the wood working sliop 
of Mr. Rearson. Mr. Rearson had completed a lot 
of cameras for Mr. Blair when the factory was 
destroyed by fire. Shortly after this Mr. Blair 
decided to form a company to manufacture cameras, 
and thus in 188'-2 the Blair Camera Company came 
into existence. Mr. Rear.son equipped the factory 
with the necessary machinery and turned out the 
first camera for Mr. Blair. John Dineen was the 
second person employed. James Watts joined the 
organization in 189.5. The Eastman Kodak Com- 
pany acquired the Blair Camera Company in April, 
1899, and moved the plant to Rochester. 







Foreman Brass Department — Twenty-one years Service 

The call for greater production has caused several 
changes in the Plating Department during the 
past few weeks. Two new nickel plating tanks, 
three cleaning kettles, a large drying oven, and a 
new motor and generator set have been installed. 

Well, now that we've seen what the Hawk-Eye 
Girls can do, we can hardly wait until next year. 
The girls themselves were wishing some Florida 
weather could be sent up to Ole Xoo York for use 
during the next six months, if it were not for the 
fun they're going to have this winter in basket- 
ball at the clul), and some other stunts not yet 
fully phuined. 

Leave it to them for pure, unadulterated pep, 
winter or sununer. 

The seed of girls baseball enthusiasm was planted 
early and results eagerly looked forw.-ird to Ity Hill 
Schiegel, father of Hawk-Eye (lirls IJaseliali, for 
quite some time. Finally green sprouts began to 
appear all over the field and with great joy Bill 
went to work to train them in the rigid direction. 
for future use. He cultivated and smootlied, dug 
up and replanted. Often lie feared for the survival 
of the fruits of his lal)ors. Hiil "patience and 
perseverance will move mountains'" and in tiiis case 
it turned out a team of girls as fine ;ind s|)()rlsriian- 
like as can l)e found, wholly wortli tlic admii-ation 
shown by the Hawk-Eye people and the interested 
crowds that gathered to see the games. 

So, wishing them all the good luck in the world, 
we bid a reluctant farewell to tlieir first liasebali 
season, and urge them to accept our good wishes 
and support when they again appear on the field. 

Three Hawk-Eytes were graduated from No. 5 
School, August Class in Civics, and received 
certificates of qualification for their final citizenship 
papers. They were Mr. Larter of the Anastigmat 
Lens Uepartment, Mr. ("asper of the Instrument 
Department, and Mr. Patsey Palleschi, of the 
Glass Moulding Department. A cordial invitation 
is extended to other eligible employees to follow 
tlieir example. 

A night shift has been put on in the Glass Mould- 
ing Department until more machines can be installed 
for this growing department. The night shift is 
in charge of Ernest Robbins, and consists of Wayne 
Mead, Charles Dubelbeiss, James Wittman and 
Harold Foote. 

The emplojees of the Hawk-Eye Works wish to 
extend their sympathy to Peter Brasser of the 
Assembling Department, to Albert Winslow of the 
Wood Department and to Ralph Hackett of the 
Stock Department. Mr. Brasser lost his wife, 
while Mr. Hackett and Mr. Winslow each lost a son 
during the month of .\ugust. 

The Girls Baseball team wishes to take this 
occasion to thank Mr. and Mrs. "Bill" Schiegel 
for the wt)nderful spread tendered them as a 
windup to the baseball season. They are firmly 
convinced that the team will never break up now, 
and that "Bill" will have to supply another feed 
sometime in the years to come if he wishes them 
to consider any suggestion of his regarding the 
breaking up of the girls' team which he moulded 
together into such a smooth working machine.

Hawk-Eye is to have a Soccer team — the best 
team ever put into the field. An enthusiastic lot of 
players are out practicing twice a week in prepara- 
tion for a strenuous season. Goal posts are to be

tion has promised to have jerseys ready in a short 

"Mac" Harding has been elected Captain and 
George Ansell is to manage the team. Plans are 
under way to have the team entered in the Rochester

Here's a striking example of what a little bit of 
carelessness may do to a man. The living example 
is blind now and sells shoe strings on the main street 
in one of our busy cities. He used to be an expert 
machinist. He lost both eyes because he was 
careless and failed to use his goggles on an operation 
that required these eye protectors. He has three 
children who have to work and neglect their educa- 
tion because he can't support them. In this man's 
dark life don't you think the darkest thing is the 
thought that the loss of his eyes was unnecessary 
and no one is to blame but himself.^ How would 
you like to be in his place feeling your way through 
the mazes of life with a cane or having someone to 
lead you about from place to place?

The summer season in the Xoon Hour Baseball 
League, just finished, was the most closely con- 
tested race we have ever had. Four teams picked 
from the cream of the spring league played such 
exceptional baseball that when the last game of the 
schedule had been played, the Legion, Colts and 
Outlaws were in a triple tie for first place, each 
team having won 6 games and lost 3. The Crabs 
had evidently had all the hard luck during the 
season, they having lost every game played. After 
playing another round, these 3 teams were still 
tied on September '■2nd, each having won 7 and lost 
4 games. Lots were then drawn for the first play 
off, the Outlaws and Colts playing the first game 
which resulted in a victory for the Colts by the 
score of 6 to 3. Following this game the Legion 
team was defeated, 5 to 3, leaving the Colts the 
undisputed champions. 

The opening game of the Fall series was played 
on Wednesday, September 8th, by the Hustlers and 
the Cubs. 

Following is a schedule for the final series of the 

October 1st Colts vs Bandits 

October 4th Hustlers vs Legion 

October 5th Cubs vs Bandits 

October 6th Outlaws vs Colts 

October 7th Legion vs Bandits

With the first tinge of fall in the air, our thoughts 
naturally turn to the "king" of winter sports — 

Kodak Park has always been represented on the 
court by one of the leading teams in this vicinity 
it having been the policy to give our followers an 
opportvniity to .see the better teams in action. This 
plan will again be followed out during the season of 
19-20 and 19-21. negotiations already being underway 
for games with a numlier of first class teams. 

The team this year will be coached by Herbert 
"Rip" Benzoni. The success which he had in 
handling the team a few years past guarantees a fast 
aggregation with the abilitv to play good basket- 

The first practice will be called sometime this 
month, the exact date to be designated later. 

It is planned to have, not only Kodak Park, but 
the other Eastman branches in the city represented 
on the team this season, and an invitation is 
extended to players in any of the plants to report 
for practice, and an opportunity will be given them 
to play. 

With such men available as Wilbur Woodams, 
of the Hawk-Eye Works, George Willis, of Kodak 
Park, and many others, our pro.spects for a city 
championship seem very briglit. 


The "Hospital Happiness" movement inaugurated 
in the city in August has apparently come in for 
some undeserved criticisms. 

The Kodak Park Executive Committee of the 
Community Chest investigated and found that 
while the project was in every way worthy of 
support, no provision had been made in the Com- 
munity Chest budget for work of this nature. 

In consequence it was agreed that no personal 
solicitation should be made, and that contributions 
to support the project should be purely voluntary. 

The "Hospital Happiness" cause is a most worthy 
one, but please understand that its promoters do 
not desire contributions except from those perfectly 
willing to aid in this work.

H. E. Van Hoesen has been in the employ 
of the Eastman Kodak Company for 30 years, 
beginning at State Street on Septemlier VZ, 1890. 
In August, 1894, he began work at Kodak Park, 
wliere he coated, by hand, all the plates that were 
sold by the company. 


For 'id years "Nan" has been working in the 
Plate Department where he is held high in the 
esteem of his fellow employees, as he has a kind 
word and smile for all. We wish to congratulate 
Mr. Van Hoesen on his long period of faithful 
service with the company. 


On Tuesday evening, August 31st, the men of the 
Pay Roll Department, Building No. '26, held a sau- 
sage and corn roast at "Herb" Shaw's place on 
Irondequoit Bay. Everybody had a ripping time 
and, for once, the "too many cooks" adage didn't 
hold good, which no doubt accounted for our 
ravenous ai)petites — you know, everyone having 
had a hand in the pie none had an excuse to pass it 
up! The special feature on the j)rogram was a prom- 
ised sail ill "Herbs" boat, but the br<H'z<' failed long 
before Thomson speared the last sausage. Never- 
theless we couldn't eutin'ly escaj)e some excitement, 
for a certain car hailing from Spencerj)ort was in 
the jjarty, and refused to climl) the "liirds and 
Worms" hill on the way home, and it recjuired the 
imited efforts of the whole crowd to push the 
recalcitrant "gas i)Uggy" up to level ground, where 
its "iiuiers" again fuiu'tioned normally and the 
party sped homeward. We are sure that tin- 
evening will always remain a pleasant remembrance. 

Genevieve Shirley, of the Film Rewinding Depart- 
ment, left August 3()th. to be married. We wish 
(lenevieve nuich happiness. 

Charlotte Smith, of the Branch Shipping OflBce, 
Builfling No. 33, and P. H. Case, of the Industrial 
Economy Department, were united in marriage 
Saturday, September 11, 19'20. Best of luck to 
both, from their frienfls. 

On Wednesday evening, September 8th, the 
nienil)ers of the Industrial Economy Department 
.spent a pleasant evening at the home of Walter 
Metcalf, Magee Avenue, in honor of P. H. Case. 
The bunch started in at once to tell "P. H." what 
he did not know about married life. They also put 
him through some stunts that will long be remem- 
bered, ('heer up Percy, it only comes once in a life- 

Bethuel Colburn, of the Industrial Economy 
Department, has purchased a home on Electric 
Avenue. Colburn believes in being well electrified. 

Adelaide Kalmbacher, of the Inside Pasting De- 
partment, was married to AUie Radke on Septem- 
l)er 4th. We extend our heartiest congratulations. 

On Saturday, August "Zlst. the girls of the Film 
Order Office had a very enjoyable time at a sausage 
roast, given at the home of Miss Grace VanVechten. 
Britton Road, Greece. Dancing and games followed 
which were enjoyed by all. 

Why is it that some employees are "laying off '" 
every few days? Why not stay on the job, get 
acquainted with your work and get it fi.xed in your 
mind that you are a jjart of the organization. Think 
it over. 

On September (ith. L. Cherry lost her brother 
through death. 

Ethel Kalsbeck, aged twenty-one, daughter of 
Albert Kalsbeck, Inside Cleaning Department, died 
August '•20th. 

P. Versluys, Laundry, and S. Sedore were married 
on August '27. 19120. The Department presented 
them with an aluminum percolator. 

Ask "\'ic" Ayette why "Cannan's Crabs" were 
changed to "Hustlers." Can't beat 'em.'' Why not 
accept the challenge of the girls' team, "Vic?" 

Franklin Wood and Jennette Walley, both of 
the Main Office, were married on August 17th. We 
extend our congratulations and best wishes! 

C. Fleming, on .September 8.

Pack Department, was married to Jolm Aldred, of 
the Rochester (Jas & Electric Corporation. 




"Jerry" Welles, Safety Engineer and Manager 
of Sports of the Kodak Park Athletic Association, 
first saw the light of day in Hartford, Connecticut. 
After passing tlirough the usual eventful period of 
youth he entered Yale University where he was 
prominent in athletics, particularly track work. 

Tag! you're it. If you do not obey the new 
traffic regulations, you are sure to find one of the 
green tags on your steering wheel and then a trip to 
Exchange Street. Obey the laws and help to make 
them effective. 


"Jerry" first came to Kodak Park on July 8, 1901, 
as assistant superintendent of the Emulsion Coating 
Department. Later on he was placed in charge of 
the Industrial Laboratory, going from there to the 
Electroplating Department now known as the Roll 
Coating Finishing. Some time later he was placed 
in charge of the estimating for the E. & M. Depart- 
ment, which position he held when called into service 
on the Mexican border with Troop H in June, 1916. 
He returned to the Park, in March, 1917, and was 
again called out on July loth of the same year, to 
participate in the World's W^ar, going to Brooklyn, 
from which place he was later sent to the camp at 
Spartanburg, South Carolina. He left for overseas 
on June 30th, 1918, as Lieutenant in charge of 
Service Park Units 402 and 367, and later partici- 
pated in the Somme offensive, being discharged in 
August 1919. He again returned to Kodak Park, 
assuming the position of Safety Engineer and 
Manager of Sports of the K. P. A. A. 

Mr. Welles has given much serious consideration 
to the safety first movement at Kodak Park. In a 
recent statement he explained that the maximum 
results cannot be obtained without the earnest and 
whole-hearted co-operation of the employees, in 
whose interest he is vitally concerned, and wishes 
to take this opportunity of requesting everyone to 
be on the lookout for conditions which can be 
improved. Dangerous places, hazards of one kind 
or another, the need of guards where not already 
installed, should be brought to his attention. It 
will be appreciated by him, and you will have the 
satisfaction of knowing that you are taking some 
part in the universal movement to protect yourself 
and your fellow workmen. 


On August '28th, Kodak Park Soccer Team played 
the first game of its Fall schedule when they met 
the Rochester City Moose in what was considered 
the best exhibition of Soccer Football seen in 
Rochester for some time. 

Two new players, Clegg and Pears, have been 
added to the team. Both of these men have 
demonstrated that they are capable of playing 
against the best Rochester talent. 

The first game of the R. & D. series was played 
on September Hth, against the Camera Works 

An effort is being made to secure suitable groimd 
somewhere in the vicinity of Kodak Park, and 
indications are quite encouraging. 


Bowling did a come-back at Kodak Park last 
season when the Thursday night and Saturday 
afternoon leagues, composed of members of the 
K. P. A. A. completed a very successful schedule. 

James Hart, of the Industrial Economy Depart- 
ment, president of the K. P. A. A. League for this 
year, is busy perfecting arrangements for a 16-team 
league representing the Association.

K. O. R. C. because the K. O. R. C. Picnic lias passed into 
history, don't believe for one minute that the activi- 
ties of the club are going to slack up. Something in 
which you are interested will be going on during 
the fall and winter months. 

Glenn Morrow, Athletic Chairman, reports that 
there will be something stirring in the athletic line, 
bowling, basketball, skating, snowshoeing, or any 
other form of activity in which a sufficient number 
of members are interested. 

We haven't forgotten the members who find 
pleasure in tripping the light fantastic. Arrange- 
ments have already been made for a series of dances. 
They will be held at the Masonic Hall. 

There will be jazz unsurpassed and you all know 
that there is no better crowd for a rousing good 
time than the K. O. R. C. Let's have every member 
out for the first dance. 

If you are interested in dancing, keep your eyes on 
the Bulletin Boards for a notice of the first dance — 
and— BE THERE. 


Did you know that way back in '99, the first 
telephone switchboard in the City of Rochester 
other than the Telephone Company's main board 
was installed liy the Eastman Kodak Company.^ 

We had one outside line and a board with ten 
extensions, and in order to call outside, it was 
necessary to go to the booth. Today with over two 
hundred and seventy phones, more than four 
thousand calls are handled each day. This in- 
crease in business over our wires has made the 
Main Office Telephone Directory necessary. 

Please do your part — co-operate — use the book 
and call bv number. 


The marriage of Ellen Dalton to Mr. Michael 
Darby, of Brockport, took place on Tuesday, 
September 7th, at nine o'clock, in Lady Chapel. 
The ceremony was jierformed by Father Kennan. 
Mr. and Mrs. Darby left immediately for a motor 
trip through New England. Upon their return 
they will reside in Brockport. Mrs. Darby has 
been with the Company three years. 

Remember that when you're in the right you 
can afford to keep your temper, and that when 
you're in the \vrong you can't afford to it. 

How do you like this fine little home of Ken 
Williams.^ Its new, and Ken says it's a grand and 
glorious feeling — no more rent. 





When it conies to old timers in the Kodak organi- 
zation, \Y. H. (Pop) Durfee claims a seat in the 
front row. 

When "Pop" entered the organization April 1, 
1887, as a sort of general all-around man, he was 
adorned with the set of whiskers you see in his 
picture herewith. Because people constantly took 
him for Beeman. the chewing-gum man, and also 
because some of the irreverent youths in the factory 
imitated the cry of a goat calling its mate when he 
passed hy. he soon removed them, and from then 
on took a chance with his face as you see it at the 
head of this little story. 

It wasn't long after his arrival that the desire to 
learn and grow netted him results in the way of a 
better job — that of coating bromide paper and 
American film, on the third floor of tlie old buihling. 

And in the fall of 1888, when the manufacture of 
the No. 1 Koilak was begun, the most capable and 
dependable men were put on the new work and 
■'Pop" Durfee was one of them. At first, the output 
of the Kodaks was between five and ten daily, de- 
livered to us in a handcart from a small room on 
the corner of Furnace and State Streets. 

"Pop" has seen many changes and developments 
during his stay with the Company. Ninety-four 
different kinds of Kodaks have been manufactured 
l>y the Company, and from a tlelivery of five a day in 
a handcart in 1888, "Pop" and his assistants now 
handle as many as 9,100 a day. 

Then, too, the work of thirty years ago was not 
eight hours per day, with Saturday afternoons off or 
anj'thing of the sort. Many a time Mr. Durfee 

worked until nine or ten o'clock anrl often midnight 
I)lannmg ahead or getting his accounts straight for 
the day. 

"Pop" has charge of the inspection of all Kodaks 
and Brownies that are sent through the shipping 
room to lovers of photography all over the world. 

Daughter of \V. H. Durfee, Testing and Packing Department 

"But for all this," Mr. Durfee said recently when 
speaking of his early privations, "I'm mighty glad 
I'm here today. I want to thank my many friends 
for all they have done for me. Also, I want to 
congratulate everyone in the employ of the Eastman 
Kodak Company today. The future is purchased 
by the present and my advice to all of you is to 
keep your eyes on the job ahead, to prepare for 
the big job ahead and stick till it comes." 

This is the wav ■Top" looked in 1887 



Florence Hunt and Maude Gregory were the 
surprised and happy recipients. September 9. 19-20, 
of many pretty gifts from their friends in the 
Testing and Packing Department. This being the 
occasion of their joint birthdays. 

The Testing and Packing Department is pleased 
to announce the engagement of Mabelle Williams 
to John Unger. 

When Ben Brown of the Auditing Department 
was passing the cigars around recently, somebody 
inquired if it were a girl or boy. Neither one. B. B. 
eft for the Company's new plant in Kingsport. 
Tennessee, where he is to be .\ssistant Treasurer. 
The best wishes of your associates go with you. Ben. 

A mysterious party took place at Ciel Devaney's 
cottage at Manitou. The D. X. Club held its first 
annual picnic and in spite of the fact that "mere 
man" was left out in the cold, the party was a huge 
success. Hazel McLain sang a solo and it is rumored 
that Schumann -Heink is bringing suit for damages. 
We don't know what the others did, but our own 
Jennie of the 15th made Irene Castle look like a 
clog-dancer. Come on, girls, tell us what D. X. 
stands for! 

"Mickey" otherwise known as Hazel McLain has 
deserted the 15th Floor for foreign lands, having 
moved desk and paraphernalia to 14. The "D. 
X's" miss her just loads. 

Emma Rockta?cheI has been promoted to the 
numerous duties of order clerk in the rank'^ nf tlie 
R. O. Good luck. Emma. 

Word has been received from Bertha Mischler. 
our visiting nurse, who has arrived safely in Cher- 
bourg. France. 

"Dad" Fulton who presides over the Repair Box 
Department says he is some fisherman and has the 
pictures to prove it. When questioned as to where 
he caught them, he seems somewhat hazy, but prom- 
ises us a picture of a deer he is going to shoot soon. 

Has anyone seen Ed. Surrey's garden.^ They say 
it's a "Beaut," and, judging from the produce 
he brings in some mornings, it naust be true. 

Grace Hallifax of the Billing Department, on 
account of ill health, has been granted leave of 
absence and sailed for England on the steamship 
"Imperator," September 9th. 

Ernest Ward, Frank Pethick and "Ted" Ogden, 
all of the Billing Department, have left us to resume 
their studies in Xew York, Cornell, and DePauw 
I'niversities, respectively. Good luck, boys I 

Ralph Johnson and Jack Brinkin, of the Service 
Department, attempted to enter an ice cream parlor 
the other day in a Ford through the front window. 
Prettv riskv. bovs — all for an ice cream soda.^ 

We are glad to welcome John Holmes and 
Craig Cochrane as new attaches to the Indus- 
trial Relations Department. 

Clayton Brown, formerly of the Premo Stock 
Department, has left the Company to accept a 
position as principal of the Erin High School of 
Pennsvlvania. We wish him the best of luck. 

Did you see the September Suggestion Bulletin.^ 
Eight hundred and eighty-one dollars paid to 
employees for their ideas. Did you get your share.' 
Everyone has an equal chance. Suggestions are 
awarded according to merit. We want your ideas 
and are willing to pay for them. 

We are planning to have a Main Office Baby 
Xumlier of the Kodak Magazine in the near future. 
We already have a number of pictures on hand. 
\ our youngest son or daughter will want to be among 
the rest, so send in a snapshot so that we can get the 
crowd lined up and see who the officers of E. K. 
Company will be in 1950. Do this now. 

Recreation is not our main pastime in Kodak. The 
fall months seem to have instilled vim and vigor 
into one, and a large number have enrolled in the 
evening classes of study in the various schools.

Yep, we had one grand time at our sausage and 
corn roast on Saturday, September 25th. Perhaps 
some think that the "eats" is everything, but then, 
they have never danced to the music furnished by 
our orchestra. Eph. Hawes evidently wished to 
test our voices so he composed the above "yell"; 
however, no one was arrested. 

Walter Capell, formerly of the Maintenance De- 
partment, has returned f rom Folnier-Century Works 
where he has been learning the stock game, to accept 
a position under Mr. German. Glad to see you back 
again, Walt. 

Congratulations to Guy Markham in the Repair 
Department! It is a girl. 

Beatrice Hugh, who has been in the employ of 
the company for nine years, left the Advertising

girls presented her with a silk handbag. Our best 
wishes go with you, Beatrice. 

The engagement of Olive Little, of the Finishing 
Department, and Walter Lambe. of the Advertising 
Department has been announced. 

Did you all hear that Mrs. Andrew W. Sturock. 
formerly Miss Hilda Coulman. of the Advertising 
Department is the proud mother of a baby boy? 

Ray Oakes of the Shipping Department l)elieves 
in working fast. On Thursday night he quit to 
work for his brother, and on Saturday morning he 
was back again on the old job. Ray declares that 
Kodak is a j)retty good place to work after all. 

We are glad to see Martha Pogue of the Stock 
Department back, after an illness of si.x weeks. 

We want every employee in Kodak Office to feel 
that this is his magazine, and consequently ask each 
and every one of you to take an interest in the 
publication, and hand in anything that you think 
will be of interest to the rest of us. 

George Copeland of the Shipping Department 
went on a fishing trip to Canada. "One fish was so 
big" says George, "that I tied it to a bridge while 
I went to get something to carry it in, and when I 
got back the bridge was gone." That's why the 
boys didn't get their fish dinner. 

Mildred Mayer, Mr. Fenn's stenographer, is 
wearing a new and mighty pretty diamond ring on 
the third finger of her left hand. Engaged? Sure — 
to Stanlev Arend. 

Six of the college men who are to remain here in 
Kodak office permanently gave a farewell banquet on

was married on September 1st to Miss G.Bosschoart, 
from Rotterdam, Holland. Best o' luck, Joe. 

We were very glad to receive a long newsy letter 
from Mr. Swingley last week. "Swing," as pre- 
viously reported in om- columns, left some weeks 
ago to take up farming '"somewhere in Florida." 
He reports crop conditions good. The rainy season 
must be on; at any rate it rains every day and 
between the oranges and frequent showers orangeade 
should be plentiful. 

Paul Fogelman of the Advertising Department 
has left the employ of Kodak and is now attending 
the University of New York. Paul is going to take 
a course in scientific farming.

"Bill" Croft is one of the oldest Kodak employees. 
He has been in continuous employ of the Company 
since 1886 — except when he served in the Arm\- 
during the Spanish-American war. 

In his present capacity he performs a very im- 
portant task, that of determining the correctness 
of the prices on all invoices rendered to customers 
by tlie Main Office. His "W. C." (Will Croft), 
when it appears on an office record, implies certifica- 
tion of absolute correctness, and when we stop to 
consider the number of invoices rendered each day 
by the Main Office, we must agree that he accom- 
plishes quite a task. 


We hear that Miss Harriman. our new nurse, has 
mastered the art of driving the flivver through Main 

Bob Harkins, in the Repair Department, attended 
the Spanish War Veterans' Convention at Washing- 
ton, D. C. Yes, Bob "fit" in the Spanish-American 
war, serving three years in the Philippines. He was 
a representative at the Convention from Rochester. 

Twelve girls of the Advertising Department held 
a sausage roast and variety shower at Manito,i 
Beach for Edna Thra.sher. Edna received many 
useful gifts and the girls report that the "dogs"

John Albertson of the Shipping Department, 
assistant to George Copeland, left the employ to 
attend the University of Rochester. We hope we'll

On a recent Saturday aftern(xin. Homer Ransom, 
manager of the Premo basketball team, enter- 
tained all members of the team as his guests 
at his cottage at Sea Breeze. Leaving the factory 
at twelve o'clock in autos. they arrived at the cot- 
tage in a short time, where dinner had been prepared 
by Mrs. Ransom, the tables being set on the front 
lawn waiting for their arrival. 

.\fter dinner the girls decided to don their 
bloomers and middies and take in some of the 
sights, .\fter strolling around riding on the jack 
rabbit, merry-go-round, the whip and the dear 
little ponies which are mostly for children, by this 
time the news had gotten to the '"Copper" that 
there was a bunch of the fair sex running loose in 
the park with a new fangled bathing suit on. .\s it 
is against the rule to leave the beach in bathing 
togs, "by request" the bunch decided to go back to 
the cottage where a number of games were played 
and prizes given as follows: 

Ostrich race won by Margaret Schwartz; mount 
race. Mary Dafner and Edith Beal; frog race. Edith 
Beal; standing broad jump. Jennie Walzer; first girl 
dre.s.sed in bathing suit. >Iarie Phillippsen. 

The girls wish to thank Mr. and ^Irs. Ransom for 
the splendid way in which they were entertained. 

If you have not been to the building bee, you are 
missing something. The boys are sure doing fine 
and the eats, well just send your name to the E. & S. 
Department and you will find out. Mr. Russell 
says that he still has quite a bit of work to do. Will 
you join us.^ 

The right wav to get monev is to work for it. 

If any Kodak employee living in the Nineteenth 
Ward has a finer \ariety of fruit, shrubs, vegetables, 
etc., Charles Werder of our tool department chal- 
lenges you to produce it. With a lot 117 x 133. he 
has a full sized house, cement walk, garage, driveway, 
chicken-coop, 19 chickens, dog-house, Airedale dog. 
•i'i fruit trees, 151 different kinds of shrubs. 27 
varieties of vegetables, 36 gooseberry and currant 
bushes and 6 grape vines. He produces enough 
fruit from the trees for all winter's use, and enough 
seasonable vegetables to feed a good sized family. 
Of course, marrying a "florists daughter" helps 
some in taking care of a garden like this. 


The guns and bow and arrow you see here are 
not relics of the Indian days or of the late wars. 
These '20th Centiu-y play toys were in the hands of 
a boy who had not reached his 17th birthday. By 
saving his spare money which was earned at odd 
jobs, he was able to purchase these at different times, 
without the consent of his parents. His father, 
after reading our safety bulletins and other propa- 
ganda on safety, and seeing the boys around at 
different times with the guns, decided that there 
might be something to all this safety bunk which 
he had heard so much about. Having in mind the 
harm that might be done to his or some other man's 
children with such deadly weapons in the hands 
of children, he took possession of same, knowing 
that perhaps this action might save the suffering 
or perhaps the life of some person.

They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder

OX September 4th. "Dutch" Irwin's 
All-Kodaks brought to Rochester 
the sensation par excellence, the prize 
attraction of the 19*20 season, when they 
entertained at Baseball Park the famous 
bearded ball-players of the House of 
David, from Benton Harbor, Michigan. 
The visitors added another to their long 
winning streak, by nosing out a 9 to 8 
victory over the Kodak warriors. 

This game attracted wide attention in 
Rochester and vicinity, and nearly 7,000 
people crowded the home of the Colts 
for a glimpse of the hairy handlers of the 
horsehide. One enormous heave by 
"Dutch" himself in the eighth session 
spelled defeat for the home talent. As 
one of the loval rooters commented: 

"He threw that pill farther than anybody 
on the team could hit it!" Three runs 
came home on the Kodak leader's error, 
just enough to give the visitors the long 
end of the decision. 

"Chuck" Forstbauer hurled first-rate 
ball, and with better support, should have 
notched the victory. The husky pitcher 
struck out fourteen of the invading bat- 
ters, and allowed them only eight 
scattered singles. The All-Kodaks mean- 
while were doing some real hitting. 
"Chuck" himself notched a double and a 
triple, while Floyd Gordon, holding down 
left field, bounced a four-sacker off the 
terrace. Five errors marred the work of 
the Kodak fielders.

League and forfeit to the leading teams, 
Hawk-Eye, Kodak Park, and Camera 
Works, the balance of their games with 
these leaders. This action put the Hawk- 
Eye team alone in first place with 12 
games won and 3 lost, and Kodak 
Park and Camera Works in a tie for 
second place, each team having won 11 
games and lost 3. The final game of 
the regular League schedule, played at 
Kodak Park on Saturday, September 
11th, proved a big upset to the dope- 
sters. The game was started in the 
midst of a drizzling rain and forced play 
to be called in the first half of the sixth. 

Thanks largely to the superb pitching of 
"Lefty" Kline and the timely hitting of 
"Pinky" Rutan, the State Street team 
surprised the spectators with a 6 to 1 
victory, thereby entering the play-off 
for the title. Kline allowed but one 
scratch hit and received splendid support 
from his team-mates. Rutan, with a 
clean homer into the hedge in left field, 
and a single over second, was responsible 
for four of the six tallies. 

As this number of the magazine goes 
to press, rumor is rife about a city title 
series between Hawk-Eye and the winners 
of the Industrial League title.

Being a Short Account of the Beginnings of Photography 

Chapter II 

THE collodion or "wet plate" process 
which so revolutionized photography 
is fairly well known. It was in universal 
"Wet use until the advent of dry plates 
Plates' in the eighties, and is still used 
extensively by engravers and for map 
printing. It even survived 
dry plates in many studios 
for several years — bringing 
its use within the recollec- 
tion, if not the actual experi- 
ence, of many readers. Pho- 
tographers who hadperfected 
themselves in the collodion 
method and knew to a cer- 
tainty its results, were some- 
times reluctant to change 
the known for the unknown, 
just as a few were reluctant 
to change from the tedious 
Daguerre process to the col- 
lodion and will, in turn, cling 
to dry plates long after por- 
trait film has even more 
firmly established itself. 
The preparation of one's own plates too 
was looked upon as part of the photo- 
graphic art, and many were influenced 
by these traditions. 

In the collodion method, a glass plate 
was coated with a film of collodion (a 
solution of nitrated cotton in ether and 
alcohol) in which had been dissolved 
certain iodides and bromides. Just as the 
fluid had set, the plate was immersed in 
a silver nitrate bath. The iodides in the 
collodion mixture combined with the silver 
to form an emulsion or suspension of silver 
iodide in the film. Both exposure and 
development were made while the plate 
was still wet. 


Troublesome as this method seems 
from modern standpoints, it marked 
the beginning of modern photography 
as we understand it, and permanently 
established photography as a profes- 
sion. A perfectly transparent nega- 
tive from which any num- 
ber of prints could be made 
was realized, in contrast 
to its great forerunner, the 
Daguerre process, which 
yielded a single picture 
for each exposure. The 
albumen printing process 
which made its appear- 
ance about the same time 
made the studio equipment 
fairly complete. 

These were giant strides 
in photographic processes, 
but giant strides made up of 
infinite, painstaking, experi- 
mental steps of which this 
brief historical narrative cati 
take no account. Daguerre, 
for instance, is said to have shut him- 
self in his laboratory for nearly two 
years, living almost continuously in the 
midst of books, crucil)les, retorts and 
melting pots. And every step of the 
way toward the discovery and simplifica- 
tion of photographic methods before and 
since has been gained at the same cost 
of infinite, painstaking research and 

Photographic processes, however well 
adapted to the studio, were still too in- 
Oittdoor volved and tedious for outdoor 
Outfit work, professional or amateur. 
The traveling outfit for instance at that 
time included a bulky view camera, heavy 



tripod, equally heavy and burdensome 
plates, a dark tent for loading and sensitiz- 
ing the plates before exposure, a nitrate 
bath and a water carrier. Having chosen 
his subject and set up his camera, the 
photographer had to creep under the dark 
tent to sensitize and load his plates, clap 
them dripping into the camera, and hav- 
ing made his exposure, creep under the 
tent again to unload and develop. 

Under such conditions, amateur pho- 
tography was virtually unknown; its prac- 
tice confined to a handful of devotees 
whose enthusiasm was ecjual to its difficul- 
ties, physical and technical. There were 
only two such amateurs in Rochester at 
the time and one of these was Mr. 

This was back in 1878. Mr. Eastman 
was a clerk at the time in the Rochester 
Savings Bank and took up amateur pho- 
tography as a hobby. From a local 
photographer, he learned how to 
make pictures, at a cost of $5.00 for the 
lessons, read all he could on the subject 
and practiced the art on every possible 
occasion. But he was not enthusiastic 
either over the load the amateur had to 
carry or over the "elaborate and pains- 
taking ordeal" that outdoor photography 
was in those days. 

The direction in which simplicity might 
lie was first suggested to Mr. Eastman by 
an article in an English magazine, in which 
"Dry' the possil)ilities of a gelatine "dry" 
Plates plate to replace the "wet" were 
discussed. In his spare time he began to 
experiment along these lines and eventu- 
ally "came upon a coating of gelatine and 
silver bromide emulsion that had all the 
necessary photographic qualities." His 
achievement was practically contempor- 
ary with their commercial production in 
England. And in 1880, under the firm 
name of George Eastman, he began their 
manufacture and sale. 

Dry plates "scrapped" the dark tent, 
the nitrate bath and other burdens of the 
field equipment. Results also were less 

dependent upon skill. And to this extent, 
amateur photography had been greatly 
simplified and relieved of much of its 
arduous labor. 

But plates, whether wet or dry are 
heavy. They are also breakable and the 
combination was still a great handicap to 
the amateur. So that professional pho- 
tographers remained by far the largest 
customers of the new dry plate industry. 
Further simplification was necessary if 
photography was to be made the everyday 
affair which even at that time was in Mr. 
Eastman's mind. 

The real solution of the amateur prob- 
lem pointed to a "rollable" film that 
would do away with glass plates al- 
Roll Film and together. The first step in 
Roll Holder this direction was a roll film 
of coated paper to which the sensitized 
emulsion was applied. A roll holder, the 
joint invention of Mr. Eastman and a 
co-worker, the late Mr. William H. 
Walker, adapted it to the ordinary view 
cameras then in use. 

Paper film, however, had serious dis- 
advantages. The paper was selected with 
utmost care and the negatives greased to 
make them transparent, but in spite of 
these precautions, the grain of the paper 
would now and then show in the print. 

The Eastman "stripping" film was then 
devised. This consisted of a temporary 
paper base coated with soluble gelatine, 
"Stripping" which in turn was coated with 

Fdm the gelatine emulsion. When 
the negative was immersed in water the 
image could be stripped or ' 'floated' ' off and 
transferred to a transparent gelatine skin. 
A perfectly transparent negative was rea- 
lized, but the process was intricate and 
had to be handled by expert hands. 

The mechanical end of the problem had, 
however, been solved to the inventor's 
satisfaction — it was now a question of 
film — and along these lines, as we shall 
see, the whole problem of amateur pho- 
tography was ultimately worked out.

Our first quarterly Amateur Photo- 
graphic Competition was a most decided 
success; every plant, including the Main 
Office, was represented, with a total of 
five hundred and twenty-three pictures. 

It is with satisfaction that we record 
the fact that the pictures submitted were 
of an unusually high order, and demon- 
strate that there are many high-class 
technical and artistic amateur photogra- 
phers within our organization. 

Kodak Park carried off the honors, 
capturing the first, third and fourth 
awards; Main Office coming in for second 
place. The awards are as follows : 

First Prize $50.00 L. A. Jones, Kodak Park 

Second Prize $'25.00 Frances Ditchburn, Main Office 
Third Prize $15.00 James M. Trayhern, Kodak Park 
Fourth Prize $10.00. .Lillian M. Lewis, Kodak Park 

Honorable mention was also awarded 
to the following: 

E. P. Wightman Kodak Park 

B. C. Edgett Camera Works 

Sarah E. Plain Main Office 

Harriet M. Stone Main Office 

The winning pictures are shown 
herewith. (See pages 2 and 5) 

We hope you will come out strong for 
the Second Competition, which closes 
December 31st. The awards will be the 
same as for the first competition and the 
subjects are as follows : 

Home Portraiture 
Architecture and Interiors 
Flashlight Pictures 

The terms governing the competition 
were given in full in the October issue. 

Please do not send hand colored pic- 
tures, nor pictures toned in red or blue, 
as they are practically impossible to re- 
produce successfully. 

Be sure and write your name distinctly 
on the back of each print, together with 
the name of your plant, and the camera 
with which the negative was made.

If you live near Kodak Park, you need 
have no fear of finding either one of these 
strange beasties scratching on your back 
door or conducting themselves in any 
other unseemly manner; they are far too 
well trained for that. 

Practically all of us are familiar in a 
general way wath the various products we 
manufacture; cameras, film, plates, paper 
and all the other things photographic, and 
we also know that our company is the 
largest in the world, and that its products 
have been used, and are known, from 
pole to pole. The constantly increasing 
range of usefulness of photography in both 

the industries and in the scientific world 
has involved us in many unusual prob- 
lems. To aid us in solving these problems, 
and to maintain our lead in the industry, 
we maintain at Kodak Park our Research 
Laboratory. (Some other time we are 
going to tell you more of its work.) 

During, and immediately after the war, 
many manufacturers and scientific insti- 
tutions found themselves cut off from a 
supply of the unusual chemicals necessary 
to their work. 

Our Research Laboratory, more 
through a feeling of patriotism than with 
a thought of gain, undertook to manu- 
facture and supply these much-needed 
products, and so you see these two fear- 
some names were simply taken from a 
recent list of chemicals we are in position 
to supply. 



A FRIEND of ours asked us not so long 
ago. to step into a hardware store 
with him to examine a kitchen range. 
Now what we don't know about ranges 
would fill quite some volume, but having 
nothing much else to do we consented. 
The dealer showed off the range; it was a 
nice shiny affair, with the usual number 
of doors, dampers, and other "dew 
dads." After explaining its various 
points the dealer added, "I can make 
you a good price on this range because 
the manufacturers don't advertise it, 
and save all the money that would 
be spent that way, and so can make a 
lower price to me." 

The friend looked inc|uiringly at us 
and we had to laugh because the idea 
that unadvertised goods could be sold 
for less money because no money had 
been spent for advertising was fully 
and completely exploded as far back as 
the Chicago Fair. 

If you have a good product, and that 
is the only kind worth advertising, the 
amount spent for advertising will be an 
investment, not an expense, and here's 
to prove it. 

Let us take our own Kodak; what 
has made it known and sold in every 
country in the world, and why does it 
take acres and acres of floor space and 
thousands of employees to produce it, 
and the other goods of our manufacture? 
Could all this have been accomplished 
without advertising, and could our 
products be sold at as low a price if 
they were not advertised? They could 

The first Kodak, invented l)y Mr. 
Eastman, was a new idea; amateur 
photographers were not, and for the sale 
of Kodaks there was no market waiting; 
it had to be created. He i)ersonally 
could have sold a certain niunber in his 
own city; he could have employed a 
small army of salesmen to cover the 
country, but the cost would have been 
all out of proportion. How then could 

he and did he create this market, and 
increase the sale of his goods?. By 
advertising. And did this expenditure 
of money for advertising increase or 
lower the cost to the purchaser? It 
lowered it. 

In any factory, large or small, the 
same force that can produce twenty-five 
items can with but little more effort 
produce thirty; a shipping clerk can 
with practically no extra effort ship 
this extra amount; the bookkeeper can 
bill these extra items in a few moments, 
and the cashier can handle the extra 
money with as little effort; so to produce 
this added amount requires but little 
more than the necessary extra supply of 
raw material. 

Of course, as any business grows 
beyond a certain point, more help and 
more of everything else is required, but 
the fixed charges or overhead expense, 
as it is termed, do not keep pace at 
the same rate, and so the bigger your 
production the less per item it costs. 

As the market widens, and production 
increases, the demand for material grows, 
and the buyer in large quantities can 
usually obtain the cjuantity price; an- 
other saving in the cost to produce. 
The only way to increase production 
and to lower its costs is to increase the 
market for the goods, and the only 
economical way to do this is by 

When anybody tries to tell you that 
goods can be sold for less money because 
they are not advertised, just laugh at 
him; you know better.

" 4 N' the bugga man will getchya if 
-i\- you don't watch out" — and this 
according to one of our best beloved 
poets and carefully compiled statistics, 
is true. 

When you are but twenty-one, the 
age of forty seems so far in the future 
that its head doesn't even stick up over 
the horizon. 

Protection for your old age, and for 
any future dependents on you, does not 
enter into your calculations because 
you have oodles and oodles of time in 
which to attend to such matters. 

"Tempus fugit," as we used to say 
in dear old Rome, or in plain English, 
"Time flies," and the bugga man is just 
around the corner. 

Here is what statistics disclose: 

Eighty-seven per cent, of those who 
have money today will lose it by the 
time they reach age 65. 

Take 100 average healthy men, start- 
ing at age 25, and on reaching age 65 
thirty-six will be dead, one rich, four 
wealthy, five obliged to work for a living. 

fifty-four "down and out," dependent 
on private or public charity. 

The accident companies report that 
about '-2,000,000 persons are killed or 
injured every year in the United States. 

Probate Court records all over the 
United States show that of all estates 
probated, 85 per cent, have nothing; 
11 per cent, small amounts, $300.00 to 
$10,000, and only -4 per cent, have 
$10,000 or more. 

Eight million women in the United 
States must work to live. Of 3,000,000 
widows in the United States over age 
65, ninety per cent, are without the 
comforts of life. 

These are facts, derived from the most 
authentic sources — the U. S. Government 
Census, Probate Courts, the American 
Bankers' Association, the Carnegie Insti- 
tute, and others. 

Each succeeding year seems to roll 
around a bit faster than its predecessors, 
and the time remaining to protect 
yourself and those dependent upon you 
soon becomes all too brief, and the 
bugga man of old age, poverty, shows 
up all too plainly. 

The best and most easily acquired 
protection is life insurance. There are 
many good companies and varying forms 
of policies to meet different conditions. 
The younger you are, the less it will cost 
you to carry insurance, and if you 
continue in good health you can add to 
the amount carried as your earning power 

When a man assumes the responsibility 
of caring for a family, his duty does not 
end when he supplies them wath food, 
clothing and shelter from day to day. 

He must make provision for their 
needs in the future. 

"Life insurance is bread money, and 
the man who needlessly denies it to his 
family is unworthy to have a family," 
so remarks a famous minister. 

Protect yourself and yours from future 
want — don't wait for the "bugga man 
to get you." 



The folks over in Toronto believe in 
up-to-date safety methods just as much 
as we do here. 

The accompanying picture shows our 
General Safety Supervisor, Charles H. 
Thompson, addressing the employees of 
the Canadian Kodak Company, Ltd., at 
Kodak Heights during a recent visit. 


Just because we have good, live athletic 
and recreation associations here in the 
Rochester organization, we must not get 
the idea that Kodak Limited, across the 
pond, is in any way behind. 

The Kodak Recreation Society of 
Kodak, Ltd., recently held their annual 
sports and garden fete at the Kodak 
Sports (irround in Wealdstone. 

A long program of events was run off; 
the events were open to other local 
athletic associations, with the entries 
totalling over five hundred. 

A crowd of about four thousand fol- 
lowed all events with great interest. 

Numerous other good time devices 
were provided for those not participating 
in the athletic events, and the day was 
closed with dancing during the evening. 


During the last twelve months, 
25,000 people were injured and 
Nearly 900 were killed in street 
Accidents in the city of New 
York. The street record is indeed 
A big one, because the streets are 
Used by people going to and from 
Their work and by hundreds of 
Pleasure-seekers and shoppers. It is 
Interesting to note from the street 
Record of last year, that automobiles 
Killed (596 and" injured 16,288. Other 
Vehicles killed 16.S and injured 6,19L 
Accidents from other causes than 
Vehicles resulted in 33 deaths and in 
1.962 injuries. 

Be careful in the street in front of 
Your home and in going to work. Here 
Annually in Rochester, scores of 
People are killed and injured simply 
Because they do not take care when 
Crossinu' the streets. 

Don't merely think it over; put it over. 
God has given every man etpially twenty- 
four hours of time each day. The differ- 
ence is in the use of that time. — Safety 




JOHN S:MITH, his wife and five 
children, were routed from their beds 
one night last summer by a fire that 
completely gutted the house they lived 
in. Awakened by the smell of smoke, the 
crackling of flames and the shouts of 
neighbors, they barely had time to snatch 
a few articles of clothing and escape to the 
street. Everything they possessed in the 
way of household furniture, bedding and 
extra clothing was destroyed by the fire. 

Neighbors took them in for the night, 
and bright and early next morning the 
little family gathered at the fire-wrecked 
structure that had been their home to 
take counsel and see how much, if any- 
thing, had been spared by the flames. It 
did not take them long to realize that 
their loss had been complete. The 
contents of the house, comprising all the 
family's cherished possessions, were 
charred and blackened beyond the hope 
of salvage, and with the blackened, 
scorched and dripping walls presented a 
scene of desolation that caused their 
hearts to sink. 

The Smiths were comparative stran- 
gers in Rochester, having moved to the 
city recently; they had no relatives to 
whom they could appeal, and their circle 
of friends was limited to the immediate 
neighborhood. Since moving to Roches- 
ter, Smith had earned just enough to 
maintain his family; he had not been 
able to lay by anything for the rainy 
day. As he stood with his wife and five 
children ruefully looking at the ruins of 
their home, he had exactly $15 in his 
pocket, and that was all the money he had 
anywhere. Only a few days previously 
the family outlook had appeared so 
bright, for the two eldest children, one 
15 and the other 16, had finished school 
and taken positions, and the prospect of 
the enlarged family income had given 
them all a vision of better living condi- 
tions — a few comforts, perhaps. Then 
the fire came. 

Sympathetic neighbors invited the 
Smiths to breakfast, and Father and 
Mother decided afterwards that Eva and 
Bob had better go to their jobs, first giving 
them money from the scanty store to 
buy lunches, Father in the meantime 
notifying his emploj^er that he would not 
report for duty that day as he had to 
find some place, no matter how humble, 
that would serve as a shelter. Mrs. 
Smith was made welcome by a hospitable 
neighbor, while Smith went about his 
urgent errand. 

The plight of the Smith family excited 
the sympathy of all in the neighborhood 
who knew them and their circumstances. 
A few of the neighbors talked it over and 
canvassed the possibility of doing some- 
thing for them. It was not an affluent 
neighborhood and none of its residents 
were in a position to do very much. But 
all of them had the heart to do a great 
deal. One of the group finally announced : 
"I'm going to call up the Community 
Chest. We'll wait and see what they have 
to say." 

When John Smith returned a few hours 
later from his quest pretty much dis- 
couraged by the fact that he had had to 
pay down eight of his few remaining 
dollars to cover one week's rent in ad- 
vance for an upper flat, he found a young 
woman talking to his wife, a very business- 
like young woman, who somehow or 
other in the few minutes she had been 
conversing with Mrs. Smith, had been 
able not only to grasp the entire situation 
but to give sensible advice and offer 
practical assistance. This young woman, 
representing one of the philanthropic 
organizations in the Community Chest 
budget, took full charge of establishing 
the Smith family in their new flat, sup- 
plying furniture, beds, bedding and 
cooking utensils, and food and clothing. 

John Smith was not the type of man to 
let pride stand in the way of accepting 
the aid his family needed so sorely; 



neither was he of the type that is prone 
to "lay down" and let charitable organi- 
zations bear all the burden, as is shown 
by the following paragraph from the 
organization's report to the Community 
Chest : 

"This morning they told us that tliey 
did not wish any more aid; that they 
would go slowly and buy as they went 
along, as they now have sufBcient to keep 

house with. We shall merely send in 
groceries until pay checks come in, unless 
something unforeseen happens." 

This is a true story with the exception 
of the names used. The misfortune that 
befell "John Smith" may easily happen 
to any family. There are very few per- 
sons in the world who do not need a help- 
ing hand at some stage along life's 



PRACTICALLY without exception 
you will find that the man who has 
achieved success has been a reader. This 
does not mean that he has confined him- 
self solely to musty tomes, and to the 
study of text books relating to his tasks 
in hand. On the contrary, the majority of 
successful men and women are readers 
of fiction; not trash of course, but fiction 
of the better class, because such reading 
stimulates the imagination, and imagina- 
tion is essential to success. 

Imagination combined with vision is 
accountable for most big things in life. 
Now there is a difference between 
imagination and vision, though they may 
be said to be interlocking. 

One good definition of imagination is 
this: "The art or power of combining the 
products of past experience in modified, 
new, or ideal forms; the creative or con- 
structive power of the mind." Vision: 
"The representation of absent or remote 
(as in the future) things as present." 

The success of Edison, Westinghouse, 
Eastman, Schwab, Morgan, Carnegie, 
and others of our big men has lain in this 
combination of imagination and vision. 

Vision is perhaps not so easy of stimula- 
tion as is imagination, but we should by 
all means cultivate the imagination if 
only for its value to us in a practical way. 

We will venture to say that ninety- 
nine per cent of the successful suggestions 
submitted to us are from employees who 
read much. 

Now this brings us down to what do 
you read, or what can you or should you 
read, in the way of fiction, to stimulate 
this faculty of imagination. 

There are many other reasons for the 
reading of good books, most of which are 
self-evident, but let us afford here a short 
list of books which may be read with both 
interest and profit, and all of which may 
be found in any public library. 

Lorna Doone, Don Quixote, Huckle- 
berry Finn, Tom Sawyer, all of Charles 
Dickens's stories. Count of Monte Cristo, 
Three Musketeers, Luck of Roaring 
Camp, Les Miserables, Charles O'Malley, 
Last Days of Pompeii, Bob, Son of Battle, 
The Right of Way, Ivanhoe, Dr. Jekyll 
and Mr. Hyde, Treasure Island, Gulli- 
ver's Travels, Gentleman from Indiana, 
Vanity Fair, Round the World in Eighty 
Days, The Virginian. 

This is just a list selected at random, 
and it does not include any of the many 
excellent works of the last few seasons. 
Undoubtedly many of you have read 
every book in the above list, but if not 
you can spend a pleasant evening or so 
with anv one of them. 

Courtesy is like the air on the inside 
of a tire. There may be nothing to it, 
but still it eases many a jolt and saves 
many a rupture. 




By A. A. RuTTAN, President Rochester Safety Council 

SAFETY First — we believe in it, we are 
strong for it. But do we always prac- 
tice it? Do we unfailingly remember that 
personal caution is the only means of 
insuring constant safety? Do we allow 
the constant warnings of the day to be- 
come trite in our minds? 

Thirteen per cent, of the fatal accidents 
of last year occurred in industry, the re- 
maining eighty-seven per cent, in other 
phases of life. 

Precautions — we need them, and if we 
are to reduce accidents to an absolute 
minimum, we must heed them. Let me 
remind you of a few. First, in our ivork, 
we should always have respect for safe- 
guards, they are put there for our benefit. 
If we have suggestions, we should make 
them. Furthermore, the use of common 
sense ought to prevent the commoner 
mistakes, such as running up and down 
stairs and taking chances in getting in and 
out of elevators. So, in the course of our 
employment, to be carefid all the time 
of what we are doing with our bodies, is 
the best safety rule. 

In the home safety should be the watch- 
word, especially with the children. 
Dangerous playgrounds — the street, shops 
or places near machines, electric currents, 
or on high walls, and playing with things 
that are likely to cause injury — such as 
matches, glass, and poisons, are to be 
scrupulously avoided. Make a safe place 
for the youngsters to play, or see that 
they get safely to the playgroimds where 
they can come under the direction of our 
City Playground Supervisors. 

Again, on the street, or in public places, 
we must always remember that the safety 
of others as well as our ovv^n security de- 
pends upon our thoughtfulness. There- 
fore, if we drive, let us go slowly enough 
to have perfect control of our machines, 
and obey the law as to signals and the 
rights of others. If we walk, we shoidd 

cross the streets only at crossings and 
take care in heavy traffic or congested 

To summarize, if we believe in safety, 
we must always act with a clear mind and 
a steady hand, and be prepared in case 
of emergency. "Safety First is a life sav- 
ing disease — be sure vou catch it." 


When a telephone operator sits down 
to her work in the morning she probably 
faces a greater number of people than 
a worker in any other industry. 

An operator might think of herself as 
a blind person sitting at the beginning of 
a long procession, each individual of 
which asks her something. 

Here comes somebody with a fresh, 
rested voice; here someone in a hurry, 
and the operator endeavors to be quick 
to help him to what he wants. Here is 
the voice of an old person who seems 
afraid of making a mistake; there a 
child who speaks much too loud or 
waits too long to tell what he wants. 
There are pleasant voices, voices too 
loud, voices too weak, and each one 
gives you a very distinct impression. 

We feel you at our end of the wire; 
we feel your anxiety; we feel your 
hurry; we are sensitive to your im- 
patience, and WE love' YOUR 

We get to know what most of you 
think of us; your confidence of our 
gladness to serve you makes the day 
glad for us, for who can come nearer to 
all of your needs than an operator? 

People plus service ! We work with 
all the ability, patience, wit, skill, speed 
and love that an operator can cram in to 
make a big world glad and a busy world

K. O. R. C: 

Arthur Bartholomew.. Mgr.. Men's Bowling League 

Glenn Morrow General Athletic Chairman 

Fred Fogarty Mgr., Men's Basketball Team 

Laura Cramer ^Igr.. Girls' Bowling League 

.\lice I'pton Chairman. Dance Committee 

.\delaide Meise Mgr., Girls' Basketball Team 

The first work-out of the Girls' Basketball Team 
was held at the Stratford Roller Skating Rink on 
Monday, October 11, and since that time they 
have been holding practices regularly. Toddy 
Diehl has the team in hand and it is expected that 
they will become the stars of Rochester before 
long. If anyone plays who hasn't already signed 
up, see Adelaide Meise and report for practice — 
every Monday at 6 p. m. 

This branch of the K. O. R. C. activities bids 
fair to be a howling success. On Wednesday 
evening, October 6, about fifty girls as.sembled at 
Elm Hall for preliminary practice, and a great 
deal of enthusiasm was shown. Some of the girls 
had never bowled before; so a corps of instructors 
in the persons of Messrs. Strowger, Bartholomew 
and Van Dusen was present. Frank gave the 
demonstrations and the girls all voted that he was 
very graceful. 

We are unable to state definitely as to the future 
bowling dates for the girls, but the time and place 
will be announced just as soon as possible.

On a recent Saturday afternoon about twenty- 
five people from the Accounting Department went 
to Sunset Point, near Durand-Eastman Park, 
for a sausage and corn roast. The weather was 
ideal, the water just right for a swim, but — the 
bath houses were all closed for the season. 

Athletic sports were run off during the afternoon, 
and Olive Wallace won the first prize in the girls' 
football contest. A mixed ball game by teams 
chosen by R. Kron and H. Bakker ended in a 
victory (.'') for the Bakker outfit, and not all the 
runs were made by the fellows either. 

Mr. Kron, in charge of the entertainment, kept 
everybody smiling. He is siu-ely full of "pep." 
Much singing was enjoyed, as well as the games and 
a Moonlight Virginia Reel. Altogether, it was a 
very successful party and we all went home happy. 




.jamp:s hudlass 


James Hudlass, who has been employed by the 
company for upwards of eighteen years, and for 
the past eight years connected with the Welfare 
Department, left the employ of the company on 
Thursday, September 30th. On Monday, October 
4th, he and his family started for Avon Park. 
Florida, where they own an orange grove. Mr. 
Hudlass was in the employ of the Seed Dry Plate 
Company at St. Louis at the time it was purchased 
by the Eastman Kodak Company. He remained 
in St. Louis until 1911, when the plant was trans- 
ferred to Rochester. 

Before Mr. Hudlass left he was presented with a 
gold watch and chain by Mr. P. W. Turner, on 
behalf of the department and friends. A large 
number of his fellow employees and friends were 
at the station to bid him and his family good-bye. 
The best wishes for health and prosperity go with 
them in this new venture. 

Gladys Mitchel, of the Sample Print Department, 
has been away from the Department for some time, 
due to the illness of her mother. 

Earl Jones, of the Enlarging Department, has 
left the company to enter Boston Tech. 

Olive Little, of the Finishing Department, and 
Walter Lambe, of the Advertising Department, 
were united in marriage Sept. 18th at the par.sonage 
of the Lake Avenue Baptist Church, by Dr. A. W. 
Beaven. Miss Mabel Gummier, a friend of the 
bride, was bridesmaid, and Eldin Lambe, brother 
of the groom, was best man. 


November is a good month for hunting. It's a 
fine season for Suggestions, tool Everyone is back 
from his vacation and feeling good and peppy. 
Look around for you will probably see things in a 
different light and possibly see some easier way 
in which some task can be accomplished. Sugge.s- 
tion blanks are handy. Just put your suggestion 
in one of the printed Suggestion Envelopes and 
we will take care of it. A good chance for you to 
make money. W'rite down that idea and send it 
in now — one Suggestion a month. 

The sympathy of the Finishing Department is 
extended to Myrtle Randall in the recent loss of 
her mother. 

Moving day doesn't always come May 1st. 

November will see the Tabulating Department 
transfer its activities from the 13th to the 9th floor. 

This isn't because of rent profiteering, as we have 
the same landlord. It's because we are offered 
more elbow room. 

The girls of the K.O.R.C. wish to thank Messrs. 
Strowger, Bartholomew and Van Dusen for coaching 
their bowling party October 6th. 

Flossie Mann and Pearl Lyons, of the Sales 
Department, 15th floor, have taken advantage of 
Leap Year and left the Kodak Office, as well as The 
Kodak City. Pearl was married October 6th to 
Mr. James Bogan of Brooklyn, New York, where 
she will take up her domestic duties, while Flossie 
will make her future home in Saginaw, Michigan, 
with her husband, Mr. William Moore. We 
certainly wish them loads of happiness and miss 
them just heaps. 

Clara Donsbach, of the Finishing Department, 
was absent for five weeks on account of illness, but 
is now able to be with us again.

bad it wasn't an "L mp." 

Helen Bladergroen, who has been employed with 
Mr. Johnson, Traffic Department, has left to accept 
a position in Chicago. 

George Amsbuoy is back in the Shipping Depart- 
ment after a serious illness of over six months. 
Glad you're back, George. 

"Judge" Hodgson, of the Advertising Depart- 
ment, is away on sick leave. Court is in session 
as usual but the smile that has warmed in the 
neighborhood of 1,570,428 hearts is sorely missed. 

Incidentally, not only is "Judge" Hodgson, of 
the Advertising Department, a brother of M. B. 
Hodgson, of the Sales Department, but M. B. 
Hodgson, of the Sales Department, is a brother of 
"Judge" Hodgson, of the Advertising Department. 
The thing is uncanny.

Vera Franklin, of the Advertising Department, in 
honor of Dora Goldman, whose marriage will soon

Roast Sunday, October 3rd, was a great success and

mind. Then, too, there were some good snapshots 
taken in the pouring rain, which we believe some

Saturday, October '•2nd, was a big day for the 
people of the Stock Department Office, and the 
honorable wives of the fortunate ones, which 
included the bride, Mrs. John R. Goodwin. 

Upon the sound of the 1-2 o'clock whistle every- 
body was ready to journey lakeward to David 
Solmes' summer home at Summerville, where our 
most able chef, Charlie Howard, had a clambake 
in the niaking. Talk about your eats — everything 
that you could wish for, and more than fourteen 
could take care of. This can be proven by the fact 
that it took us until 4:00 p. do away with what 
was set before us. After everything had been cleaned 
up the remainder of the afternoon was enjoyed in 
dancing to the music furnished by one of the guests. 

Did we have a good time.^ Look at the picture — 
that tells the story. Many thanks to Charlie 

Justin McCarthy held a get-together party for

and leave for Buffalo at once, sorry to give you such 
short notice, but can not help it now as they want 
us to go at once." Boys, we wish you the best of 
luck in vour new adventure. 

Dear Friends at the Premo — Just a few lines to 
let you know that I received a clipping from the 
Kodak Magazine in regard to my leaving, and I 
want to thank all who wish me good luck. As I said 
before, I will always have a good word for the Kodak 
Company, as I have always been treated fine by 
them. I am feeling fine and can't kick, and I like 
my work first rate. Detroit is a wonderful city and 
both myself and my wife like it here. I give all my 
friends and acquaintances at the Premo my kindest 
regards, and a line from any of you would be greatly 
appreciated. I remain as ever, Elmer L. Krapp, 
1342 East Canfield, Detroit, Michigan.

ment and Service Department, our sympathy on the 
death of her brother Fred L. Cunningham, who died 
suddenly, Thursday morning, September 30th. 

Premo has some good live wires on the Bowl- 
ing team for this season, and by the looks of 
things they will give a good account of themselves. 
Starting out with such names as Florian Mura, 
Charles Sullivan, George Texter, George Topel, 
Vincent Theno and Ernest Thomas, you can see 
that the pins are going to fly. 

All employees who are taking a special educational 
course at the Mechanics Institute, University of 
Rochester, or the R. B. I., and have not filled out 
one of our application blanks should do so at once. 
Ask vour foreman. 

The season's first Progressive Pedro Party and

Do you ever wonder why some meiijget ahead? 
Why are they selected for the better jobs? Did you 
ever hear of a man landing a good job in life without 
preparing the way by persistent study to learn just 
a bit more about his job each day? 

If you want a living example of the truth of this, 
consider Louis C. Wheeler, Premo Employment 
Manager and Safety Supervisor. As one of a family 
of ten children, it was neces.sary that he "chip in and 
help;" so at the age of ten, he was sent by his 
parents to the country to work for his board, cloth- 
ing and the privilege of attending school. Wheeler, 
however, saw very little of school during the two 
years he worked on this farm, because of the great 
distance from the farm to the schoolhouse. 

But fate decreed that yoimg Wheeler was not to 
become a farmer. One of his older brothers, then 
working in the camera factory of Frank A. Brownell 
(now the Camera Works, Eastman Kodak Com- 
pany), wrote him that Rochester offered an excellent 
opportunity for an ambitious boy to get ahead; so 
being of the ambitious type, Louis spent many 
hours a day running errands, selling papers and 
doing little odd jobs to enable him to come from his 
home in Ohio to Rochester. In early May, 1895, he 
first saw The Kodak City. 

Louis had little trouble getting a job at the 
Bro^viiell factory as errand boy at $'■2. 50 a week. 
Later on a better chance was offered him in the 
Leather Case department, under Vincent Zick, who 
is still at the Camera Works. At this work he 
learned to make cases, stitching them by hand. On 
the adoption of machinery to replace the handwork 
on cases, he was transferred to the Assembling De- 
partment where he assembled cameras and also 
kept record of the time cards on his floor. 

In 1900, Frank Boughton, Superintendent of the 
Rochester Optical Company (now the Premo Works) 

offered him a position at shutter making and he was 
on this job when the plant was taken over by the 
Eastman Kodak Company in 1903. When a new 
man was needed to take charge of the focusing and 
fitting department, Wlieeler was chosen for the 
position, not only because of his complete knowledge 
of the work, but also for his evidenced desire to 
"get there" by hard work and study. 

It is the man who has grown and is still learning 
who is asked to shoulder responsibility; so when the 
Employment and Service Department here at 
Premo was in need of a reliable and competent man, 
Louis was again asked to advance to a better posi- 
tion. He is also chairman of our Shop Safety Com- 
mittee as well as Editor of the Premo section of the 
Kodak Magazine. Other work, such as sanitary 
inspection, packing, shipping, stock records and 
management of the lunch room, comes under his 

And now you may ask, "How did Wheeler work 
his way up without an education?" There is only 
one answer to such a question, but one secret to 
success in this world, and the whole idea is summed 
up in these few words : 

When a man stops learning, he stops growing. 


Polly Hamlin, of the Leather Case Department 
was adopted by the Eastman Kodak Company 
in 1903, when the Rochester Optical Works -was 
taken over. Miss Hamlin started to work at 
camera covering in 1895 and has been continuously 
employed at the one line of work, covering 
cameras and case making. She has a splendid 





Louis Kalmbacher, Assistant Foreman of the 
Covering Department, is an expert when it comes 
to spreading glue. He got his start at camera 
covering as a youngster way back in 1888 when he 
worked in the old Bee Hive Building on Aqueduct 
Street. Louis has stuck to glue ever since, and is 
hanging up a splendid record. 

Louis takes no chances with the street cars. He 
lives in the extreme northern part of the city, 
but he always walks to work. This means starting 
a half hour earlier than he would have to if he 
came on a car, but Louis is glad to do it and he 
always gets here on time. 


Don't forget that all Premo Works news must 
reach the Plant Editor l.>y the 10th of the month in

We recei\ed a picture post card a few flays ago 
from one of our visiting nurses. Bertha Mischler, 
who is now in Keniz. Bern. Switzerland. She sends 
her best wishes to us all. 

"Lem" Hosford of the Cabinet Department when 
asking to be excused for a few days so he could 
attend the Hemlock Fair, said, "By heck, I haven't 
missed one of those fairs in thirty years." 

We are glad to have back with us Lena Latta, of 
the Box Camera Department, who has been away 
since June 9th on account of illness. 

The first annual dance of the Premo Club was 
held Friday evening, October 22. Being a masquer- 
ade dance, many pretty and novel costumes were 
in evidence. Prizes were awarded ladies and gentle- 
men for the prettiest and most comic costumes. 
Refreshments were served and music was furnished 
by the Premo Club Orchestra, consisting of six 
pieces. About 70 couples were in the grand march 
and they were finally led to the witch camp where 
their fortimes were told. 

Sucli a good time was had that the program was 
finished before they knew it and it was time to travel 
home. The common yell was "Don't forget the 
next dance on November 19." 

Michael Strebler has been promoted to take charge 
of the Receiving and Supply Department.

A Coney Island Sausage and Corn Roast was held 
by the Employment and Service Department at the 
home of Mr. and Mrs. Wni. Gerstner. 146 Turpin 
Street. In spite of the continuous downpour of 
rain which lasted all day and evening, fourteen of the 
employees left the Works at 5:30 P. M.. transporta- 
tion being furnished by Jennie Walzer, Joseph Isaac 
and Louis Wheeler who loaned their time and autos 
to transport the crowd tluongh the severe rainstorm. 
They were soon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. 
Gerstner where Margaret Kreckman, Mrs. C. 
Patterson and Mrs. A. MacXally prepared the 
roast. ^Ir. Gerstner anticipating that the afl'air 
would have to be held indoors had his cellar prettily 
decorated with flags and bunting and set up with a 
stove and table which made an ideal Rathskeller for 
just such an outing. After all had had enough to 
eat, games were played and fortunes told by Mrs. 
Rebecca Clair, after which all join-neyed to the 
music room, where they were entertained until a 
late hour. They wish to thank Mr. and Mrs. Gerst- 
ner for their kindness in throwing their home open 
for this outing. 

Philip Voclckel, Jr., who has Iiad charge of the 
Receiving and Supply Department for the past 
five years, has been transferred to take charge of the 
.\ccessor\- Department. "Phil" is an old timer, 
having spent the last twenty-three years at camera 
making, and it will not take him long to adapt him- 
self to his new work. 

Walter Saxe of the Plant Maintenance Depart- 
ment has left the employ of the Premo Works and 
entered the Rochester Shop School as teacher of 
electricitv. Good luck, "Walt."

It seems to be inevitable^ that the things the 
Camera Works attempt go far beyond the expecta- 
tions of the brightest optimist, whether it be work or 
pleasure. The recent drive for membership of the 
Recreation Club was no exception to the rule, and, 
while we are not boasting of our infallibility in any 
respect, nevertheless, we are proud of our record 
in drives, whether they are for Liberty Loans, Red 
Cross, Community Chest, Thrift Stamps, or Em- 
ployees Clubs. It only proves that the co-operative 
spirit we possess is paying dividends in efficient 
organization for the material benefit of Managers 
and Employees. 

The ruling last May issued by the company, re- 
garding the matching of dollar for dollar raised by 
the employees for Athletic and Social Activities, 
did much to encourage and foster the idea of a 
permanent Recreation Club. The physical impos- 
sibilities of the Camera Works possessing outdoor 
tracks and diamonds can not be overcome as present 
conditions stand, and unlike Kodak Park, the 
possession of an assembly hall has been very vague. 
With the Recreation Club established, however, the 
future may hold in store something more tangible in 
the way of accommodation, and tiie more we pull 
together, the stronger and more efficient our Club 
will become. 

The temporary organization formed for the pur- 
pose of encouraging athletics, has done wonders, and 
has had many an obstacle to surmount. We have 
got a good start, having a representative Ba.seball 

Team, several Department Teams, two Girls' 
Basketball Teams, an Indoor Baseball League, a 
main Bowling Team, a Bowling League, a Tennis 
Team, a Football squad and the nucleus of a Cricket 
Team. We have had dances and parties and 
tournaments, and all this, as before mentioned by a 
temporary organization! Now let's see how much 
better we can do things with an established Club, 
governed by a constitution and duly elected 

Art Burchard could have told the Office baseball 
team that Rutan's famous Brownies were fire eaters 
when it came to the diamond and baseball; 
Burchard's team put up a good fight, but the 
Brownies' team was too strong for them, scoring 
a victory of ten to eight. 

The cycle of outdoor amusements relating to the 
social order of things has now turned to Sausage 
and Corn Roasts, and the girls in the Brownie Cov- 
ering Department evidently started the ball rolling 
in that direction. Last month Isabel W^aser 
invited several girls to the home of her sister, Mrs. 
Wells, on the Britton Road, where a goodly spread 
of sausages and corn awaited them. They chose 
for their environment the corn field. No record is 
available as to the frolics of uninvited mice, but 
several burned fingers resulted from "sausage 
snatching," which was part of the fun. Ed. King of 
the Main Office was chief cook, and Ed. Freher was 
commandeered as the Official Photographer. Every- 
one expressed their appreciation of the good time 
they had, and particularly to Isabel and herjsister. 






Here's to you, Jim, and may you be with us until 
the clock strikes thirteen, and then we'll all be out 
of luck. 

Possibly the most familiar figure in the tool 
room — at least among the older employees in point 
of service — is James Love. Jim — as the boys call 
him — has just attained the age of 7.3 years "young," 
and the word young is not a joke either. Those of 
us who have seen Jim do his famous Buck and Wing 
dance, have often coveted his remarkable energy 
and vitality. 

Jim started on his career as a machinist and tool 
maker in a little old shanty — long since gone to 
oblivion — known by the name of Dillinghurst's 
Gun Shop, situated on the corner of Main and Water 
Streets. That was in the days of 1865, >vhen 
Father Rochester was just growing into manhood. 
Jim's next move was to the N. Y. C. Railroad shop 
at Brown Street, where, by the way, he worked with 
his chum's father, Mr. Frank Watkey, Sr. 

It was in 1892 that Jim first became acquainted 
with the Eastman Company. The Hawk-Eye 
factory has grown out of an old time building 
occupied by the Photo Materials Company which 
featured the manufacture of cameras and supplies. 
Here Jim worked with Charlie Speidel an(l Jack 
Robertson. Those were wild days according to all 
evidence — days before the onslaught of prohibition- 
ists. Jim could tell some great stories of how the 
"gang" behaved in days. 

The older friends of Jim presented liini with a 
box of cigars as a token of their regard, whereupon 
Jim told how, when he was a stripling, he always 
hoped to live to be seventy-five and now by golly, 
he hopes to be with us at ninety — and so say all of us. 

An informal rece]:)tion was given in honor of Mrs. 
Henrietta Aiken by the girls of the Lens Insjicction 
Department at the home of Catherine Shoman. 

After about nine years of service in the employ of 
the Camera Works, Mrs. .\iken leaves to make her 
home in Chicago. "Nettie" was a good pal anfl will 
be greatly missed by her host of friends. 


The Bowling League of the Camera Works is well 
under way at this date of writing, and the season 
promises to be an enjoyable one. The eight teams 
comprising the League are pretty equally matched, 
and great interest is being displayed among the 
bowlers for high scores. The ("aptains are as

The league meets at the Genesee Hall each Friday 
at eight o'clock practicing until 8:30, when the 
regular scheduled games start. Chas. Collins, 
Charlie Rogers and Herbert Thorpe comprise the 
advisory committee. Frank Bisnett is Secretary 
and Wm. Stark, Treasurer. 

The eight captains of the league met to discuss 
the formation of the main team to play in the 
Eastman Kodak League. Fred Brehm explained 
that the team this year would be chosen on the 
recommendation of the eight captains of the Camera 
League. Ballots were cast to this effect, the results 
showing the following line-up for the big five.

Champion Tennis Player, Camera Works 




We were just in time to see the decorations adorning 
the desk of Margaret Williamson, and, after a fleal 
of persuasion we enticed Margaret to stand up and 
"be took." Billie Lawrence had better look to his 
laurels as a "desk decorator," for by all appear- 
ances, someone in the Purchasing Department has 
been taking a correspondence course in the art of 

Never mind, Margaret, we noticed a very pretty 
electric lamp among the bric-a-brac, and you know 
how happy we are to be happy with you and the 
lucky fellow, whoever he may be. 

Keep your eye on the Camera Works Soccer 
Team! Our team is captained by Jimmie Gordon 
of the Buffing Room and several native-born sons 
are making splendid progress in the game. The 
team has linked up with the New York North 
Western League and our boys hope to make a very 
creditable showing, in spite of the fact that Roch- 
ester has several first-class Elevens. We hav'e, to 
our credit, victories over Kodak Park, and the 
game with Hawk-Eye resulted in a win of eight 
goals to three. 

Get interested in this sport. It's fast and excit- 
ing. Jimmie or Bill Mostyn — Press room, will be 
glad to give you the dope. 

The Covering Department held its fourth 
annual sausage roast at Gussie Bornkessel's summer 
home at AVindsor Beach. The Committee in charge 
of the sjjorts and arrangements provided a very

lowing people:

.\ge, 9 months 

We haven't to date published any baby pictures 
in the Camera Works Section, prmcipally owing to 
lack of space, but we positively couldn't pass up 
this one! George Whitcomb is the proud father 
(and also the photographer). 

One of these days, when we are not pressed for 
space, we will run a Baby Competition, and then 
we'll show 'em "what's what!" 

This baby's name is Dorothy, and for the age of 
just over nine months is a very fine "wee bairn." 




We understand that Hal Baldwin is fast becoming 
a real musician and has astonished the other mem- 
bers of the band with his technique and expression. 
We see a possible leader of a Camera Works band 
in Hal — should such au organization ever be formed. 

The Crease and Cover Department held their 
Seventh Annual Picnic at Manitou Beach, being 
conveyed there by automobiles. A practice ball 
game was played whilst awaiting dinner. At '2:00 
o'clock the welcome sound of Odenbach's dinner 
bell was beard, and everybody won the"'luncheon 
dash!" The weather man was evidently peeved at a 
picnic butting into the sausage roast season, and he 
let fall a considerable amount of rain. The boys 
and girls adjourned to the dance hall, and every- 
thing was as good as the efScient committee could 
arrange. Frank McCarthy was general chairman. 

Fred Ruhe will go down in history as a first-class 
entertainer in the sausage roast line, if reports are 
true. Fred had "the bunch" from the Creasing 
Department down at his farm in Henrietta, and 
he showed the boys some real farm life. Of par- 
ticular interest was his eight per cent, cellar! Fred's 
horse was also highly spirited, as it ran off on a five 
himdred yard dash while Fred was demonstrating 
how to dispose of cider! 

John Braim passed out the dogs at the hot stand. 

The Etched Plate combined with the Main Office 
Engraving Department in an outing at Point 
Pleasant last month. Dinner and supper were 
served at the hotel, and great excitement was 
caused by somebody donating two dozen bottles of 
real home brew! The Etched Plate played a ball 
game with the Engraving, resulting in the latter 
winning by a score of 12 to 8. Autos were provided 
for the bunch and the affair was voted a complete 
success. Bill Yax had charge of the arrangements. 

Most fish stories are apt to be doubted, but the 
picture below proves that John Smith is a fisherman 
of the first water! Jolm and his good wife spent 
their vacation at Xewborrow Lake, Ontario, Canada, 
and, although John omitted to send the editor 
actual samples of his fish, nevertheless we must 
admit our jealousy at his remarkable catch. 


The baseball game between the Brownies and 
the Office was akin to the "last rose of summer," in- 
so-far as the game was the last before Indoor Base- 
ball starts. It almost appeared as if the rooters had 
saved their enthusiasm all the season for this 
particular game, and the girls were especially 
demonstrative in their cheering. 

The game was played on October 9th at Genesee 
Valley Park. Rutan pitched for the Brownies and 
Miles for the OfEce. Rutan gave five hits and 
struck out fourteen men. Miles allowed nine 
hits and struck out six of the Brownies. A 
fine example of fielding was displayed by Ernie 
White, and Freidenwald boosted the Brownie score 
by his splendid hitting. A remarkable feature of 
the game was that no bases on balls were given by 
either pitcher. The score, after a period of one hour 
and a half, was Brownie — eight. Office — two in the 
ninth. It was a good game and was attended by a 
large crowd. 

The boys and girls in the Stock Record Office are 
indebted to Pauline Stockslader for her efficiency in 
keeping the office at an even temperature. Pauline 
seems to have a special job opening and closing the 
windows as the weather requires. 

We have received the following letter, with a 
request that it be published in this magazine: 

"I wish to extend my sincere thanks and gratitude 
to the Medical Department of the Eastman Kodak 
Co., and especially to Dr. Sa-nyer and the Visiting 
Nurses, for the kindness and attention given me 
during my recent illness."

The Camera Works was well represented in the 
Company Golf Tournament, played at Genesee 
Valley Park. Saturday. October 9th. and several 
of our boys made good scores. It has been a com- 
mon error to suppose that golf was a "past-time" 
especially designed by the Scotch for those in the 
"Autumn" of life. Some of our "Springers," how- 
ever, such as John Henry and John Heaphy took ex- 
ception to this fallacy. We guess the\- are right, 
for it's a man-sized job to putt the pill around an 
18-hole golf course. 





Hello there, Mr. or Miss New Employee! 

How are things going? 

A little strange! 

Well, they're sure to be at first, but you'll soon 
get to know the job and the people working with 

What! You haven't made many acquaintances 
here yet? 

Why? Introduce yourself. There's a jolly good 
bunch of boys and girls at the Camera Works who'll 
be tickled skinny to help you know the ropes. 

You know. Buddy, what you have heard about 
the Camera Works spirit? Well, it's true, all of it, 
and then some ! You get acquainted with a bunch 
and you'll stick. 

Ask your Foreman the whys and wherefores. 
He'll tell you — that's his job, and he is not a bit 
stuck on himself either. Just a regular guy and 
anxious to see you make good. 

I'll tell you a good way to wedge into the sporting 
side of our Factory doings — join the Recreation 
Club. Costs you, Mary, fifty cents a year, and you, 
Jolin, one dollar. About two thousand Kodak 
makers at State Street belong to it, and if you can't 
get your share of amusements out of a club with a 
membership of this size, you deserve to be lonely. 

Oh ! I almost forgot to put you wise to one import- 
ant thing about us — although I guess you must have 
noticed it by now. What do you think the "man 
in the street" calls us? Listen! "Safety Bugs." 

I've been here for ten years or more and have 
never heard anyone working here take exception to 
our title. Why, we boast of Safety as our middle 
name! It's almost as familiar to us as the word 
Kodak. We tried to impart it in all our actions, 
and believe me, it pays. Remember the little meet- 
ing you were called to, up on the seventh floor, 
where the swell offices are? That was our Safety 
Inspector who told you the rules of the Factory. 
Not a bit stand-offish was he? That's his job to 
make this factory safe for you to work in, and its up 
to you to come across fifty-fifty and then we'll feel 
that no accidents can haunt us. 

I'll wager the Fire Drill had you guessing too! It 
almost seemed foolisli at first, but after you got 
thinking what would happen if a real fire got under 
way — and you didn't know whether to run to the 
door, holler for help, or crawl under the bench, 
it doesn't appear as foolish as it looks. We are 
mighty proud of what the management has done 
for us in this particular line — and a good many 
more too, and we want you to feel the same way 
about things as we do. 

It takes a little time before a fellow feels his feet 
and then there's — oh! — what do you think of the 
dining room? I guess it was a revelation to you. 

You know how it digs into a dollar bill to get a 
bite up town. Here, it's everything served at cost 
and cleaner than a whistle. 

Did you ever figure out the space such a dining- 
room takes up? Room enough there for a big 
manufacturing department, but it's given to us just 
to eat in. Remember when we had to rluck around 
the corner to a saloon and scramble for a table, 
adorned with pewter spoons and crumbly piles of 
bread? Them were not the happy days. 

Gee! I could go on and tell you so much dope 

about what we do in this factory, but you know how 
editors are! Just because they've got a soft job — 
and nothing to do but stick their feet up on the 
desk and smoke cigarettes — they grab a pair of 
shears and cut out about half the good stuff just for 
the want of exercise. Scared some good writer will 
get their job, I suppose. 

Well, see you at noon. If I don't see you first, 
come right up and get acquainted. I'll put you 
wise to a host of good things. 

So long, Stick to it. 
Yours to a cinder, 



One of our Live Wires 

Those of us who have had the fortune to be at the 
Camera Works since 1895, will undoubtedly re- 
member J. H. Moise, who at that time had charge 
of the Repair Department. Mr. is the 
proprietor of stores in New York City and Brooklyn, 
known by the name of "Kodak Hospitals." He has 
for his motto, "In today — out tomorrow." He is 
one of the oldest employees who visits the Main 
Office twice a year, when he renews acquaintances, 
and leaves a substantial order for camera parts. 

The Shutter Room is recording its full share of 
marriages, and we are pleased to announce that 
Alice Ovenberg was married on Monday, October 
18th. Best wishes Alice. 

Irene McGraw was married to Clarence Wick of 
the Crease and Cover Department on October the 
19th. Congratulations to you both. 



Vice-President, Rochester Cricket Team 

Possibly the least known sport connected with 
our activities in this plant is Cricket. For some 
reason unknown, this form of amusement has never 
been popular in this part of the States, although 
Philadelphia and several southern cities boast of 
first-class Cricket teams. The one organization of 
its kind in the city has its field at Genesee Valley 
Park and the game is certainly interesting enough 
to spend a Saturday afternoon watching the boys 

The game is somewhat similar to baseball only 
that there are eleven players, two batting, and two 
bowling in the same innings. Jimmie Fielding of 
the Tin Shop and Horace Blackwell of the Leather 
Cutting Department can tell you all the ins and 
outs of the game. Get in touch with them through 
the factorv mail svstem. 


We regret to annoimce the death of George 
Armstrong, who has been with us quite a long time, 
working in the Press Department. Frankfort Lodge, 
No. 579 I. O. O. F. had charge of the funeral which 
was conducted from the Asbury Methodist Church. 
The following boys from the press room acted as 
bearers. William Thompson, Martin Ryan, Fred 
Ross, Frank Bisnett, Roy Scott, and Alfred Snyder. 

Sympathy is extended to the relatives from his 
many friends. 


How do we stand on membership? Well, the 
Department quotas came in so fast that any at- 
tempt to advertise them before this date was beyond 

The officers of the club were called together to 
discuss the ways and means of conducting a drive 
for members, and it was decided to appoint them as 

The following were the departments assigned to 

Mrs. Kane — 7th and 1st floor offices. Engineering, 
Inspection, Lacquer, Factory Stock Record, Lens 

Frank Reynolds — All Superintendents, Foremen 
and Specials. 

Leslie Hammond — Janitors, Salvage, Press, Store, 
all Maintenance Departments, Foreign Shipping and 
Woodworking Departments. 

Harold Marson — Tool, Lathe, Etched plate. Die 
Casting, Finishing, Photostat, Riveting, and all 
Buffing and Dipping Departments. 

Wm. Stark — Bellows and Leather, all Brownie 
Departments, Shutter Machining and Assembling, 
Print and Paper Cutting. 

Chas. Rogers — All Kodak Assembling Depart- 
ments, Crease and Cover Department. 

These Captains appointed in turn, a Lieutenant 
in each depatrment. Fred W. Brehm acted as 
Advisor and Herbert S. Thorpe as Secretary and 
Manager. The chive started at 8:00 A. M. Thurs- 
day, September 30th and at noon of the same day, 
applications began to pour in to Industrial Rela- 
tions Department. A banner was proposed for the 
first department or departments under one Super- 
intendent reaching the 100 per cent, mark, and the 
Tool Room earned for Arthur Wallace the distinc- 
tion of "going over the top." The Engineering, 
Kodak Assembling and Inspection Departments 
followed a very close second, and the S. O. S. for 
"more applications" kept the telephone girls busy 
switching the Captains on to the Secretary. 

The following are the total figures up to the date 
of writing this article (October 12). Men 1,573; 
women, 652. Grand total 2,225. 

Membership is open at all times to all employees 
of the Camera Works. The cost — including the 
official badge of the Recreation Club — is one dollar 
for men and fifty cents for women. The year ends 
on September 30th of each year. 

Applications can be obtained from Secretary 
pro tem H. S. Thorpe, Industrial Relations 

Congratulations to George Simpson of the Wood- 
working Department on the occasion of his marriage 
to Francis Kruse, late of the Shutter Room. The 
wedding took place at the home of the bride's 
mother on Phelps Avenue, and the happy couple 
left for a short honeymoon, after which they will reside 
at Genesee Park Boulevard. The boys of the 
Woodworking Department presented George with 
a very handsome fifty-four piece set of silver, and 
all of us wish the bride and groom many long j-ears 
of happiness. 


The winter season of indoor athljtics has an 
auspicious beginning in the fact of a ten-team 
league devoted to Indoor Baseball. S. J. O'Conner, 
Suggestion — is Manager, and Exposition Park has 
been secured for practice and match games. The 
league will run on regular schedule which is being 
prepared at this time of writing. .\n all-star team, 
representative of the Camera Works, will be chosen, 
and this organization will challenge other teams in 
the industrial world. The following are the 
Managers of the teams. 

H. Marson C. Hohman

J. Glcisle H. Dennis 
A. Burcliard .\. Weltzer 

G. Rapp P. Petrin 

Last year we had a very successful six-team 
league, and this year the enthusiasm should run 
high as the captains have proven their worth in 
managing dei)artmental teams. We will publish 
from month to month the standing of the teams and 
important events as they occur. 




At the Monroe County Championship meet held 
at University Fiekl on Saturday, October '2nd, the 
Hawk-Eye track team carried ofl' the two rehiy 
races and, incidentally, the two large cups given the 
winners of these events. A team composed of 
Fratter, Authaler, Vass and Lovesky won the 
half-mile relay in the fast time of 1 min. -10 1-5 
sec, which is 3-5 sec. faster than that made by the 
crack Y. M. C. A. team in the City Championship 
meet of 1915. In the ^Medley Relay, the same 
Hawk-Eye team made a wonderful showing, after 
having had only a few minutes rest between the 
two relay races. Vass, the last runner for Hawk- 
Eye, nosed out tht University runner by 7 yards 
and won the Medley Relay for Hawk-Eye. Time, 
5 min. 29 2-5 sec. 

Fratter took first place in the 100-yard and 220- 
yard dashes, winning the former in 10 2-5 sec. 
and the latter in 23 4-5 sec. 

Authaler took fourth place in the 100-yard dash. 

N'ass and Lovesky took second and third places 
in the 440-yard dash. 

The Hawk-Eye team took fourth place in the 
meet with a six-man team against the Old Timers 
A. C, who, with a team of 39 men, took first place; 
the Y. M. C. A. with 19 men took second place, 
and the All-Collegiates with 37 men took third 
place. Ten teams were entered in the meet.

Kodak supremacy in Rochester industrial athletic 
circles rose to another higher level in the play-off 
for the city industrial championship. Not content 
with securing the "muslin" in the Kodak League, 
the Hawk-Eye management at once challenged the 
Art in Buttons team to play a series of best-two- 
out-of-three games for the title. The challenge was 
accepted, and the first game was staged at Ritter 
Field on Saturday, September i5th. 

Art in Buttons, the champions of the I. A. R. A., 
had suffered but one defeat all season, while their 
win column totaled sixteen. Hawk-Eye finished 
- its league season with a record of thirteen victories 
and three defeats. On paper. Art in Buttons 
appeared to be the stronger: however, the Hawk- 
Eye boys found little difficulty in taking two 
straight games from the button-makers. 

"Beany" Graham, the sensation of the I. A. R. 
A., took the mound against "Douber" Marcille 
in the initial contest. Art in Buttons contributed 
nine costly errors behind their star pitcher, which 
fact coupled with the timely hitting of the Brennan- 
ites produced the 0-5 win for the Hawk-Eye. 

The same fighting spirit that carried the Hawk- 
Eye players to the topj of the E. K. circuit was set 
in motion the first time they came to bat. Fox, 
leading off for the St. Paul St. brancli, drew a pass, 
was sacrificed to .second by Levine and came 
all the way home on the misplay of Weideman's 
tap. This run gave the Kodak Champs the desired 
confidence and in the second turn at bat our len.s- 
makers collected a count of six. 

Ingleby produced a single and advanced to tliird 
on Felerski's double. \'an Lare singled, scoring 
Ingleby and Felerski. Three hits in a row were 
weakening to Graham, so much so that he "muzzled" 
"Douber's" bunt. Fox was again passed, filling 
the bases. Dodge was unable to get under Levine's 
sky offering and all three men on base counted. 
A sacrifice and a costly error manufactured the 
sixth run, Levine scoring on the plays. 

The Hawks rested for the next two innings and 
then came back with their second wiufl. With 
two down in the fifth, Ingleby again singled; 
Felerski strolled to first. Both scored a little later 
when ^'an Lare came through with his second hit 
of the day, a slashing douljle. From then on 
Hawk-P>ye shifted from attack to defense and 
accorded Marcille fine support. 

The I. A. R. A. leaders scored a run in the third 
and one in the sixth by bunching hits. Their last 
stand in the ninth netted them three runs when 
"Douber," seeing victory in sight, eased up and 
gave the button boys four hits and two 

The hero for a day in the first (Migagement was 
Harry ^loore. Harry was nearly put out of com- 
mission when "Jerry" Schiefen do\e headlong into 
his dining room in reaching first. Bruisecl and 
badly shaken up, Moore continued the game, 
accepting fourteen chances with but one mispla\-.

out of the box. If such was the case. Manager 
Brennan outguessed the Champeney Terrace crew. 
He selected his reserve pitcher, Norman Graham, 
to do mound duty against his namesake, "Beany." 

The team gave "Norm" the best of support, 
only one misplay being registered in the error 
column. This came in the eighth and resulted in 
the only run allowed the button-makers. 

Hawk-Eye scored her first runs in the fourth, 
registering two tallies. Felerski singled; Van Lare 
managed to reach first on a bone play; Prentice's 
infield line forced Felerski at third; Graham walked. 
Fox was an easy out, but Levine then came across 
with a hit and both runners crossed the plate in 

Hawk-Eye scored her final run in the fifth after 
one man was down. Petersen singled, Felerski 
strolled to first; Petersen scored when Van Lare 
hit for a double. 

"Norm" Graham held the button-boys to seven 
hits, keeping them well scattered. On top of his 
good hurling he showed the world he was some 
"Graham Cracker" by cracking out two hits, a 
single and a double. 

The second game followed on October '■2nd. 
Moore being unable to play. Manager Brennan 
brought \'an Lare in from riglit field to first. Pren- 
tice filled the garden position. Dame Rumor 
had it that A. in B. was ail set to knock Marcille 

Mrs. R. L. Gilmore, of the Production Depart- 
ment, entertained at her home, 101 Flectric Avenue, 
on Wednesday, October 6th. The other girls of the 
same department were the guests at what was 
scheduled to be quite a little "stag" affair. Mrs. 
Gilmore opened the evening with a dinner and 
everything looked rosy for a serene and quiet 
evening of gossip and chatter. 

Trouble always has to "horn in." This time it 
came in the form of Raymond "Pat" Mengel and 
Claude "Paulia" Early, of the Production Depart- 
ment, with a j)air of kindred s])irits in tow. 
I'libidden, unannounccti, uninvited, and unafraid 
they oozed into the party and out again, but not 
without leaving their footprints in the form of 
empty candy boxes and similar signs of devastation. 
They danced and sang (the crowning insult) and 
"Pat" lost his spats. The invaders were finally 
dispersed and retreated with the promise that they 
would never be .so impolite as to waddle into another 
party without the necessary credentials.

You can't Bathe in the Lake — 
It's too Cold in the Park — 
Your Garden is Gone — 
Your Flowers are all Picked — 
You can't take in a Movie 
Every night — 
You Can't Dance all 
The While— 

But you can spend some pleasant evenings after 
visiting the Library some Tuesday or Friday Noon. 

' The girls of the Pitch Buttoning Department 
wish to express their sincere sympathy to Evelyn 
Price, whose brother passed away recently. 

Mrs. Matilda Cooper has been welcomed by the 
Pitch Buttoning Department, after spending several 
weeks visiting in Canaaci. 

Lucy Tate and Dorothy Kucht have returned 
from their trip to Holland, where they spent most 
of the past summer. Both girls report a rare good 
time and were not seasick once. No, not once! 


If you think that the good old game of baseball 
does not renew youth, you should have seen the 
collection of little girls and two stray boys at Bill 
Schlegel's house on the night of October 8th. You 
would hardly have associated the sleek-haired, 
round-cheeked, silk-socked youth, with the dignified 
1st baseman, until he beamed on you with that rare 
smile, and everyone shouted "Oh, look at Chub," 
meaning Lois Kurtz, and Sister Ruth in a baby blue 
dress and a beflowered hat was just too sweet for 
anything. The other fellow who sported a pipe 
and a jazz bow, was our friend, Alice Gears. 

Two sweet dears in cunning white frocks proved 
to be Grace Wiemer and Ethel Reinhardt, and the 
tall, serious-eyed, studious looking girl in the serge 
dress says of course her right name is Pauline 
Krzywick, but her best beau calls her Paulie. 

A Scotch lassie in plaid, socks and a red bow, a 
clown, and a sweet faced baby boy (the Mascot, 
Marion Kurtz), also joined in the fun. Then there 
was the dark stranger who must have been getting 
some Library books — her outfit was topped off 
with a Bow of Orange Ribbon. And last, but not 
least, Magdalen Hettel — Student, Musician and 
Pitcher — and the greatest of these is the pitcher. 
The party was a medley of noise, eats, drinks, music, 
and fun from beginning to end and whoso envieth 
not the Baseball Girls knoweth not what she misses. 





"Jack" Farrell's liarrl hittinjj Brass Dei)artnient 
team came into its own when it defeated the clever 
playing Achromatic Lens team in the "world series" 
for the H. E. A. A. Championship. It took but 
two games of the schefhiled three game series to 
show the superiority of the first floor men. 

The "world series" was arranged to bring the 
winners of the Eastern League in conflict with the 
winners of the Western League. Both teams 
finished their schedules with seven wins and two 
defeats, and entered the finals seemingly on even 
terms, but the first game showed that hitting the 
ball square on the nose is what wins ball games. 

Martin Tipple, the celebrated I. A. R. A. League 
umpire, handled the indicator l)ehind the bat, 
while James Weldon. the Kodak Golf Champion, 
passed out the base decisions. The work of both 
officials was prai.seworthy and added greatly in 
making the games interesting. 

Bleier and Bleier performed the battery work for 
the Brass Room. In the first game the third floor 
boys were let down with two hits, and in the second 
they were able to secure but four. Doyle and 
Bryson did the twirling for the Eastern League 
champs and both were unat)le to baffle the Western 
League aggregation, who produced hits when hits 
counted for runs. The final scores in favor of the 
Brass men were 8-3 and I'-i-e. 

Dwyer, of the Achromatic, and Kohlman, of the 
Brass, provided the fielding features of the exhibi- 
tions, while Burham and C. Bleier, of the Brass 
team, producefi the heavy hitting. 

The players taking part in the series follows: 

Achromatic — Dwyer, Bryson, Marcille, Kowalski, 
Scheuch, McGarrity, Rosenthal and Witz. 

Brass — Burham, \an Lare, Kohlman, R. Bleier, 
C. Bleier, Gears, Knapp, Durkin and Freitag. 

Immediately after the second game. President 
Vass, in behalf of the H. E. A. A., presented the 
members of the winning team with classy watch

Paul Witz, of the Single Achromatic Lens Depart- 
ment, has been appointed manager of the Hawk-Eye 
Bowling team for the coming season. The prospects 
for a successful team are good, with a nucleus of 
last year's rollers to build on. 

Trials for the team were held on the Genesee 
.\lleys on Friday, October 8th, and a team will be 
.selected from the following: 

George Kosel, Howard Werner, James Weldon, 
Robert Witz, Alexander Topel. Walter Stephany, 
Michael Becker. 


For several weeks past the musical members of 
the Hawk-Eye Athletic Association have been 
rehearsing under the leadership of Frank A. New- 
man, foreman of the Cleaning and Inspecting 
Department, for one of the red letter events of the 
season — the Hawk-Eye Colonial Minstrels. 

Mr. Newman has gathered about him an array 
of talent that promises an evening of real entertain- 
ment. There seem to be those among us, heretofore 
blooming unseen, who will make Frank Tinney 
seem out of place on the stage. Some voices of 
exceptional calibre have been found, some end men 
of experience and a mixed chorus, at least half of 
which wall make the eyes of any audience bulge. 

Mr. Newman, besides drilling the show, has done 
considerable original work in arranging the material. 
He has handled .several min.strel shows in the past 
so that his experience in this line is bound to be of 
valuable assistance in Hawk-Eye's effort. 

As yet neither the date nor the hall have been 
definitely chosen, but tentative arrangements call 
for Monday, December 6th, in the Exposition Park 

After the show the floor will be cleared and the 
remainder of the evening given over to dancing. 


On October 2nd the Foremen's Club journeyed 
to Rifle Range to fill up on clams, lobster, and all the 
rest that goes to make a real clambake. Some 
forty-five people were corralled for the occasion and 
they did their best to put away all that was coming 
to them. Speeches were ruled "out of order" after 
the meal, and, consequenthv a game of ball came 
into existence. "Bobbie" Guilford outshone all 
.stars in this game — his spearing of the ball was 
magnificent — his errors numerous. The party 
broke up very early to allow those who wished to 
see the Hawk-Eve - Art in Buttons game to reach 
Ritter Field by 3:30 P.M. 

George Aulenbacher, foreman of the Assembling 
Department, was cliairman of the clambake and 
he surely "did himself noble." Thanks, George, 
we'll be with you again next year. 


Twenty-seven employees of the Hawk-Eye Works 
are taking advantage of the Company's offer to 
assist in bearing the expense of special courses taken 
in reputable educational in.stitutions. The courses 
range from elementary courses in English and 
Arithmetic to Machine Design and Mechanical 
Engineering. The plan affords excellent opportun- 
ity for emj)loyees to increase their value to them- 
selves and to the company. 

More people should take advantage of the chance 
to better themselves. It is a fortunate sign for 
any employee to display the ambition for increased 
capacity in this manner. 





A recent Saturday afternoon found the Yard 
Department men all dressed up and headed for the 
New^jort House. The trip down was made in 
private cars and two of the company's trucks. 
When everyone had arrived a group picture was 
taken. Then the Garage men lined up and were 
"mugged" by themselves. At 1:15 dinner was 
served, which consisted of nice broiled steaks with 
trimmings. A Kodak Park orchestra of four pieces 
played during the dinner. Ferre Marzlufif sang 
and also lead the Every-one song specials. He 
was ably assisted, at times, by Singleton of the 
Garage. Immediately after dinner several of the 
guests from Monte Carlo retired to the upstairs, 
where there was quite a heated argument for the 
rest of the afternoon as to who should pay expenses. 
Several from Africa started a golf game on the Ball 
Room floor. It was learned they were playing for 
new fall hats, etc., so look for the dressed up gentle- 
men to determine the winners. It was noticed 
that Pitts, of the office force, had a two-pound box 
of candy tucked in under his arm; whether he was 
a winner or squaring himself with his recent bride 
couldn't be determined. 

Someone suggested that we have some Ironde- 
quoit Bay water to drink. P^veryone got away 
with it in good shape, excepting Jack Robb, who 
said he swallowed an eel. 

After the dinners had become settled, the sports 
contests were run off, with the following results: 
12-lb. Shot Put . .Geo. Appleton. Eversharp pencil. 
100-yd. Dash. . . .H. Servise. Fountain pen. 

Pipe Race A. Caswell. Can of tobacco. 

Std. Broad Jump. F. Behnke. Pipe. 

Barrel Boxing. . . Wm. Sly, Jr. Carton of cigarettes. 

Quoit Games. . . Joe Matteson. Carton of Chewing. 

Then every one retired to the front lawn, where 
an old-time Dutch lunch was served. Immediately 
following this a championship wrestling match was 
staged between Bill Leistman and Sammie Moore, 
the stake being the famous old Brown Derby, 
which was destroyed before either could be crowned 
winner. This was followed by the ball game 
between the Garage and Yard. 

During the preceding week there was considerable 
talk of $100.00 side bet which must have been said 
by a stuttering man, because $10.00 was all the 
Yard collected for trimming the Garage by a 7 to 

Harold Servise and G. Appleton won the points 
for the winners, only one man succeeding in passing 
first base. The hitting of Jake Scheible and Dan 
Dailey were features of the game. Westfall and 
Quackenbush acted as umpires and because of their 
tough appearance no arguments were encoimtered. 

The committee in charge was composed of C. 
Darrow, E. Davis, E. Ades and A. R. White. 




Ever since its organization the Kodak Park 
Foremen's Club has been blessed with a flock of 
horseshoes. Everything it has undertaken has 
been a success, but the Cobourg outing was the one 
real winner. About 300 persons — members, their 
families and friends — boarded the train at Uptonville 
at l!2:30 for the docks at Charlotte. The Ontario 
Xo. 2 made a record for a quick getaway and the 
fun started before the last line was cast off. Most 
everyone roamed about the boat or ate lunch until 
2:00 o'clock, when "Jimmie" Hart called the crowd 
together on the top deck and the sport began. 

In the nursing bottle race, nipples were placed 
on bottles of soft drinks and given to the eager 
contestants. Miss C. H. Welch came through a 
"clean" winner (as well as a wet one) and Mrs. 
Schaffer won the second prize. We had the girls 
on the string in the gum drop race. Laura Con- 
naughton finished first in this event, with Anna 
Cosgrove second. Ida Lehr got away to a good 
start in the shoe race, winning by a shade over Beth 
St. Maurice, who received second prize, and Marion 
Burns, our sweet voiced telephone operator, added 
another article to her large collection of prizes won 
at Kodak Park entertainments, when she succeeded 
in destroying two large soda crackers and blowing 
them to the winds in an effort to whistle, in the 
cracker race. Esther Burton had some luck also, 
and came in second. The events for men were 
community affairs, in which Paul Seel's team 
scored a decisive win over that of "Jack" Shepherd. 
Five prizes were also awarded to the persons guessing 
nearest to the time the boat docked at Cobourg. 

One hour and a quarter were spent in Cobourg 
"seeing the town" before starting for home. The 
first hour of the return trip was devoted to a concen- 
trated attack on the "eats," after which the enter- 
tainers took the floor. Solos were sung by Mae 
La Rocher, Ben McMillan, Frank Wilmot and F. 
Marzluff, while several interesting numbers were 
given by the Bush entertainers. Dancing was 
enjoyed all during the trip, excellent music being 
furnished by an orchestra led by Charlie Weber. 

To those who did not attend we express our 
sincere sympathy. We who made the trip unite in 
expressing a vote of appreciation to the committee 


who did things up in such an able manner. It is 
to the following we are indebted: W. G. McAulifle, 
General Chairman; Transportation Committee, 
J. B. Castle, Chairman, A. I. MacFarland, F. J. 
Casey, Wm. Conners, R. C. Hands. E. P. Lott, A. 
Stalker; Finance and Tickets. J. Ward, Chairman, 
Chas. Suter. R. W. Cook, W. Doane, F. Parshall, 
A. White; Entertainment Committee. J. A. Hart, 
Chairman, J. Schaffer. J. Jenkinson. F. Henchen, 
A. Tenny, T. G. McCrossen. Susan La Dine, M. 
Ellis, Anna Beach, Mary Sullivan, M. Forbes, and 
C. Smith. Give "Jim" Harta megaphone and 
success naturallv is assured. 





Noon hour dancing was resumed in the Assembly 
Hall on Monday, October 18th. The plan of 
providing music for dancing during the winter 
months has met with the most enthusiastic approval 
by the many employees who take advantage of this 
type of recreation. 

The orchestra this year will be under the direction 
of Russell Ives, who has secured the services of 
several very competent musicians. 

Dancing will start at 12:15 and continue until 
12:50 each noon until further notice. Come up 
some noon, if you are not a regular patron, and 
shake yourself around. You will feel better for 
the afternoon work. 


The month of October found the Kodak I'ark 
Soccer Team in the midst of its Fall Series. Although 
our team has not shown up very well of late, due to 
three of the best players being out because of 
injuries, we feel that a better showing will be made 
during the last half of the schedule. 

Edward Allardice has been recently elected 
President to fill the vacancy caused l)y the resigna- 
tion of R. W. Eddon. 

At the meeting of the team held on September 
9th, delegates from the Camera Works team were 
entertained and the expressions voiced by James 
Gordon and Neville O'Connor were thoroughly 

There is a movement on foot to organize an indoor 
Soccer League this winter, composed of teams 
representing Hawk-Eye Works, Camera Works and 
Kodak Park. We are sure that this new venture 
would receive the unanimous support of the Soccer 


The Yard Department Bowling League, which 
has been very successful for the last three years, 
was recently organized for the 1920-1921 seasons. 
The following officers were elected: A. R. White, 
President; Jos. Matteson, Secretary; and Harold 
Servise, Treasurer. The League will have eight 
teams this year, namely: 


The Yard Riggers Bracht 

The Yard Office Servise 

Gas Trucks McGregor 

Electric Trucks Nelson

Alleys 9 to 16 have been secured at the Genesee 
Amusement Company on South Avenue, for Tues- 
day nights from 8:00 to 12:00. The games to start 
promptly at 8 :30. Fred Wagner has been appointed 
official referee. 


After thirteen years of almost continuous service 
at Kodak Park, Mamie Driscoll, of the Carbon 
Paper Department, left on October 2nd to assume 
a new position, that of keeping house, as Mamie 
was married recently, returning for a few weeks 
after her honeymoon. First coming to Kodak Park 
in October of 1906, she was employed in the Box 
Department, where she worked until August, 1907, 
at which time she left, returning again to this 
department in December of the same year. Since 
then she has been employed in the Film Pack, Pay 
Roll and Carbon Paper Departments. Her many 
friends will miss her kindly disposition and sunny 
smile, but all unite in wishing her continued success 
in her new "job."

The Second Annual Outing of the Research 
Laboratory was held at East Maplewood Park. 

The members of the research staff, their families. 
and friends began to arrive at the park at '2:30 p. m. 
The first event was a baseball game, starting shortly 
after 2:30, between the two rival teams — the 
Chemistry Department vs. the Physics and Photog- 
raphy Departments. Before the first inning was 
over the game was stopped by Umpires Billings and 
K. Huse on account of rain. After several starts 
the game went three innings between drops and 
then was called off, with the score standing six all. 
The features of the game were a Babe Ruth wallop 
for four sacks by Pitcher Emery Huse of the Physic- 
ists and Photographers, and the effective pitching of 
Pitcher Charles Brightman of the Chemists. As 
the contest was a bitter one. Umpires Billings anrl 
K. Huse are to be congratulated on escaping with 
their lives. Mr. Capstaff was on hand with the 
motion picture camera, searching for the famous 
follow through swing, but all that were registered 
were strike-outs. 

As the program committee, headed by Mr. Bush, 
had a program that provided for many indoor 
events in case of rain, everyone went to the summer 
house and the fun continued. The first indoor 
event, the famous Guzzle race for men and women, 
was won by Miss La Bar and Mr. Hodgson, after a 
thrilling contest. Then there was a tug-of-war for 
women, the two teams being captained by Miss 
Sullivan and Miss Schmitt. After several minutes 
of pulling, during which time we all thought the rope 
would break, the event was called a draw. Next 
was the tug-of-war for men, and as the two ball 
teams had played a tie game, it was decided that 
they should line up. After two pulls inside, each 
team winning one, it was decided to have the final 
pull on the ground, rain or no rain. A mighty 
conflict took place, and the Physicists and Photog- 
raphers finally won by inches, due to the able coach- 
ing of L. A. Jones. Then there was the coat 
race, in which Dr. Silberstein took a very active 
part; and also the International Balloon race — 
that for women being won by Miss Benedict, and 
that for men by Mr. Mungillo. Indoor tennis for 
the championship was next. Dr. Mees and Miss 
Schmitt beating all comers, until Mr. Gray and 
Miss Benedict took the championship. 

Everyone was then ready for the event called 
"eats," in which everyone took a most active part. 

The part of the outing that most of us will 
remember longest was the after-dinner speeches, 
interspersed by songs, presided over by Dr. Mees 
as toastmaster. We were all delighted to hear of 
Mr. Wratten's experiences during his trip from 
England and through New York City. 

Miss Davis then spoke for the Synthetic Labora- 
tory, and said that she was glad to see the Synthetic 
Laboratory in its new home out on the "farm." 

Several parodies were rendered by those ])resent, 
the parodies having been written bv meml)ers of 
the staff. 

The big of the evening was the presenta- 
tion of a loving cup to H. LeB. Gray in appre- 
ciation of his twenty-one years of service with the 
company. Dr. Silberstein. our youngest member 
in years of service, made the presentation speech. 
Mr. Gray expressed his sincerest thanks and told 

us that his idea of success was the goodwill of his 
fellow workmen. 


The tables were cleared away and the remainder 
of the evening was enjoyed in dancing. 

Everyone had a good time in spite of the inclement 
weather, and as Dr. Mees said: "We always have 
a good time because we carry our fun with us." 

"Joe" Cassard, of the Printing Department, is 
offering for sale a complete fishing outfit. Joe says: 
"For some reason or other, fishin' ain't what it used 
to be. 

Fred Ellis, traffic man of the E. C. & P. Depart- 
ment, is not "in mourning." That black hat he 
wears is a prize which his granddad won some years 

T. C. Van Beenen, of the E. C. & P. Department, 
has returned to work after a three months' tour 
of Europe. 

Ruth Bowie and John Schicker, of the E. C. & P. 
Department, were married on Thursday, September 
23rd. Congratulations. 

Harry Williams, of the E. C. & P. Department, 
has invested in a new house, and will be at home 
to his friends from now on if the coal man keeps 
his word. 

Building No. 30 expects to make a good showing 
in the K. P. A. A. League this season, with its team 
of consistent bowlers. Sloat is captain, with Boyer, 
Hart, Griswold and Downs for regulars, and Walch 
and Abel for substitutes.

Joseph Kenyon, promoted October 1st to 
take charge of all tracing in the Drafting Room, 
had a visit from the stork on Tuesday, October 
5th, when a little girl arrived. 

"Joe" says the promotion was opportune, coming 
just at this time, as a family of three children is 
considerable overhead in these days of high prices. 

Best wishes to "Esther May," Joe. 




The annual series between the All-Stars and the 
Colts, of the Testing Department, again resulted 
in a victory for the Stars. 

In 1919 with a score standing 1-1 to 12 against 
them the All-Stars batted in three runs in the last 
half of the 9th inning. Again in this series a final 
game was won in the same manner. With the score 
20 to 1.5 in favor of the Colts, six runs were scored 
by the All-Stars, giving them the game and series 
by the score 21 to 20. 

The Colts are advised to brush up on the Baseball 
rules so that they will be better prepared on plays 
that come up in the 1921 meet.

On Thursday evening, October 7th, the K. P. 
A. A. Bowling League was formally opened at the 
^ Genesee Bowling Hall. Dr. Reid, President of the 
Association, made a short opening address, after 
which he rolled the first ball of tlie season (rather 
the first three balls, as it took that number before 
he succeeded in connecting with the pins). 

Tlie following prizes will be awarded at the 
end of the season: Team Prizes: First, $25.00; 
second, $1,5.00; third, $10.00; fourth, $9.00; fifth, 
$8.00; sixth, $7.00; seventh, $C.O0; eighth, $5.00. 
High three games, $5.00; high single game, $5.00.

game, $3.00. 

Persons interested in bowling are invited to 
witness the matches which are rolled every Thursday 
evening and some good entertainment is promised

ment. Girls! Go up and help your steady cop one 
of the prizes. 


The first practice of the candidates for the Girls' 
Basketball was held on Friday evening, October 
8th, in the Assembly Hall. 

"Rip" Benzoni and .lack Brightman are coaching 
the girls and from all appearances we are going 
to have a first class team. Many new faces will be 
seen in the line-up this year. Among the most 
promising are Harriet Nobles, star of last season's 
Championship North East Electric team, and the 
Lee sisters, Edith and Ethel, who played on the 
Girls' Baseball team during the past summer. 

It is planned to have the girls' team play prelim- 
inaries to the regular games at Kodak Park during 
the entire season, and their first appearance will be 
made on Thanksgiving Eve, when the Kodak Park 
team meets the fast Tuscarora Indians in the 
opeiiing game. 

We wish to express our sympathy to George 
Perry, of the Yard Department, in his recent 
bereavement — the death of his wife. 

Marion Dalaska, of the Film Order Office, and 
Ralph Bemish, were married on September 14. 
Congratulations and best wishes. 

Helen Cauley and Howard Sauer, both of the 
Finished Film Office, Building No. 12, were married 
on September 22nd. All sorts of good luck to Helen 
and Howard. 

On Saturday, October 2nd, Maude McCann enter- 
tained the instructors of the Finished Film Training 
Department at a sausage roast at her country home, 
Hilton, New York. Everybody had a jolly good 
time. Maude certainly knows how to cook the 
sausages. After the eats, dancing was enjoved by 

After being absent from work for several weeks, 
due to sickness, J. Finucane and J. Dawson have 
returned to the Emulsion Coating Department. 


Coach Benzoni is much pleased with the prospects 
of Kodak Park's 1920-21 Basketball Team The 
first practice was held on Tuesday evening, October 
12th, and some very good material was on hand. 
Among the veterans who reported are "Bob" 
Heaney, '"Charlie" Thompson, .lack Brightman, 
and .James Weigand. Among the new men are 
Wilbur Woodams, of the Hawk-Eye Works; George 
Willis, both former U. of R. stars; A. R. Reilly, of 
Cornell; Tichnor, of Springfield Training, and 
Arthur Toung. With the addition of these men 
to our squad we may expect a most successful season 
and a strong bid will be made for the 
City Championship. 

The opening game will be played on Thanksgiving 
eve against the fast Tuscarora Indians. .\ prelim- 
inary game will be played Ijetween two girls" teams, 
and dancing will follow, music to be furnished by 
Damon's Orchestra. 

Join the Rooters' Club and follow our team this 
season. Your support will be a help to the players 
and you will have the best kind of a time. That's 




In the past it has been customary when the 
yearly drive for the Community Chest was over to 
let the matter drop entirely until it was time for 
the next campaign. The Kodak Park Executive 
Committee feels that much can be done during the 
year that will be of benefit during the actual cam- 
paign, and with this idea in mind the Visiting 
Committee plan has been inaugurated. 

Committees are being organized from among 
the employees which will visit the different institu- 
tions affiliated with the Chest with the idea in mind 
of offering, if necessary, constructive criticism, and 
to give our employees an opportunity to see just 
what is being done. The first committee, which 
was composed of Mrs. A. Treen, D. Sidnam, A. 
Bathwick, Z. Dennis, H. LeB. Gray, and R. A. 
Weber visited the Infants' Summer Hospital on 
Friday, September 24th. Following is a report 
submitted and signed by this committee: 

As a group of people interested in the affairs 
of the Community Chest we visited the Infants' 
Summer Hospital at Charlotte on Friday morning, 
September 24th, and were received very cordially 
by Miss Hastings, the superintendent of this 
institution. Miss Hastings seemed to be very glad 
to have the opportunity of showing us through her 
hospital, and the trip proved to be very interesting 
as well as enlightening. Our visit was made 
unexpectedly, and not during the regular visiting 

First of all we were conducted through the 
department where the food for the infants is pre- 
pared. This is a well managed department and 
each child has its own individual bottle which is 
marked with a tag. These bottles are sterilized 
as is everything used in connection with the 
preparation of the food. 

We next visited the diet kitchen, regular kitchen 
and dining rooms, all of which we found up-to-date 
and very clean. 

In the Main Building there are four wards, two 
on the first floor and two on the second. Each of 
these wards is light and airy and accommodates 
about 16 beds. On the third floor is an excellently 

equipped Pathological Laboratory, where analyses 
are made to determine the correct diagnosis and 
proper treatment without delay. Many severe 
and baflSing cases have been treated here during 
the past with wonderful success. 

The hospital is closed on October 1st, at which 
time all patients who are not well enough to be 
discharged are sent to other hospitals, where their 
treatment is continued until they are recovered or 
until the Summer Hospital opens again the following 

Absolutely no charge is made for any patient at 
this institution. All cases are taken without 
question, with the exception of contagious diseases. 
Patients are under the care of the resident doctor, 
he being assisted by two others who make their calls 
each day. Cases requiring special attention are 
cared for by the most able specialists. 

During this year there were 142 patients treated 
at the hospital. Miss Hastings, as Superintendent, 
has two assistants. The staff of the Institution 
consists of the superintendent, 2 assistants, 3 
doctors, 1 graduate dietitian, 1 assistant dietitian, 
55 graduate nurses and 32 attendants. 

We feel that this is one of Rochester's most worthy 
charities and entitled to all the help which is needed. 

We were unable to find one thing which could be 
criticized in any way, but on the other hand found 
much to be commended and praised. Very few 
people are aware of the good being done by this 
institution and we advise that others take advantage 
of the first opportunity to visit it. There is, 
perhaps, no place where our charity and goodwill 
can be devoted to greater benefit than the Infants' 
Summer Hospital, and we appreciate immensely 
the opportunity given us to view with our own 
eyes the wonderful work being done.

On Friday, October 29th, a masquerade, the 
first of the K. P. A. A. series of dances to be run 
during the winter months, was held in the Kodak 
Park Assembly Hall and proved to be a great suc- 
cess. The program for this season consists of six 
specialty dances. The first the masquerade held 
last month. Thanksgiving Party, November 26th; 
New Year's Eve Dance, December 31st; Moonlight 
Dance, January 28th; Danse Parisienne, February 
25th; and Spring Dance, March 25th. Damon's 
orchestra has been engaged for the entire series, 
assuring the best of music, and prizes are to be given 
at each party. 

A novel plan has been inaugurated which, it is 
believed, will meet with universal favor. Books 
of tickets have been printed containing twelve 
tickets, two for each date, which are being sold at 
§6.00 each, making the price of tickets 50 cents 
each, including the tax. A number of half books 
have also been prepared containing six tickets, these 
to be sold at $3.50. Single tickets as well as gate 
tickets are to be sold at 75 cents each. The book 
])lan is recommended very strongly for our em- 
ployees, as a considerable saving will be effected 
through the purchase of them. Books are on sale 
in the K. P. A. A. office and tickets for the different 
dances may be obtained at the Pay Roll, Dining

We have all heard a great deal about THAT 
Coburg trip made by the Foremen's Club, but few 
know of "Bob" Hall's hard luck on that day. 
"Bob" works in the Chemical plant and is off 
during the day. Sauntering down Main Street 
Satitrday morning it dawned on him all of a sudden 
that this was the day of the big trip. It was ten 
minutes to twelve when he thought of it and he im- 
mediately took a car and hurried to the B. R. & P. 
station, only to learn tiiat the train luul just left. 
Hurrying back to the I\)ur Corners he took a Lake 
Avenue car, which, unfortunately, only went as 
far as the Cemetery, so "Bob" had to get off and 
wait for a Charlotte car, which he took as far 
as Elizabeth Street. Hurrying down toward the 
dock he was accosted by a person who inquired 
why he was running. When he told him that he 
wantcil to catch the boat he was informed that it 
was just whistling for the bridge. Sorry. "Bob" I

SATURDAY, October 2nd, saw the 
successful and triumphant culmina- 
tion of two years of earnest baseball 
endeavor, when the Hawk-Eye team, 
already winners of the pennant in the 
Eastman Kodak Baseball League, handed 
their second straight beating to the Art 
in Buttons team, representing the I. A. 
R. A. 

September 25th, Hawk-Eye...9 Art in Buttons. .5 
October !2nd, Hawk-Eye. ..3 Art in Buttons. . 1 

Brennan's men, after cleaning up thir- 
teen of six'teen games in the Kodak circuit 
for the record percentage of .812, engaged 
the Art in Buttons nine, winners of the 
Blue Ribbon Series of the Industrial 
Athletic and Recreation Association, for 
a three-game series for the city industrial 
title, the same mythical honor lost last 
year in two straight games by Camera 
Works to the North-East Electrics. 

The first game on September 25th, was 
more or less of a gift from the button- 
makers, who offset Graham's neat pitch- 
ing by contributing nine defensive mis- 
plays. Against such porous opposition, 
Hawk-Eye quickly ran up a seven-run 
lead, while Marcelle gave the Industrial 
team but two tallies until the final session. 
In the ninth, they pushed over three 
tallies on four hits and two walks. Ten 
hits were garnered off "Duber" altogether. 
For Hawk-Eye, Ingleby and Van Lare 
led in the slugging. Ritter Field was 
packed for this contest, the crowed of a 
thousand fans filling the stands, and 
crowding the base lines. 

Game No. 2 was much tighter, but the 
Hawk-Ej^e boys breezed through ahead 
after a hard struggle. The day was raw, 
typical football weather, and a sparse 300 
crowd watched the battle. Manager 
Brennan sprang a surprise, starting his 
reserve hurler, "Norm" Graham. Graham 
pitched a pretty game of ball, with heady 
assistance from Peterson. Art in Buttons 
garnered four singles and three doubles off 

his slants, but in only one session were 
they able to get more than one safety. 
The Hawk-Eye team gave their hurler 
beautiful support. 


The final games of the All-Kodak sea- 
son were played at Kodak Park, one with 
the Moose and the other with the South 
Side Athletics. The Sunday that brought 
Jim Conover's All-Star Big Moose team 
to Kodak Park was shivering cold, but it 
was none too frigid for the Kodak boys. 
Diehl, on the mound for Irwin's proteges, 
struck out twelve of the heaw-hitting 
Moose nine and let them down with 
three scratch bingles and the short end 
of a 9 to score. If the steady support 
that the team put up had been given all 
during the season, the All-Kodaks would 
probably liave had a try at the city cham- 
pionship title.

Then along came another Jim's team — 
Sprague's Athletics from the sunny south 
end of Rochester. And they brought the 
most difficult puzzle for the Kodak nine 
when Jake Young appeared on the field to 
perform his usual feat of ten strikeouts. 
Diehl was no conundrum to the sturdy 
Athletic team and twelve safe blows were 

the result.

little later, perhaps we'll hear what the 
team has in mind for next year. 

Speak up. Dutch! 




THE first officers of the Kodak Ath- 
letic Association, Toronto, little an- 
ticipated that the members would be as 
busy and participate in as many lines of 
sport as they have during the past few 

There have been twelve representative 
teams playing during the season. The 
factory noon-hour Indoor Baseball 
League, which was started early in the 
spring with seven teams competing, has 
just closed a very successful and interest- 
ing season, with the Engineering and 
Maintenance team retaining the shield 
they won last year. 

The footballers, who have been play- 
ing in the Canadian Industrial Athletic 
Association, Saturday afternoon section, 
were just nosed out of first place by the 
Harris Abattoir with 24 points against 23 
for Kodak. The team had a little hard 
luck in losing Captain George Wright, 
who carried them through many winning 
games before he left the company. 

The baseball team, also playing in the 
Industrial League, won out in their sec- 
tion, but, unfortunately, went down to 
defeat in the semi-final against the 
Canadian Northern Railway. Mention 
should be made here of the great team 
spirit that existed, and also of the splendid 
pitching of Archie Boucher, who certainly 
twirled the old pill in good form all sum- 
mer. Archie hails from Rochester, but 
says that he has enjoyed playing baseball 
with the Canadian team. 

The factory noon-hour Indoor Baseball 
League mientioned above, has been the 
nucleus of a strong representative team 

playing in an Industrial League organ- 
ized by the Y. M. C. A. There were five 
sections in a Western Division, with seven 
teams in each section, and the "Kodak 
9" not only won their section, but, in the 
semi-final and final games, proved them- 
selves Champions of the Division. On 
Saturday, September 2oth, Kodak met 
Gourlay, Winter & Leeming, winners 
in the Eastern Division, on their home 
grounds, and, by a score of 11 to 8, won 
the first game of a series to decide the 
Industrial Championship honors of the 
city. As this article goes to press, they 
are working hard for their next game and 
feel confident of winning. 

This year has also seen an unparalleled 
interest in Indoor Baseball for Ladies, 
and the girls have been playing in an In- 
dustrial League conducted by the Y. W. 
C. A. So far they have not lost a game, 
and, with only one more to play, we 
expect them to keep the record clean. 
From the brand of ball the girls are play- 
ing, it looks as if they might give some of 
the men's teams an argument. However, 
this remains to be seen. 

Thursday, July 15th, was a memorable 
day in the history of the Association, when 
800 people journeyed to Queenston 
Heights for the second annual picnic. 
Old Sol was on the job all day, and the 
trip on the boat, games, and many walks 
through that historic spot, all aided in the 
enjoyment of the picnicers. The Athletic 
Association was pleased to have as its 
guest, Mr. Charles H. Thompson, General 
Safety Supervisor, Eastman Kodak Com- 
pany, Rochester, who assisted ]Mr. S. B. 

fl ' . '-^'^ 



Cornell, in giving ont the prizes at the 
athletic events. 

Last, but not least, are the accompany- 
ing snapshots taken at the Second Annual 
Field Day of the Association, which was a 
marked success. Over fifteen hundred 
people journeyed to Kodak Athletic Field 
and took great interest in the events of 
the day. This year there were added to 
the closed events for factory employees 
some seven open events for registered 
athletes of the citv. An exhibition of 

javelin throwing was given by Mr. Alex 
Stewart, record-holder for Canada. The 
Queen's Own Band, under the leadership 
of C. Hubbard, provided the music. A 
Baby Show, with over forty-five entries, 
and a Ladies' Indoor Baseball game be- 
tween Kodak and Canada Cloak followed 
the athletic events in the afternoon. From 
8.00 to 1L30, outdoor dancing was en- 
joyed by a large crowd. The Association 
again had excellent weather for its Field 




SEASON No. ^20, 
for the Camera 
Bowling League, was 
booked to get under 
way on Saturday, 
October 16th, on the 
Genesee Hall alleys. 
All six plants of the 
company are as usual 
in the race, and ex- 
ceptional interest is 
being shown. There 
is a determined effort 
being made around 
the circuit to oust 
Kodak Park and 
Camera Works from 
the undisputed su- 
premacy which, be- 
tween them, they 
have held for the last 
ten years. Back in 
the winter of 1909- 
1 , Folmer-Century 
grabbed off the 
trophy, but then the 
Parkers started, and 
held the flag for six 
straight years. Cam- 
era Works then leapt 
into the procession 
and took it for the 
next three seasons. 
Last year, Kodak 
Park came into its 

JOHN S. STANTON, Secretanj and 
Treasurer of the Camera Bowling League, 
has been associated with the League since 
its organization in 1903. He was secretary 
under President A. A. Ruttan in 1908 and 
again elected to the office he noio holds in 
1914. He has been elected each year since 
by the delegates from the various plants to 
the combined office of Secretary and Treas- 
urer. The Camera Bowling League is the 
oldest organization of its kind in Rochester, 
and is also one of the best, due very largely 
to the efforts of Mr. Stanton and other 
officers for manly and good clean sport. 
Mr. Stanton has been continuously em- 
ployed at the Premo Works from 1901 to 
the present date.

Since the organization of the League, 
the trophy has been held eight years by 
Kodak Park, five by Camera Works, 
three by Premo, and two by Folmer-

THE KODAK ON ITS FIRST TRIP ABROAD (1889)— Courtesy Dr. Wilfred A. French 


Vol. I 



No. 7 



Chapter III 

THE roll film idea naturally evolved 
a new type of camera, and the Kodak 
was the result. 

The first Kodak appeared in 1888. 
It was the invention of Mr. George 
Eastman, and the name "Kodak" was 
coined by him for a trade mark. 

It was a simple box camera combining 
the roll holder and 
plate camera in a 
new, compact, sim- 
ple, portable and 
easily manipulated 
form. It included an 
instantaneous shut- 
ter which could be 
wound up for a num- 
ber of exposures by 
simply pulling a 

The roller mech- 
anism comprised exposure indicating, 
film perforating and film tensioning 
device, and was carried in a readily 
removable part of the case for loading 
and unloading. 

This first Kodak took round pictures 
2^ inches in diameter, and was loaded 
for 100 exposures. Compared to the 
folding pocket editions of today, it was a 
rather crude and clumsy affair, but 
compared to the burden of equipment, 
which only a few years before had con- 
fronted the amateur, it was a miracle of 
achievement. The wagon load of para- 
phernalia had been condensed into a 
complete photographic outfit which the 
amateur could tuck under his arm, 
and with it, go on a picture making 
tour of the world, as the accompanying 


illustrations show. For the picture tak 
ing itself no technical skill whatever was 
required. "You press the button, we 
do the rest," put the simplicity of opera- 
tion into a phrase. 

The "rest," however, was still 
considerable, and included unloading 
the Kodak and developing the roll of 
film. The film of 
these early Kodak 
days, too, was the 
paper "stripping" 
film previously de- 
scribed, and which, 
as already noted, 
had to be handled 
by experts. 

And so while the 
amateur went forth 
on his picture mak- 
ing expeditions re- 
of his burden that 
become a pleasure 
the inventor 

lieved of so much 
photography had 
instead of a drudgery, 
continued his search to find a satisfactory 
substitute for paper film. Both the 
"stripping" film and the film with 
permanent paper support which pre- 
ceded it, pointed to the necessity for a 
transparent flexible film base to which the 
image would remain affixed after develop- 
ing, and through which prints could suc- 
cessfully be made. This was the ideal, but 
like most ideals it had long eluded capture. 
Finally, in 1889, after years of experiment 
and research, Mr. Eastman succeeded in 
making commercially practicable the 
present cellulose base. With this dis- 
covery the long search was over, the 
ideal realized, the dream come true. 


It was found that by dissolving cotton 
previously nitrated in a solution of 
denatured alcohol, a viscous honey-like 
fluid was obtained. This, when con- 
verted into sheets and dried, became the 
thin, flexible, transparent film base with 
which every Kodaker has long been 
familiar. This important film discovery 
not only revolutionized photography for 
the Kodak amateur, but made motion 
'pictures possible. 

From this point on, the evolution of the 
Kodak and the Kodak system of photog- 
raphy proceeded rapidly and logically. 

Daylight loading, the next important 
step, was realized in 1891. In the 
system first devised the spool of film was 
contained in a light-proof box with a 
strip of black cloth attached to each 
end. Another light-tight box contained 
the "take up" spool on which the film 
was wound after exposure. The cloth 
at the ends protected the film during 
loading and unloading. This device did 
away with the dark room, or in the 
absence of this, with the necessity for 
sending the Kodak to the factory for 
reloading. All that was necessary was 
to send the film there for development. 

The cartridge system, practically as 
we now know it, followed a few years 
later. With the cartridge system were 
made possible further refinements of the 
Kodak, until the dainty, compact, folding 
models of today were realized. 

Folding Kodaks appeared as early as 
1890, but the first Folding Pocket Kodak 
appeared in 1898. 
^ Daylight developing was introduced 
in 1902 and completed the Kodak system 
of photography. The first developing 
machine was a light-tight box made in 
two compartments. On one side was the 
spool of film, on the other the protecting 
apron. The film was rewound from the 
spool into the protecting apron and both 
rotated continuously in the developing 
solution. This method was later super- 
seded by the present tank system in which 
the film, in its protecting apron, is 

suspended in the developer. 

With daylight developing the amateur 
was now forever independent of dark 
rooms and professional help. With the 
Autographic feature added in 1914, the 
final touch of convenience to the Kodak 
system would seem to have been given, 

Kodak inventions have consequently 
placed the means of photography within 
reach of every man, woman and child on 
earth. Instead of the exclusive hobby 
of a few devotees, which Mr. Eastman 
found it forty odd years ago, it has, 
chiefly through his efforts, become the 
pastime of all, with fields of activity 
stretching to every horizon. This, on 
the play side. 

On the side of utility the simplification 
of photography has enabled it to enter 
intimately into the thousand and one 
concerns of business, social, professional, 
agricultural, and even scientific life. 

A chapter might be devoted to the 
commercial uses of photography alone, 
another to the scientific — including X-ray, 
micro-photography and telephotography 
— and still another to aerial photography, 
developed during the war to the point 
where daylight loading cartridge film 
could be used instead of plates and 
exposures made automatically. 

These are remote from amateur pur- 
suits, many of them. But the adaptation 
to professional uses of many of the 
methods by which photography has been 
simplified for the amateur has extended 
its scope far beyond the confines of the 
portrait studio. The same research work 
that has relieved the amateur of his 
burdens, has been at the service of the 
professional and WTOught refinements of 
material and equipment for him that 
have heightened his art, freed him from 
fixed conditions of light and background, 
and left him at liberty to ply his trade 
in any chosen field. 

But the great service to mankind is 
the extension of photography to the 
amateur through Kodak inventions. 

{To be Continued) 


THERE is solid satisfaction in having 
monej" you have earned and saved 
working for you. When the "only girl" 
has said "Yes," it is a "grand and glorious 
feeling" to know that you have ready the 
means to provide the home in which to 
install her. And in the sunset years the 
fact that your home is all yours affords a 
feeling of security that nothing can 

In the last few years most of us have 
learned the importance of having money 
in reserve; we have learned the folly of 
extravagant spending, and we have 
learned how easy it is to save money 
through our patriotic investments in 
Liberty Bonds. And we have also 

learned that the money we have saved 
is lazy money if only hoarded and not 
put to work. 


The fact that we, you and I and the 
rest of us, are a part of a very large 
organization, makes it possible to do 
many things within our organization, 
and to have the benefit of trained minds 
to insure the success of our plans. 

So to help us to save and to enjoy in the 
fullest measure the benefit of our savings, 
there has been organized the Eastman 
Savings and Loan Association, incor- 
porated under the laws of the State of 
New York, and to be conducted in strict 
accordance with the banking laws of the 

Only employees of the company and 
members of their families are eligible as 
shareholders, and it Avill be officered and 
conducted by capable employees of the 


Three plans of investment are ofiPered 
the shareholders; the par value per share 
being $100.00. 

1. Installment Shares 

Employees, or members of their families, 
may subscribe for as many shares as they 

desire, and payments of $1.00 per month 
are required to be made on each share. 

When the payments, called dues, and 
dividends (which are credited quarterly) 
equal the par value, $100.00, the amount 
will be paid in cash to the shareholder. 
It is expected that these shares will 
mature in about seven years. 

Subscribers to these shares may, at 
any time before the shares mature, borrow 
from the Association on their personal 
note up to an amount reasonably secured 
by the amount paid on such shares and 
the dividends credited thereto. By con- 
tinuing the regular monthly payments 
(dues) on such shares and making pay- 
ments on the sum borrowed as may be 
agreed upon, the value and earnings of 
the shares are thus unimpaired and may 
be continued to maturity. 

Shareholders may withdraw at any 
time, but should they do so before 
the shares mature, twenty per cent 
(one-fifth) of the dividends apportioned 
to the shares withdrawn are forfeited 
and such forfeited amounts revert to 
the Association. 

2. Savings Shares 

Employees, or members of their families, 
may subscribe for any number of these 
shares, par value $100.00, and can pay 
any amount from time to time as they 
desire. The holders of savings shares 
have the privilege of drawing against the 
amount they have paid in at any time, 
the same as with any regular savings 
bank account, and dividends on balances 
at an annual rate of 4% will be credited 
quarterly. This rate is less than that 
paid on the Installment Shares, but it is 
eminently fair because with the Install- 
ment Shares, the Association knows 
approximately the amount it has coming 
in from that source, and is free to loan 
such funds to borrowing shareholders, 
and thus produce earnings for dividends. 

3. Income Shares 

Income Shares require the full payment, 



$100.00 per share, at the time of pur- 
chase. These shares are intended as an 
investment for such employees as have 
a bit of money laid by, where it can 
be assured of a good return coupled with 
absolute safety. 

Dividends on these shares are credited 
quarterly and a portion (four per cent 
per annum) paid to the holder quarterly 
by check. The balance of the dividends 
credited will be held until maturity of 
the shares (five years) , when the principal 
and accrued unpaid dividends are paid 
to the shareholder in full. 

Holders of these shares may cash 
them in at any time before they mature, 
but by so doing all dividends credited 
thereto over and above the four per cent 
per annum which has been paid to the 
shareholder quarterly, are forfeited and 
such forfeited amounts revert to the 

Above you have had outlined three 
safe ways for saving and for the safe 
investment of your money. 

If the purchase of a home as soon as 
possible, or the systematic saving of a 
definite weekly or monthly amount is 
desired, subscribe for the Installment 

If you just want to save what you can, 
and at times most convenient, and 
where you can draw against your savings 
when necessary, subscribe for the Savings 

If you have a bit of money tucked 
away in the old teapot, or lying idle in 
the bank, or a wage dividend check of 
generous amount, and you want an 
absolutely sound and paying investment, 
with dividends paid to you quarterly, 
subscribe for the Income Shares. 


Employees of any of the company's 
branches throughout the United States 
and Canada, or any members of their 
families, may subscribe for shares in this 
Association, and such shareholders will 
receive all benefits and privileges, except- 
ing that they cannot borrow on mortgage 

loans, as it is illegal for the Association 
to loan its funds upon mortgages covering 
property outside of a 50-mile radius 
from its home oSice. (Payments from 
Canada to be in New York exchange.) 


When you have ten to fifteen per cent 
of the fair appraised value of the property 
you desire to purchase, to your credit 
on the books of the Association, or 
available from some other source, and 
are in position to make regular payments 
of one per cent per month on the amount 
you wish to borrow — (Example: $1,000, 
$10.00 per month; $2,000, $20.00 per 
month, etc., which is total payment on 
principal and interest) — the Association 
will lend you the money up to seventy 
per cent, of the appraised value, taking 
a mortgage in the usual form. 

The Kodak Employees Association, 
which handles a fund in which all Kodak 
employees have an interest, is naturally 
on the lookout for safe investments, and 
will, when necessary, and after the 
security has been approved by its direc- 
tors, loan you the difference between 
your ten to fifteen per cent and the 
amount loaned by the Eastman Savings 
and Loan Association, taking a second 
mortgage therefor. So you see that all 
you need in order to commence owning 
your own home is ten to fifteen per cent 
of its purchase price, an unusual and 
highly satisfactory situation, in view 
of the unsettled conditions during the 
past three years. 


It is unnecessary to assure you that 
the affairs and management of the 
Association will be placed in the hands of 
skilled and competent officials. It will 
have at all times the full benefit and 
assistance of our Legal Department, and 
it will have the hearty good will of our 
company behind it. 

To many of us the legal formalities 
necessary to the purchase of real estate 
are intricate and hard to understand, 
and we are not familiar with the care 


necessary to make sure that we will 
hold a clear and unclouded equity in the 
property we purchase. Neither are we 
always sure that the purchase price of 
the property we desire to own is a fair 
one. On every one of these points you 
will be fully safeguarded and protected 
by the Association. For its own protec- 
tion, it will not make the loan unless the 
title to the property is found to be 
unclouded upon examination by the 
Legal Department, and the price is a 
fair one, as determined by expert and 
disinterested appraisers. 


To participate in any one of the forms 
of investment offered by the Association, 
all you have to do is to fill out the proper 
forms which will be supplied yovi on 
application to the head of your 

If you subscribe for the Installment 
Shares, all you have to do is to instruct 
the company to deduct from your wage 
the amount necessary to keep up the 
payments each week. If the Savings 
Shares appeal to you the most, hand the 
Cashier of your plant the amount you 
wish credited, and it will be done. With 
the Income Shares simply deposit the 
necessary amount for the purchase with 
your Cashier, or at the office of the 
Association, 343 State Street, and that 
is all there is to it. 

There can be no finer plan evolved for 
helping us to help ourselves; the Asso- 
ciation is ours, and its profits are ours, 
and it is going to be the biggest kind of a 

The Eastman Savings and Loan Asso- 
ciation will be ready for business on 
January 3, 1921, with headquarters at 
the :\Iain Office, 343 State Street. 
Advance subscriptions will however be 
received. Ask your department head. 
Further particulars and literature for 
distribution will be furnished on request. 


The company is most heartily in 
accord with the aims of the Association, 

and in the event of its acceptance — 
and we certainly will accept — plans 
to do many things towards the further- 
ance of home owning by us. This 
includes a wide variety of complete 
architects' plans, available to our home 
builders; the opening up of tracts of 
land in good locations for our homes, 
and the building of homes in quantity 
groups where by quantity purchasing 
of materials a great saving can be 

Does the plan sound good to you? 
It does. 


A few weeks ago, one of our Kodak 
Park workers hired a plumber to do some 
work for him. The job lasted several 
weeks. When it was nearly done, our 
friend rustled around and got together the 
money to pay for the work — about $150. 
And, then, one day, somewhere around 
the plant — perhaps while he was buying 
his lunch, or perhaps around his machine, 
he lost his roll. Every effort to find the 
lost money has been in vain. 

Mighty hard luck, wasn't it? But, this 
man's unfortunate experience carries a 
lesson for all of us. It is not only un- 
necessary, but foolish to carry around 
large sums of money on your person for 
several days at a time. If you have a 
large bill to meet, and have no checking 
account of your own, go to some friend 
around the plant who has. and exchange 
your money for his check. If that can- 
not be done, you can alwavs buv a bank 

The old rule: "Don't Be a Chance- 
taker!" can apply just as aptly to your 
handling of money, as to your work in 
the plant, or around your machine. 

Dad Hicks says — 

"Them suspicious folks that are always 
expectin' something to happen to *em 
sure do wish a lot of trouble on to them- 

"They remind me of Sam Jones — Sam 
wears a belt and suspenders at the same 
time." — The Starter.

On page 5 of this issue appears the 
biggest story that it has been my privilege 
to write in a good many years. 

It is the story of a sound and safe plan 
to help you, and me, and every one of us 
to acquire a protection for our later 
years, and to establish ourselves on a 
sound basis of thrift. 

There are but few of us who have not, 
and who do not, spend a certain amount 
of money foolishly; money that we have 
often regretted having let slip through 
our fingers so easily, when confronted by 
some severe and unexpected emergency. 

In telling you of this, I w'ant to get 
away from the editorial "we" because I 
have always been a sort of a "happy-go- 
lucky" chap and have tossed away many 
a foolish dollar. 

I want you young fellows, you boys 
and girls, in this big family of ours, to 
wake up a bit sooner than I did, and 
acquire the saving habit. 

I do not want for a moment to suggest 
that you become miserly; that you cut 
out all the little pleasures and enjoyments 
to which you are justly entitled; "All 
work and no play makes Jack a dull 
boy" — but I do want you to read and 

study this plan for our mutual benefit- 
carefully and thoughtfully; to ask 
yourself, is there a better time to start 
putting a bit by for showery weather 
than right noiv. To those of you who 
have found the incentive to save, whether 
for that long longed-for home of your 
own, or for any other reason, I recom- 
mend the plan in fullest measure. 

I only wish that such a plan had been 
offered me — yes, forced on me, twenty 
years ago. Ever since I have known of 
the plan, I have thought of it constantly 
— yes, dreamed about it. I wish that I 
were a master painter with words so 
that I could fill you full of my own 
enthusiasm for this splendid plan. I am 
going in to the limit I can carry, and I 
want every one of you along with me. 

The Eastman Savings and Loan Asso- 
ciation is our association; let us make it 
as big a success as the company itself. 

Most of the time I am a bit "hard 
boiled," and not much inclined to senti- 
ment because I have lived c{uite a while 
and have experienced many bumps. 

But just now, w^ith Christmas right 
around the corner, that old and beautiful 
thought — "Peace on earth, goodwill 
tow^ards men" — subconsciously comes to 
the fore. And it is a beautiful thought — 
"goodwill towards men." Just get that 
thought into your heart — forget your 
certain small and large dislikes. 

Get the real spirit of Christmas into 
you; make as many people as happy as 
you can. 

Oftentimes just a smile and a firm 
hand clasp w ill be valued far beyond any 
material gift. I remember a good many 
years ago, a young man with whom I 
had been very chummy suddenly quit 
speaking to me, and I hadn't the remotest 
idea as to the reason; it hurt. 

A year later he came to my house on 
Christmas day and said, "I was wrong, 
please forgive me" — and that was just 
the best Christmas gift I ever had. 

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, 
Spencer Hord. 



SEVERAL months ago an article 
appeared in Kodak Magazine sum- 
marizing the changes brought into the 
law governing the relationship of landlord 
and tenant by the new State statutes, 
which went into effect April 1, 1920. 

At a special session of the State 
Legislature, held in September, several 
additional bills were passed which became 
laws on September 27th, and which to 
some extent again changed the law of 
landlord and tenant. There is, however, 
only one important change which affects 
the City of Rochester. That change 
may be described as follows: Under 
one of the laws of April 1st, a landlord 
could not evict a tenant on the ground 
of failure to pay the rent unless he, the 
landlord, could show one of two things — 
either that the rent had not been raised 
more than twenty-five per cent in excess 
of the rent one year previous to the time 
the eviction proceeding was instituted, 
or that the rent had not been increased 
at all over the amount actually paid for 
the preceding month. Now that law 
has been made even more stringent by 
making the landlord show, in order to 
put a tenant out for failure to pay the 
rent, that the rent has not been raised 
at all in excess of the amount for which 
the tenant was liable for the month 
preceding the time of the alleged failure 
to pay rent. This means that if your 
landlord attempts to raise your rent, 
if you do not wish to pay the increase, 
the landlord cannot avail himself of the 
short three-day notice in order to make 
you "pay up or get out." It should, 
however, be borne in mind that both 
under the law of April 1 and under the 
present law, a landlord may, for any 
reason or for no reason at all, after he 
has given the proper notice (which is a 
month in the case of a tenancy by the 
month, and is a week in the case of a 
tenancy by the week), commence a 
proceeding in the City Court to oust a 
tenant. Then the onlv aid the tenant 

has to rely upon is the "stay" or post- 
ponement which the judge has it within 
his discretion to grant in order to give 
the tenant time in which to find another 
suitable abode. 

The net result of the rent raising 
problem from the tenant's point of view 
today, is as follows : If you receive notice 
that on a certain date your rent will be 
increased, you should consider whether 
that increase is reasonable. You ought 
also to consider whether or not you can 
get any other place of a similar nature at 
a price less than the increased rent 
asked. If you feel that the increased 
rent is reasonable, and that you cannot 
get any ot^er suitable place in the city 
for less, then the wise thing to do is to 
pay the rent asked. If, on the other 
hand, you feel that the amount is unreas- 
onable and that you would rather get 
out than pay it, then you should at once 
notify the landlord in WTiting that you 
absolutely refuse to pay the increase, 
and that you will move out of the house 
just as soon as you can find another 
suitable house, and that meanwhile you 
will go on paying the present amount of 
rent. If he then insists on serving you 
with notice to vacate, and commencing 
legal proceedings to oust you, you can 
probably get a "stay" from the judge 
which will allow you to remain in the 
premises for a reasonable time — probably 
for a month or so until you can find 
another place. 

Quite a number of the employees are 
under the impression that the law makes 
it impossible for a landlord to put any 
tenant out in less than a year. That 
idea is entirely erroneous. It is probably 
based upon the provision that the judge 
may not grant the "stays" described 
above for a period longer than a year. 
This of course is a very different thing. 

If an employee has a case involving 
any of these matters, his best course is 
to consult the Legal Department as 
quickly as possible.

From both the quahty and the quantity 
standpoint, our first Quarterly Print 
Competition was a decided success, but 
we have every reason to beheve that the 
next one will surpass it. 

With so many of you enthusiastic 
amateurs, and now that you have had 
time to sort over and print up your 
summer pictures, we should be just 
flooded with entries — and there is already 
a good start in that direction. 

You may submit prints of any size, 
or enlargements, but please do not send 
the negatives with the prints, nor submit 
hand-colored pictures, or those toned 
in blue or red, because such pictures are 
practically impossible to reproduce. 

Be sure and write your name and the 
plant where you are employed, plainly 
on the back of each print, together with 
the name of the camera with which the 
picture was made. 

The subjects for the present com- 
petition are: 

Home Portraiture 
Architecture and Interiors 
Flashlight Pictures 

The awards are the same as for the first 
competition, and the terms were given 
in full in the October issue of the Kodak 
Magazine. On page 10 we reproduce the 
pictures receiving Honoral^le Mention 
in the first competition. Entries for the 
present competition close December 31st. 


The regular meeting of the Board of 
Directors of this Association was held at 
the Main Office Building on November 

The Directors, Messrs. Eastman, Haste, 
Reid, Robertson, Rogers, Ruttan, Sher- 
man, Higgins, Ever, Folnier, Dorsey, 
Havens and Irwin, being all the inembors 
of the Board, were present. 

Mr. Eastman presided and Mr. II. D. 
Haight, Manager of Industrial Relations, 
and Mr. P. W. Turner, Assistant Treas- 
urer of the Association, were also present. 

The Secretary reported that since the 
last meeting of the Board, eight mortgage 
loans to employees, aggregating $4,820.00, 
had been clo.sed and that the total 
mortgage loans made to employees prior 
to the date of the meeting aggregate 
thirty-two in number, and $'21,985.00 in 

Mr. Haight reported that all employees 
absent on account of illness were notified 
at least two weeks before the payments of 
allowances for sickness under the schedules 
adopted by the company expire, and such 
employees were at that time informed that 
if further assistance was needed in their 
cases, loans could be arranged from the 
Association. This is done so that there 
may be no period after the payments by 
the company cease and before loans by 
the Association begin, during which period 
the sick employee might suffer distress 
for lack of funds. 

The Treasurer's report was received 
and filed, showing the Association's in- 
come and investments to be most 

The Association approved the action of 
the Executive Committee taken at its 
meetings since the last meeting of the 
Board of Directors. 


Courtesy is too often forgotten in 
business. There are too many of us who 
are prone to adopt an attitude of indif- 
ference; to dismiss the matter of courtesy 
as trivial. That attitude and idea is 
wrong, entirely wrong. Courtesy is an 
acquirement of cultivation and an asset 
almost priceless to possess. Everyone is 
entitled to courteous consideration and 
should never fail to extend it. Its elTect 
will be most marked; its encouraging 
inspiration and heartfelt assurance will 
go far — so remember to be courteous. 

Courtesy is like the air on the inside 
of a tire. There nuiy be nothing to it, 
but still it eases many a jolt and saves 
many a rupture. 




SADNESS, timidity and anxiety were 
written on the face of the young 
woman who called at the Community 
Chest headquarters not so very long ago. 
She was plainly but neatly dressed, 
probably between 26 and 30 years of age, 
in appearance attractive and wholesome, 
and without question a foreigner. Her 
nationality easily was established when 
she spoke. 

Seeking painfully hard to keep back 
the tears that welled up in her eyes, and 
to affect a composure she did not feel, 
she said: 

"I die, unless I go to hospital, doctor 
he say." 

Then in broken English, almost un- 
intelligible, but spoken with earnestness, 
sincerity, she told her story and made her 
appeal : 

She lived on Street ; her husband 

worked for — — — and earned a 

week. For months she had been re- 
ceiving medical treatment for a growth, 
the doctor at first holding out the hope 
that the medicine he was giving would 
check its development. Recently, how- 
ever, the trouble had become worse, and 
the doctor that day had advised her that 
she would have to submit to an operation 
at once; delay would be dangerous. 
What was she to do? Her husband did 
not earn enough to pay even ward rates 
in the hospital, and they had not been 
able to save anything for a rainy day. 
The doctor had told her she would have 
to stay in the hospital four, perhaps six 
weeks, and during that time her husband 
would have to take care of the children, 
keep the house going, pay the rent; and 
the most they could pay the hospital 
would be eight dollars a week. Was there 
any hospital that would take care of her 
for eight dollars a week? Would the 
Community Chest tell her what she had 
to do to get into a hospital? She and her 
husband didn't speak nor understand 
English very well. Wouldn't the Com- 
munity Chest help her get into a hospital? 

The young woman was assured that 

any one of the four public hospitals would 
care for her if her condition called for 
hospital treatment, provided all beds 
were not filled, and it would only be 
necessary for her to make application, 
relate the circumstances and submit to 
examination to determine the nature of 
her trouble and treatment necessary. 
She was given instructions as to where to 
go and to whom to apply, and the hospital 
was notified by telephone that she would 

The young woman went from the Com- 
munity Chest to the hospital, and, it being 
found upon examination and investiga- 
tion that she needed the operation and 
had given a true account of her circum- 
stances, arrangements were made to take 
care of her at the price she and her 
husband considered they were able to pay. 
A few hours later, very much relieved, the 
young woman called at the Community 
Chest and reported: 

"Every ting all right. Hospital take 
me, eight dollars week." 

The morning of the day the young- 
woman was to go to the hospital she 
called at the Community Chest with her 
four-months-old baby, and made the 
astonishing announcement : 

'T bring baby for you to keep. Go to 
hospital afternoon. You keep baby while 
I there." 

The young mother was told to go home 
with her baby and assurance was given 
her that provision would be made for 
the care of the infant. 

After she had departed, the case was 
reported to one of the philanthropies in 
the Community Chest budget, and the 
same afternoon Mister Baby was safely 
in the keeping of nurses at the Industrial 
School on Exchange Street. The In- 
dustrial School recently has established a 
night nursery in connection with its day 
nursery work, enabling it to care for 
children of sick mothers as well as the 
children of working mothers. 

Despite the fact that the Community 
Chest does not distribute direct relief. 



which is the work of the various philan- 
thropies for which it raises money, scores 
of people bring their troubles direct to 
Chest headquarters. Since the close of 
the 1920 campaign, more than 100 such 
appeals, of which that of the young 
woman is typical, have been made. In 
all these cases the applicants were re- 

ferred to the philanthropy best suited to 
help them, and the philanthropy made a 
report of its action to the Community 
Chest. Without exception, where it was 
shown that relief was necessary, it was 
given promptly. The exceptions were 
cases that did not justify assistance. 


THOSE of us who have had an en- 
counter with that arch-villain "Flu," 
don't care for another visit. He is a 
decidedly disagreeable and dangerous 
visitor and we want to do all we possibly 
can to have him pass us by this winter. 

At this writing, there is no seeming 
tendency tow^ards another Spanish Influ- 
enza epidemic, but still there is no telling 
and we can well afford to observe every 
possible precaution. 

It is positively known that influenza 
is contagious, which means that it is 
spread by the transfer of germs directly 
from one person to another, or indirectly 
by articles recently used by persons sick 
with the disease. 

The particular germ responsible for 
the trouble has not yet been found, nor is 
there any specific cure. Much can be 
done to prevent the spread of grip, how- 
ever, and also to insure the recovery of 
those who are taken sick. 

The great danger of influenza lies in 
the pneumonia which often follows an 
attack as a complication. Much of this 
danger may be avoided if you recognize 
the trouble early, go to bed at once and 
call a physician. 

All cases are not alike, but an attack 
of Spanish Influenza usually begins with 

1. Headache. 

2. Sneezing, coughing or cold in the 

.3. General tired feeling. 

4. Aching muscles. 

5. Chills. 

If you have one or all of the above 
symptoms go at once to tlie Medical 
Department and find out if you have 

fever or rapid pulse. The nurse or doctor 
will decide whether you ought to go home 
or remain at work. 


^4. If you are well: 

1. Avoid crowds. This means theatres, 
schools, churches and street cars. The De- 
partment of Public Safety orders all such 
places closed until the epidemic is under con- 
trol. Keep at least six feet away from the 
cougher or sneezer, and better still avoid him 

2. It is of the greatest importance to keep 
yourself in good physical condition. To ac- 
complish this, 

a. Get eight hours sleep every night. 

b. Get as much fresh air as you can by walk- 
ing to and from work whenever possible, and 
by sleeping with windows thrown wide open. 

c. Eat plenty of good, nutritious food. 

d. Brush teeth morning and night. 

e. Use salt water (teaspoonf ul of salt to the 
pint of water) as a gargle in tliroat and as a 
douche in the nose four or five times daily. 

/. Don't use any drinking cup, roller towel 
or handkerchief used b\- another person. 

B. If you are sick: 

1. Remain in one room and don't permit 
anyone but nurse or physician to come near 

'2. Cover your face with a handkerchief when 
you cough or sneeze. 

3. See that your dishes and utensils are boiled 
for ten minutes after using. 

Laff every time you feel tickled, and 
laff once in a while ennyhow. — Josh 
Billing fi. 






WHEN it comes to fixing things up 
right around the house, it takes a 
woman. If you don't believe it, ask any 
married man who has tried to keep house 
when his wife was away. 

Some time ago it was decided that the 
"wimmen folks" in the Main Office 
ought to have a rest room and a lunch 
room, and space for the purpose was found. 

The necessary furnishings were pur- 
chased and installed, and the two rooms 
appeared as shown in the left hand 
illustrations on page 14; all perfectly 
practical and well suited to the purpose, 

but somehow lacking the "homey" touch. 
^Miat more could you expect of a bunch 
of mere men anyhow? 

So some of the girls got together and 
induced the powers that be to let them 
fix things up a bit. 

Real fluffy ruffle curtains for the win- 
dows, some flowers, a few pictures on the 
walls and a piece or two of bright cretonne 
cushioned furniture to liven things up. 

The lunch room really didn't need any 
more furniture, but how the window 
curtains and flower boxes do help out. 

Takes the women, don't it? 


IN all probability you have seen Dad or 
big brother build a chicken coop or 
construct something else equally fascinat- 
ing — but have you ever seen an advertis- 
ing man build an advertisement? 

When you look through one of the 
popular magazines and see all the different 
advertisements it contains, you might get 
the idea that because there are so many of 
them that they must be very easy to 

Because most of the Kodak advertise- 
ments are pictures and very little reading 
matter, you may think that our Adver- 
tising Department has an easy time of it. 

Here is a true story of one of our ad- 
vertisements: During the war most of 
our advertising energies were directed 
towards having the folks at home send 
Kodak pictures of home happenings to the 
boys in camps or overseas. 

Our Advertising Department has on its 
staff quite a number of advertisement 
writers, but frequently ^Nlr. Jones, the 
head of the department, likes to take a 
hand. Along came a photograph of an 
officer sitting in the door of his tent 
looking at a little Kodak picture, and 
Mr. Jones set himself down to write the 
"copy" necessary to go with it. He 
propped the picture up in front of him 
for inspection and inspiration and he 
wrote — and he wrote; at the end of four 

days he declared himself satisfied, and all 
there was to the advertisement was the 
picture and the words — "The Picture 
from Home," followed by the usual 
signature of the company. 

Horace Greeley once upon a time was 
asked bj^ a friend of his to write a short 
editorial or some topic of interest. At the 
time, H. G. replied that he didn't have 
time to write a short editorial. 

You see very few people will take the 
time to read a long advertisement, so the 
shorter and more to the point you make 
your advertising message, the greater your 
chances will be of having it read. Almost 
without exception, the shorter the mes- 
sage is in one of our advertisements, the 
longer the time it has taken to write. 

Sometimes, of course, but all too infre- 
quently for the peace of mind of the 
advertising statt", just the right words will 
roll from the pencil point in a flash, but 
usually the advertisement will be written 
and re- written and re-wTitten before it 
gets the final "O.K." 

In the fall of 1888 in the Scientific 
American appeared the first Kodak ad- 
vertisement; but a single column wide, 
and less than two and one-half inches in 
length and costing about seventy dollars; 
this was the commencement of the public- 
ity that has carried the name "Kodak" 
around the world.

It has been said of us by a European statesman, 
that America knows what she wants, and what she 
wants she gets. This saying was clearly exemphfied, 
not only by the national election of last month, but 
also by the enthusiasm manifested 
in the Camera AVorks during the 
Recreation Club nominations and 

It was deemed advisable, this 
first year of permanent organiza- 
tion, to "throw open" the nomina- 
tion ticket in order that each 
employee might express his choice 
of a candidate. The result was 
a wide and varied selection of 
people. As an idea of the magni- 
tude of the task of tabulating the 
votes, nominations for the office 
of President totaled forty-nine; 
for Vice-president, ninety-four; for 
the Board of Managers, three himdred and twenty, 
and for the Auditing Committee, four hundred 
and twenty-five. Truly we are a democratic crowd! 
The final analysis of the two thousand, one hundred 
and fifty-one votes resulted in the following 
organization : 

President Charles Rogers 

Vice-President Frank O'Brien 

Secretary and Treasurer Herbert S. Thorpe

At the time of %\Titing the first 
meeting of the Executive Com- 
mittee is being called to adopt 
a Constitution and By-laws, and 
also to ratify a budget for the 
coming season. 

All teams and organizations of 
any kind and all meetings and articles of equipment 
must be indorsed by the Secretary. In this way 
we can make a real pull-together club, where all 
acts are recorded in the club's books, and where 
every phase of amusement gets a just share of 
the proceeds from the members and the company. 


The installation of the new offices of the Indus- 
trial Relations Department has been completed

The Employment Section has waiting rooms for 
men and women, and private rooms for interviews 
regarding employment have been added. The 
Factory Fiction Library is established in the 
Information Room, and the period for the distribu- 
tion of the books is from 12:00 to 1:1.5. All em- 
ployees are welcome to take books from this branch 
of the Rochester Public Library. A reference 
library of the principal trade papers is kept on file 
for the benefit of superintendents and foremen, 
and a service is maintained to secure technical books 
from the Chamber of Commerce and the local 

The Kodak Magazine — Camera Works Section — 
is edited from this Department, and employees are 
invited to contribute articles for publication. A 

general Information Bureau is being established, 
where matters of employees' interest will be cared 
for as far as possible. 

A regular schedule has been arranged for consulta- 
tions with the staff of the Industrial Relations 
Department. Please note the following plan:

The office girls have formed what appears to be a 
real live Bowling League. Four teams are in the 
schedule, and Helen White has been elected Man- 
ager. The League has christened itself "The 
Ko-Da-Kams." Edith Waterstraat, Florence 
Waterstraat, Edna Joy and Gene Klink are Cap- 
tains. The teams play each Friday at the Genesee 
Hall, from 6:00 to 8:00 o'clock, on alleys No. 13, 
14, 15, 16. Here's a chance for you bowling fans 
to make a regular night of it, as the Men's Bowling 
League starts at 8:00 o'clock on each Friday. 

The tragic death of Alex. Englert on November 
14th caused a deep feeling of sjTnpathy throughout 
the Camera Works. His long ser\'ice with the 
company gained for him many friends. Alex, was 
a foreman in the Shutter Room during the pioneer 
days of Vest Pocket Shutters, and has been a special 
repair man since that time. Sincere condolence is 
extended to his family. 

Jack AValsh sufTered the loss of his baby last 
month. His many friends offer their sjTnpathy. 

The boys of the Foreign Shipping Department 
extend their sympathy to Edward Shearns on the 
death of his sister, who passed away at her home in 

Stella Sorg has left the Bellows Department to 

take a new job, that of housekeeping. Stella was 

married a short time ago, and the girls of the Bellows 

Department offer their congratulations. ,

In order to fill the vacancy of foreman in the 
Tin Shop, caused by F. Seiler being transferred to 
the Main Office, the management has appointed 
Ed. H. Frank. Everyone knows him. Ed. needs 
no introduction, ha\'ing worked in the Tin Shop 
since 1913. The Foremen's Group is glad to 
welcome him into their organization, and we wish 
him success in his new position. 

Our best wishes to Avis Whitbeck, of the Bellows 
Department, on the occasion of her marriage. 

The fast Baker Brownies — under the leadership 
of Rutan — have proved to be a winning factor in 
our baseball acti\'ities. With a retiring victory 
of eight to two, scored from a picked office team, 
there are great prospects of a first-class aggregation 
for next season. 

Irvin Briggs, Cost Department, is a mighty happy 
man these days, in spite of the fact that he now has 
an additional visitor at his house. Gentlemen, 
meet Betty J. Briggs; age, most one month. 

Nine girls from the Office entertained a number of 
their friends at a ma.squerade party in the Martin 
barn, on the West Henrietta Road. It was a 
regular Hallowe'en affair, and the party was con- 
veyed to and from the barn in a hay wagon. Plenty 
of dancing by the light of Jack-o-lanterns, games 
of all kinds, and lots of good things to eat made the 
evening a verv enjoyable one. The party broke 
up in the wee small hours, winding up with a mock 
wedding. Cabbage heads were prominent as bridal 
bouquets and confetti. 

James Baker and Agnes Repp, of the BuflBng 
Department and Stock Record respectively, were 
married on October 12th. All of us wish them 
every happiness. 

Jack Garliner is, among other actixnties, quite a 
famous dance promoter. We have discovered that 
he is one of the "Happy Two." under which nom-de- 
plume the dances are run. Leave a few open dates 
for our Recreation Club dances. Jack, and then we 
will give you a chance to sell some of our tickets.

Rose Ford, of the Shutter and Inspection room, 
put over a nice surprise on the boys and girls of that 
department. The old adage that a woman cannot 
keep a secret has certainly l^een throxMi to the 
■«-inds in this case, for Rose was married on October 
18th, and nobody in the Department knew of the 
fact for some davs. Best wishes. Rose. 

William Shubert, of the Shutter Department, 
is the proud father of a baby girl, born on October 
24th. Good bov. Bill.

to miss some of the good times. 




If you are a member of the Recreation Club you 
are welcome to join the Breeders' Association, and 
are urged to do so. 

Our Association last year, although not particu- 
larly large in membership, was a great success, 
largely due to the fact of our affiliation with the 
Genesee Valley Poultry and Pet Stock Association. 
In consequence of this fact, we, as the Camera 
Works Breeders, show our fancy stock with the 
Genesee Show at Convention Hall, and are judged 
under American Poultry Rules by licensed judges. 

In order to enlarge the appropriation granted to 
the Breeders' Association from the funds of the 
Recreation Club, all members joining this Poultry 
Section are asked to pay a fee of 2.> cents, which, 
together with the appropriation, will be spent for 
prize money, premiums, and ribbons.

In passing the Cathedral, at the rear of our 
factory buildings, I noticed that the stone masons 
were chipping out the old mortar between the large 
stone blocks (of which the Cathedral is constructed) 
and replacing it with cement, the better to hold the 
blocks rigid and firm. 

Why such a seemingly common thing as this 
should impress me was a puzzle at the time, but 
later the impression I retained was resurrected. 
The parallel of the stone masons' job and the theme 
of this article was, to my mind, very similar. 

Most of us — yes, all of us — have subscribed to 
charity in some form or the other. As much as we 
may dislike to do it, it has to be done. There 
always will be old folks who have no means of 
earning a living, and orphans who are too young 
to earn their food and shelter, and cripples, sick 
folks, and all kinds and conditions of unfortunate 
persons whom we, healthy, independent, able-to- 
work-people must support. 

Now — facing facts— how are we going to do it.' 
Through organized charity or following the method 
of "each to his taste," is your complete choice! 
Of course, you will agree to the former method, for 
organization is the only business-like method of 
doing business, and charity, whether we like it or 
not, is everybody's business. This is where my 
"stuck-away-in-the-corner" idea came to light 
again, relative to "Cementing the Blocks." 
"Cementing Friendship" is a common expression, 
but "Cementing Charity" is a new one, yet just as 
necessary to our peace of mind. 

This is how it works! 

Can you imagine what our splendid city would be 
like if all the aged and infirm, cripples and unfor- 
tunates were all dependent on individually applied 
charity.' Turkey has a "system" (.') based on the 
"individual idea." No charitable homes or institu- 
tions, no orphan asylums! All the unfortunates, plus 
the worthless and lazy, infest every street corner 
and building crying and moaning, "Alms, alms." 
No "Cementing Blocks" there! No attempt to 
weed out the undeser\-ing from the legitimate poor 
and needy; no splendid organizations such as we 
boast of in this enlightened hemisphere, and yet — 
do we always appreciate how our charities are 

Most of us have neither the time nor opportunity 
to dive very deeply into the whys and wherefores 
of the institutions we support, but we believe that 
an efficient administration carries on and distributes 
our donations through the Community Chest Fund. 
In order to prove our belief, however, the manage- 
ment of the Camera Works has instructed 293 
foremen and representatives to visit the 41 
institutions supported by the Community Chest. 
The committees are divided into groups of four to 
six persons, with a chairman in each group, who 
reports the committee's findings as to the necessity 
of maintaining the institution visited and the 
conduct of its business. 

To those persons who are apt to be skeptical as 
to the necessity of Community Charity, the reports 
are a revelation of the tremendous amount of good 
our small sacrifice accomplishes. 




Have you a camera? Are you eager to learn 
all the mysteries of photography, as applied to the 
amateur end of the art? If so, you will have the 
opportunity, very shortly, to register in an instruc- 
tion class for amateurs. This class will be under 
the direction of Fred W. Brehm, and the Photo- 
graphic Section of the Industrial Relations Depart- 
ment has been specially equipped with developing 
tanks for the students' use. A schedule is being 
arranged for instruction in "seasonal" photography, 
and the possibilities of photography will be exempli- 
fied according to months of the year. The students' 
work will be criticised by the projection of lantern 
slides, and, if the Story Tellers' Class — of the 
Foremen's Group — is any criterion, the class will be 
very quickly filled. 

Full particulars will be given, on request, 
at the Information Bureau, Industrial Relations 


The Frolics of Hallowe'en were outshone by the 
Frolics of the Cost Department Gang, when thirty 
girls and boys assembled at Bernice Martin's farm 
on West Henrietta Road, to do justice to sausages 
and roast corn, the moonlight, and all the accessories 
of country life. 

All of this happened on a Saturday, so there was 
daylight enough for the usual ball game. The fun 
connected with our national sport, however, was 
totally eclipsed by an astronomical act evidently 
staged for Joe Kersner. A telescope was set up, 
purporting to be an instrument capable of reviewing 
the wonders of the heavens, and discovering Venus. 
.\ccording to all evidence the blamed thing played 
"Old Black Joe," for Kersner came out of the 
observation tower with one black eye. Next time 
Joe looks through a telescope he is going to close 
both eyes and play "safety first." No record is 
available as to the injury inflicted on the barnyard 
live stock, in consequence of Myron Hayes's speech. 

Great praise is due to Bernice and to her father 
for their kindness in lending the farm and the horses 
and wagon. The bunch had a fine time, and when 
somebody in the crowd whistled Irving Berlin's 
popular song, "How are You Going to Keep Them 
Down on the Farm, ' Billy La\sTence was heard to 
remark, "It's easy, if it's Martin place!"

The boys of the Foreign .Shipping Department 
entered into a regular "plot" to deceive their fore- 
man, Charles Duffy. This statement sounds like 
"mutiny," but the fact is that it was done by 
the boys, in collaboration with Mrs. and Miss 
Duffy, just to show Charles how much they thought 
of him. The plot took the form of a s irprise party 
on November 10th. The supper was an admirable 
one and lots of fun happened afterwards. Possibly 
the favorite turn on the program was Joe Mullen's 
famous interpretation of that pathetic poem, "The 
Face on the Barroom Floor." The boys are still 
in doubt as to whether Joe had in mind any partic- 
ular person during his narration of the poem, but 
they are all consoling themselves with the thought 
that prohibition has taken the kick out of every- 


We are introducing a new idea by running this 
"feet" puzzle in opposition to the usual "famous 
eyes" pictm-es. as featured in motion picture 
magazines. The picture below, however, was not 
posed by actresses, but by three well-known office 
girls. Here's a chance for some amateur Sherlock 
Holmes to do a little "deducing." 

Fred Group, in charge of the elevators and pumps, 
in the basement of Bldg. -t, states that the climate 
on Sandford Street is the finest in the state and, to 
prove it, Fred brought into the factory on Friday, 
November I'Sth, quite an appreciable bunch of 
roses and red raspberries on the stems. All this 
happened on a morning when the snow was falling 
and the thermometer was registering twenty-eight 
to thirty-two degrees. Fred claims that he is the 
earUest to get started in his garden and the last 
gardener to harvest his crops. 





Here's a picture of the youngest baseball and 
football fan in Rochester! Those of us who 
attend the Ball Park, or the grid at University 
Field, will recognize this young sportsman. He is 
the son of Day Mather, Inspection Department. 
Elwood has this year attended 34 baseball games, 
and every football game of the U. of R. We'll 
have to keep an eye on Elwood for a possible future 
Sports-Manager of the Recreation Club. 


The Kodak Park Foremen's Club has well earned 
a reputation for its monthly gatherings, and the 
Foremen's Group of this Plant wishes to go on record 
as appreciating the invitations to the meetings. 

An average number of one hundred Camera 
Works Foremen joiuneys down to the "Park" each 
month, to enjoy the excellent food, listen to the 
entertainment, and hear a lecture on some inter- 
esting and educational topic. 

Frank O'Brien, of the State Street Group, hopes 
to be able to return at least a part of the compliment 
by inviting the K. P. Club to share with some of the 
meetings of the Camera Works Foremen. 

The Crease & Cover Department extends sym- 
pathy to Estella Curtiss, Betty Debert, Louise 
Neuwirth, Frank Webster, and Margaret Moen, 
who have all suffered recent bereavements. 

Your plant editor depends largely upon the 
thoughtfulness of his readers to keep him in touch 
with the little happenings that occur within the 
plant. So, please, if you know of things of interest 
report them either to the reporters, or to the plant 

This way we can build a magazine which will be 
of interest to evervone. 

Two more weddings from the Covering Depart- 
ment: Anna Boddery to John VanderstjTi, and 
Gussie Epp to Harry Meyer. The boys and girls 
of the Department wish the happy couples all kinds 
of good things. 


The employees of the Camera Works are always 
wide awake to current events, and seventy-five 
ex-service men celebrated Armistice Day to their 
heart's content. Willard J. Lambert (Kodak 
Assembling Department), Vice-President of the 
Guillod Post, was responsible for the arrangements 
for an excellent banquet and entertainment on 
Thursday, November 11, staged at Powers Hotel. 

Mr. Robertson gave a splendid talk on "The 
Value of Ex-Service Men to the Community," as 
also did Mr. J. Farrell, Welfare Officer of the Legion, 
Monroe Coimty, who took for his subject, "Welfare 
Legislature of the United States Congress." 

The gathering was entirely unofficial, as regards 
the American Legion, and it proved that the 
"Buddy" spirit of the "Laddies who fought and 
won" was very much alive. 


The Foremen's Group completed its first year of 
organization on September 30th, when an election 
was held to vote for the Executive Committee for 
the ensuing year. 

It was largely through the Foremen's Group that 
the Story Tellers Class was formed, and to Frank 
O'Brien goes the credit of starting the ball rolling 
by an excellent presentation of his paper on "The 
Knowledge of Photography as an Asset to the

ment for some weeks, on accoimt of serious sickness. 
We are glad to welcome her back to work with us 





On Monday, October 18th, was rolled the first 
series of the games in the new Kodak Park Monday 
League. This league was organized solely for trick 
workers and is composed of six teams, one team from 
each trick in Building No. 29 and Department No. 

At a meeting held October 18th, the following 
officers were elected for the present season : 

George A. Clark. Bldg. No. 29 — Sec. 
Ivan H. Ball, Bldg. No. 50— Treas. 
Albert E. Norton, Bldg. No. 29— Fin. Sec. 

Team Captains for the various teams are as 
follows : 

Team 501 
Team 502 
Team 503 
Team 291 
Team 292 
Team 293

The Kodak Park Athletic Association orchestra 
has been reorganized under the direction of Prof. 
Fred "Dossie" Dierdorf and will furnish music for 
dancing each noon in the Assemblv Hall from 12:20 
to 12:50. 

This activity has been very popular in past years 
and was largely instrumental in the organization of 
a Kodak Park orchestra. 

Get back of our bovs and BOOST! 


The completion of the fall series in the Noon Hour 
League shows the Outlaw team once more the win- 
ner. In the "World Series" against the All-Stars 
they were again successful, giving them the undis- 
puted championship of the Park. 

About 150 persons, players, fans and razzers, at- 
tended the banquet held in the Assembly Hall on 
Thursday evening, November 18th. The dinner 
was followed by the showing of a good motion pic- 
ture and other entertainment. Music was fur- 
nished by the newly-organized Kodak Park orchestra. 





After numerous requests a golf tournament was 
held by the K. P. A. A. the last of October and the 
interest shown convinced Manager Welles that 
something along this line would be popular. 

Fifteen entries were received and matches were 
plaved up to the finals. 

Fred Willis of Building No. 35 and P. H. Case 
were to meet in this event to decide the Park cham- 
pionship, but due to the fact that the greens were 
closed before the match could be played it was neces- 
sary to postpone it until spring. Much speculation 
is being indulged in as to who will be the winner. 
Plans will be perfected during the winter for a real 
tournament next year. All persons wishing to com- 
pete must send in their names before June 1st. They 
will then be expected to submit their best score each 
month until September 1st, at which time a rating 
list will be prepared and suitable handicaps, based 
on these scores, allowed. The matches will then be 
played off during September and October and the 
winners will be awarded prizes of a suitable nature. 
If 3'ou play golf, keep this in mind. 


If there is one thing that the Testing Department 
is noted for, it is their bowling parties. The most 
recent one was held on Friday, October !29th, which 
proved to be as successful and enjoyable as any. 

Captain Lennon tried so hard for a 90 score that 
he had to have first aid treatment (to his clothes). 
Hushard and Thibault gave an interesting exhibit 
of fancy dancing and the "band" was a big hit. 

The winter is young and it is expected that this 
party will be followed by others during the year. 


The question which remains to be answered is — 
"What can our new basketball team do against 
the better class of teams we are to play this 

"Rip" Benzoni is again in charge of the team 
and will play at one of the guard positions. George 
Willis, a former University player of repute, Earl 
Jones, " Bob " Heaney and E. Bonhurst of last year's 
team are also available, which takes care of the de- 
fensive end in fine shape. Wilbur Woodams of the 
Hawk-Eye Works, another University of Rochester 
star, is playing one of the forward positions with 
Ralph Ticlmor of Springfield Training School op- 
posite him. Jack Brightman, captain of last sea- 
son's team, is showing his usual speed and can be 
coimted upon for a good season. In Johnson, another 
Hawk-Eye man, it is believed that we have secured 
a center who will be able to take care of any man 
he may be pitted against and with J. Rockcastle to 
relieve him, this position seems to be O. K. 

Other industrial concerns in the city have been 
busy working up teams which, without an excep- 
tion, will be first class. On paper the Kodak team 
looks like a winner, but our calculations are based 
largely on the performances in the past of the other 
teams we have met. These will be better this season 
and the fans are anxiously awaiting the opening of 
the season to determine just what we have. The 
teams on the schedule are all good ones and it will 
take a good team to defeat them. 

The interest of the fans will be a large factor in 
bolstering up the spirit of the boys. Let them 
attend the games and through their moral support 
become part of this team which means so much to 

Games will be played every Saturday evening and 
will be followed by dancing, Damon's orchestra to 
furnish the music. 





It has been decided to form a "Rooters" Club at 
Kodak Park to engage in consistent cheering at the 
basketball games during the coming winter. The 
cheering will be led by Jack Kcnnerson who has had 
considerable experience along this line and it is re- 
quested that all those who wish to become affiliated 
with this activity send their names to the K. P. A. 
A. Office at once. 

In order to secure a number of appropriate "yells" 
it has been decided to ofi'er a prize of one dollar for 
every one accepted. Get busy, write one out, and 
send it to Manager Goodridge! 

The importance of this movement has been clear- 
ly demonstrated in connection with all scholastic 
athletics. The stimulation and encouragement 
which it gives the players is most valuable and also 
it will be a good legitimate way to let off steam. 


Only a few soccer games remain to be played in 
the 1920 fall series. Among these is the contest 
with the McXaughton Rangers in the third round 
of the National Cnp Competition. The boys scored 
a 1-0 victory over the Oneida Community at 

Through the active interest of the officers of our 
team, new men are being signed from time to time, 
they recently having secured the servicesof T. Clegg, 
J. Simm and W. Mears and A. Norton. 

Due to bad weather and injured players during 
the past season the record made by the team is not 
all that we might wish. However. President Allar- 
dice and Secretary Rife are already making plans 

for the spring and promise to have a team of which 
Kodak Park can well be proud. 


The Monthly Dinner Meetings of the Kodak Park 
Foremen's Club were resumed on Thursday, Octo- 
ber 14th. Fred Grastorf started things off with one 
of his excellent "Party" feeds. About 42.5 men were 
present, which is the largest number ever enter- 
tained by the club. 

Edwin M. Whitney of the famous Whitney quar- 
tette gave a reading of George M. Cohan's big hit, 
"Hit-the-Trail HoUiday." The excellent manner in 
which it was rendered was thoroughly appreciated 
by those present and many expressions were heard 
approving the committee's selection. We are inter- 
ested to learn that Mr. Whitney is a friend of 
Arthur L. Tenny. Foreman of the Film Pack 

Damon's Orchestra put the finishing touches on 
the entertainment by the wonderful music they 

Frank Jewell Raymond, the "Human Dynamo." 
entertained the club at the November meeting held 
Thursday, November 11th. At this meeting the 
following officers were elected for the coming year: 

President John Schaeffer 

Branch Shipping Dept. 
Vice-President. .John M. Shepherd 
Dept. No. 50 

Secretary James Ward 

Steel Fabricating 

Treasurer Charles Suter

The many friends of Charles E. Tirrell will be 
glad to know that both he and Mrs. Tirrell safely 
completed their journey across the Atlantic, and 
that he has already taken up his duties with Kodak 
Ltd., at the Works, Wealdstone, Middlesex, 

Mr. Tirrell made many strong friends in the 
short time he was in the Engineering and Mainte- 
nance Department at Kodak Park, w^hich is just 
another way of saying that a uniformly courteous 
manner, a disposition hard to ruffle, and a desire 
to understand the other fellow's point of view, help 
very materially in a man's business relationships. 

The receipt at Kodak Park on the date he sailed 
from New York, September 15th, of the announce- 
ment of his marriage in St. Louis, was a surprise 
indeed, for he had not given his friends even a hint 
of his intentions. 


A subscription list intended to be limited to some 
half dozen of those most closely associated with him 
at Kodak Park was raised by popular demand to 
forty-four names, and a draft forwarded to Mr. 
Walter G. Bent, Manager of the Works at Weald- 
stone, who was formerly Assistant Superintendent 
of Building No. 3.5 at Kodak Park and a strong 
personal friend of Mr. Tirrell. With Mrs. Bent's 
co-operation, a breakfast dish in Prince's plate 
and a pair of Louis solid handle "carvers," all 
appropriately engraved, have been presented to 
Mr. and Mrs. Tirrell, with the congratulations and 
best wishes of the E. and M. Department. 

Mr. and Mrs. Tirrell have announced their home 
address as Harrow-on-the-Hill, Middlesex, England . 


Following out the policy of other years, a depart- 
mental basketball league will be formed some time 
during this month, composed of teams representing 
the different departments at Kodak Park. 

In past seasons some very good material has been 
developed through this activity, and a keen spirit 
of rivalry has been apparent. 

The games will be played at a time most conven- 
ient for the greater majority and some good sport 
is assured. Employees of the different departments 
are urged to support their teams in this league. 


Bowling is well imder way at Kodak Park. With 
three leagues composed of our employees, the K. P. 
A. A. League, Yard League, Monday Shift Men's 
League, and a team in the Camera League, we are 
very well represented in this branch of sport. 

The regular K. P. A. A. League games are rolled 
Thursday evening, the Yard on Tuesday evening, 
Camera League on Saturday afternoon and the 
Shift Men on Monday, some of the games being 
rolled in the morning at 10 A. M. and the others at 
4:30 P. M. All matches are held at the Genesee 
Bowling Hall on South Avenue. 

The usual interest is being shown by those who 
participate, but very few persons turn out to witness 
the games. Stop in at the Genesee occasionally if 
it is only for half an hour. Your interest will be 


Election was held on Monday, November 8th, to 
decide on the person to captain the team this season 
and this honor went to Harriet Nobles of the Pur- 
chasing Department. 

Charlie Thompson and Jack Brightman who are 
coaching the team report that splendid progress has 
been made and it is their opinion that little diffi- 
culty will be experienced in defeating any team they 
may meet. The loss of the city championship last 
year was a hard blow to the girls and thej' are start- 
ing out this season with a firm intention of winning 
this title. 

Among those who are trying for positions are 
Elizabeth Fratter, Harriet Nobles, Julia Thayer, 
Betty Nobles, Ethel Stuck, Celia Korn, Gladys Bir- 
cher, Ethel Lush, Gertrude Bock, Leta Bidwell, 
Gertrude Skinner, Ethel Lee and Edith Lee. 

Remember the good times you used to have when 
the girls' team played in past seasons 't Well, this 
year will be a repetition. Start with the opening 
game and follow them through the winter. Your 
help will make a difference every time. 


Kodak Park and the Kodak Park Athletic Asso- 
ciation lost an ardent and sincere booster when Fred 
W. McMillan, foreman of the Black Paper Labora- 
tory, left the employ of the company to take up his 
residence in Florida. 

"Mac" has been at the Park for the past ten years, 
coming here from Columbus, Ohio, with the Artura 
Paper Company. From the start he has been a sup- 
porter of all things Kodak and has served on several 
Liberty Loan and Community Chest Committees. 

It is "Mac's" plan to drive by automobile to In- 
diana where he at one time resided and from there 
to Florida, motoring through Kansas, Kentucky, 
Mississippi, Georgia and Tennessee en route. 

His many friends at Kodak Park wish him the 
very best of fortune in the new country.

Pretty girls in pretty costumes, jolly men, Hallow- 
e'en decorations, excellent music and many, many 
gallons of real old-fashioned sweet cider were some 
of the reasons for the great success of the Hallowe'en 
Masquerade, the first of the 1920-21 dance series, 
held in the Kodak Park Assembly Hall on Friday 
evening, October 29th. The crowd was almost en- 
tirely composed of Kodak people and for this reason 
was doubly successful. 

It was gratifying to note the number of company 
officials and their wives who attended, and Dr. 
Reid, President of the Association, is to be congratu- 
lated on the success of his efforts to have these peo- 
ple present. 

The responsibilities of the Judges, Mrs. A. Thomp- 
son, Mrs. J. H. Haste, Mrs. P. S. Wilcox, Mrs. D. 
E. Reid, Mrs. C. K. Flint, Mrs. A. F. Sulzer, Mrs. 
L. Burrows, Mrs. F. W. Lovejoy and Mrs. H. E. 
Van Derhoef , were many and it was extremely diffi- 
cult to arrive at a decision as' to who should be 
awarded the prize, in view of the large variety of 
excellent designs in costumes. Some of these were 
very unique and after much time and considera- 
tion the winners were announced as follows: Girls' 
prettiest, Agnes Fisher, Main Office; Mildred Wade, 
E. & C. Dept.; Elizabeth Ferguson, Box Dept. 
Girls' most original: Julia Kolb, Inside Pasting 
Dept.; Jenny Wyman, Plate Dept.; Myrtle Reiber. 
Girls' most comical: Katherine Rapp, Film School; 
Ethel Lush, Lacquer & Mtg. Tissue Dept.; Lot- 
tie Wattell. Men's most elaborate: Fred J.Scherer; 
Wm. Carey, E. & C. Dept.; Harold Welner, Dept. 
No. 50. Men's most original: E. Hill, D. O. P. 
Ctg. Dept.; Geo. Crane, Tool Room; Erwin Mil- 
ler. Men's most comical: Earl Hendrix; Sylves- 
ter Doyle, Mr. Gillan's Office; Joseph INIeisch, 
Camera Works. 

The sale of the season books has met with quite 
general approval and a good number of them have 
been purchased. 

The second dance of the series was held on Friday 
evening, November 26th. Damon's Orchestra fur- 
nished the music and this party proved equally en-

extend their best wishes to Mr. and Mrs. Shannon 
for a life of real happiness.

We have reason to believe that the marriage bug 
is at work again in Building No. 36. The boys of 
the Plate Emulsion Department are carefully 
watching C. Fred Maggs, who has been making 
regular trips to Naples, N. Y., during the past 
summer and he was heard to remark with a sigh, 
not long ago, that he wislied other things would 
come down in price besides autos. 


Louise Kohler and John A. Peacock were married 
Tuesday, October 26th. On Wednesday evening, 
October 13th, the girls of the department gave the 
bride a variety shower at the home of Louise Keller 
at which she received many beautiful and useful 
gifts. A theatre party at the Temple Theatre and 
supper were given on October 23rd by Marie Powers. 

Wednesday morning, November 3rd. a very pretty 
wedding took place at the Church of the Sacred 
Heart, when ^'iola Whitfield became the bride of 
Raymond Fetzner. The bride was given in mar- 
riage by her father. The girls of the Packing and 
Sealing Department gave the bride a variety shower. 
The gifts included cut glass and silver. Best of luck I 

Teresa Scully has returned to work after absence 
of several months, fullv restored to health. 

On Tuesday, October 19th, Clara Faker and Leslie 
Schmanke entered upon the proverbial "sea of 
matrimony." Clara is one of the popular Velox 
girls and the expressions of good will of her fellow 
employees are most hearty. 

Mildred Miuard. one of the most popular employ- 
ees of the Box Department, died on Saturday. Octo- 
ber 23rd. Tlie funeral was attended by Mr. Wignall 
and a delegate appointed from among the employees. 

We extend to Anna Cosgrove of the Box Depart- 
ment our sincere sympathy in her recent bereave- 
ment, the death of her brother Patrick, which oc- 
curred on October 2.5th. 




A committee of Kodak Park employees visited 
the Friendly Home for the Aged and the Rochester 
Orphan Asylum and express themselves as very 
much pleased, finding conditions even better than 

The Friendly Home was visited first. Mrs. Lee, 
the Superintendent, had to attend the annual 
meeting of the Directors of the Home, which was 
being held on this day, making it impossible for 
her to accompany us tlirough the building; but we 
were shown about by one of the inmates who, by 
the way, was 83 years of age, and has been at the 
Home for over twenty years. We were invited 
to attend the meeting of the Board, and although 
able to stay only a short time, we were greatly 
impressed by the businesslike manner in which it 
was being conducted. 

The rooms are very neat and clean, with plenty 
of light and air, also hot and cold water in each. 
Two doctors are available at all times, and three 
nurses are in attendance, working in eight-hour 
shifts, one being on duty all the time. At present 
there are 116 persons at the Home, this representing 
the capacity of the institution, although there are 
many on the waiting list. Among the number who 
are there at present are ten widowers and three 
couples. One of the persons with whom we talked 
was a gentleman 89 years old who has been in the 
Home one and one-half years. Up to a few days 
previous to our visit he had never been in need of a 
doctor's attention at any time. He expressed him- 
self as perfectly satisfied with all conditions and 
stated that the institution was a Home in every 
sense of the word. 

On our visit to the Rochester Orphan Asylum, 
Mr. William F. Van Dohlen, the superintendent, 
conducted us through the institution. The methods 
we found in use here are highly commendable. 

Seven cottages were in use at this time, accom- 
modating 1G2 children. Each cottage is in charge 
of a Mother and assistant, being an institution in 
itself. In each of these cottages are quartered 
between 20 and 2.5 children, either boys or girls. 
Meals are prepared and served for the occupants 
by the Mother, and each cottage has its dining room, 
baths, dormitory, and playroom. 

A new cottage, the eighth in number, known as 
the William S. Ely cottage, was just finished and 
ready for occupancy. This cottage and the entire 
equipment is the gift of Mrs. Arthur D. Budd, 
formerly Mrs. Wm. S. Ely in memory of her son, 
Lieut. Wm. S. Ely, who gave his life in the late 
war. It is modern in every detail, and a valuable 
addition to the institution. 

There are at present 26 children who by different 
means are earning a little money for work they are 
able to do. Ten children are in East High School, 
seven in Vocational School, and one in Junior High 
School, specializing in music. The children are 
happy, and every possible opportunity is afforded 
them with the view of making good men and women. 

We appreciate this opportunity of seeing how 
these institutions are being conducted, and realize 
how well the money we have given to the Commun- 
ity Chest is being expended. 

The people in charge are always ready and willing 
to entertain visitors, and we, in behalf of those in 

charge, extend an invitation to you to pay them a

The committee from Kodak Park selected by the 
Community Chest Executive Committee visited 
the General Hospital on November 1st. 

In the absence of ^liss Keith, the superintendent, 
we met ]\Iiss Smith, the assistant superintendent, to 
whom we explained the object of our coming. Miss 
Smith told us that we were at liberty to see every- 
thing in the ho.spital and that she would gladly 
answer any questions which we might ask. Miss 
Smith stated that any complaints would be im- 
mediately investigated, but emphasized the impor- 
tance of reporting complaints as soon as possible. 
The tour of the hospital took us through the 
men's, women's and chihlren's warfls. These wards 
were cleari, liright and orderly. In the last ward 
some patients are kept for months. For these 
children a miniature playground is maintained with 
swings, sandbox, etc., and indoors there is a school- 
room for general educational work. 

The laundry, kitchen and dining room are modern 
and show the result of good housekeeping. All 
the food for the patients is cooked in the one kitchen, 
and then distributed to the various diet kitchens on 
the several floors that are provided with both steam 
tables and ice boxes for the proper care of the food. 
The nurses' dining room provides for one hundred 
and thirty people and is of the self-service type. 

One of the best features brought to our attention 
was the "Department of Personal Relationship," 
in charge of Miss Northrup. Miss Northrup is 
ready at any time to explain to patient, relative 
or friend, anything which may not be clear. It is 
part of her duty to send telegrams, write letters, 
assist in arranging business or personal matters, and 
listen to complaints. A room is also provided her 
in which she may take, during an operation, the 
relatives or friends who may be anxiously waiting 
the outcome. This room is equipped for making 
tea anfl toast. 

It also developed that at present it was costing 
between $4.50 and $,5.00 per day to take care of 
each patient. Their lowest rate is now $2.00 per 
day, so tlic difference is being partly supplied by the 
Commimity Chest. 

We left this institution pleased with what we had 
seen and satisfied that an honest effort is being 
made in every case, either to explain their reason 
for action or to correct immediately any failure on 
their part to do their full duty.

The committee in charge is very well satisfied 
with the success of the first semi-annual contest 
of the Kodak Park Camera Club, and wishes to 
thank its fellow members for the interest displayed. 
They wish also to thank those who, though not 
competing, entered their pictures to help the 

Looking forward to the next contest in April, 1921, 
the committee wishes to announce that certain im- 
portant changes will be made. It has been decided 
to divide the contestants into two groups, one for 
beginners only, a beginner being classified as one 
who had never won a prize in any contest, and the 
other, a group of advanced pliotographers; in other 
words, the latter will be an open contest for any 
member of the Camera Club. Also a reclassifica- 
tion will be made of the pictures entered. The new 
arrangement of classes will be as follows: 
I. Portraiture 
II. Landscape 

III. Marine 

IV. Genre 

There will likewise be some change in the rules 
and regulations which will be announced later.

Rapid strides have been made in increasing the 
size and facilities of the Kodak Park Laundry since 
it was first organized in 1909. When first located 
in Building No. 14, only towels were washed, using 
a machine which handled 100 at a time. Due to 
the increase in demand for this work the departn ent 
was moved to Building No. 30 and from there to 
Shed A-7, where a complete and up-to-date equip- 
ment was installed. 

A. J. Brown, in charge of this work, has supplied 
us with some figures which will give an idea of the 
volume of work being turned out by his department, 
the following being a copy of his records for the 
month of August, 1920: 

Department towels, 38,746; small individual 
towels, 101,775; large individual towels, 13,249; 
sheets, 101; pillow cases, 102; spreads, 20; napkins, 
565; ladies' imiforms, 75; white aprons, 902; 
jumpers and overalls, 1,200; table cloths, 10; coats, 

Work is also being done for several of the other 
branches, as well as the Park.

It is with regret that we learn of the death of 
Ernest D.Lloyd, a former employee of the Recovery 
Department. Previous to his coming to Kodak 
Park, Mr. Lloyd served in the Canadian Army dur- 
ing the entire period of the war, coming through 
without a scratch. Although he had been at the 
Park only a short time he had made many friends, 
due particularly to his genial di.sposition,all of whom 
extend to his surviving relatives most sincere sym- 

Fred ^^'. Wright, who has been connected with the 
Drafting Department for about a year, left Friday, 
September :24th, for Kingsport, Tenn. Mr. Wright, 
who is a graduate of Cornell L'niversity, 1917. in 
Mechanical Engineering, has the best wishes of the 
boys in his promotion and we are sure Mr. Wilcox 
will have an able and valuable addition to his engi- 
neering staff. 

We at Kodak Park are pleased to learn that a 
daughter has been added to the "Walter G." branch 
of the Bent family and is to be called by the very 
attractive name of Betty Bent. The many friends 
made by Walter during the years he was at Kodak 
Park as Assistant Superintendent of Building No. 
35 think of him often and extend to Mrs. Bent and 
himself their congratulations. 

On Tuesday, November 2nd, a daughter was born 
to Mr. and Mrs. T. Dawson. Mr. Dawson is an 
employee of the Emulsion Coating Department. 

The employees of the Emulsion Coating Depart- 
ment unite in expressing their sympathy to their 
fellow employee, Matthew Scanlon, in the event of 
his recent bereavement, the death of this mother. 

Send in the children's photo and see if we can 
have a page of future Kodak Workers. ^lark on 
back of each photo the child's name and age and 
all photos will be returned. 

Elbow grease is warranted not to soil the hands. 

Gertrude Wilson, who has been Mr. Hastings's 
stenographer for about two years, left Friday, Octo- 
ber 21st, to be married to William Hogan. 

The girls of the E. & M. Department gave Ger- 
trude a variety shower and she has the best wishes 
of her many friends in the Engineering Department. 

Congratulations to Harold Kykendall of the Roll 
Coating Department on the occasion of his marriage 
October 30th to Hazel Sanderson of Building No. 
42. A short honeymoon was enjoyed and the happy 
couple will soon he in their new home. The boys 
of the department wish you and Hazel a long life of 

Guy Vinton of the Chemical Plant has been out 
of town on business and was unable to get back in 
time for election. "Bob" Cook, in writing to him, 
offered his sympathy in the loss of his vote, which 
would according to the dope have gone to Cox. 
Guy in answering said that he didn't feel so badly 
about it, as he expected to be able to get Mr. Seel 
and George Tozier away before election day, and 
that this would offset matters. 

A group of men in one of the departments at the 
plant was absorbing the contents of a bulletin 
board on which was posted a report showing that 
the percentage of tardiness during the past month 
had been 50 per cent. One of the men, being touched 
by the nature of this report, turned to his com- 
panions and said: "Fellows, can't we put this de- 
partment on top? Let's make it 100 per cent!" 

A deal of considerable importance from an inter- 
national standpoint was consummated the other 
day when Jack Donahue transferred his 1918 
straw hat to "Doc" Keegan, who is having it re- 
modeled for next season. Beats all how the Irish 
stick together. 

Did you notice the election returns from the State 
of Tennessee.'' If you didn't, it might interest you 
to know that the State went Republican, against all 
prediction, based on past results. Perhaps "Perly" 
Wilcox has had a good effect on this community 

We regret to announce the death of Mrs. Leta J. 
Downes, wife of Wm. Downes of the Roll Coating 
Department. Mrs. Do^\Ties was on an extended 
\'isit to her girlhood home in Ireland and the sad 
news came unexpectedly. Our sympathy is ex- 
tended to the familv in their bereavement. 

A wedding of unusual interest took place at the 
Holy Cross Church, Charlotte, on Tuesday morning, 
November 9th, when Frances M. McFarlin became 
the bride of Edward T. Christy of Building No. 33, 
both having been many years with the company. 
On Wednesday evening, November 3rd, a shower 
was given at the home of the bride, at which time 
she received a chest of flat silver, several pieces of 
cut glass and many other useful gifts. Best wishes! 


At the time this issue went to press, the finishing 
touches were being added to the plans for the 
Annual Exhibit of the Kodak Park Fur and Feather 
Clulj, held from November 30th to December 3rd. 

Interest this year was very keen, and the number 
of entries greatly exceeded that of last year. This of 
course was to be expected, as the club was only just 
organized shortly before the last show, and the 
membership body was small. 

As the result of a membership campaign which 
was held during the past few months, many new 
members were secured and at present a good sub- 
stantial organization exists. The prize of 100 
pounds of feed for the member who secured the 
greatest number of new applications was won by 
President Frank X. Hauser. 

President Hauser is ser\'ing his second term and 
it is largely due to his efforts and interest that such 
good results have been obtained. The K. P. A. A . 
has offered two cups for the winners at the show 
and also several cash premiums will be awarded. 

We are pleased to announce that through the 
efforts of some of the members, a special price has 
been obtained on feed from one of the mills. Per- 
sons desiring to take advantage of this are requested 
to get in touch with Secretary Charles Smith, 
Building No. 33. 

If there are any employees who are interested 
in this activity and desire to become affiliated with 
the Club they may send their names to Secretary 
Smith, who will see that they are admitted at once.

Oh Boy I but the girls of 15 (not age. but floor), did 
enjoy their Hallowe'en party. It was some surprise 
on Marion. Oh. yes, a great deal of vamping was 
done by Ebba Bahrman. so much so that Marion 
was just out of luck all evening. Dancing, eats 
and everything, even a solo by our Marie McKee. 

A pair of glasses was foimd in Miss M. Mclntyre's

John Thompson of the Engraving Depart- 
ment is the inventor of an automobile signal — a 
mirror and hand. By a touch on a small lever, the 
hand projects from behind the mirror and the horn 
sounds, leaving both hands free to control the car; 
the whole apparatus is attached to the windshield 
and in plain view. An automatic switch throws 
light on the hand at night. This invention is 
patented in the United States and Canada. 

John Flanigan of the Testing and Packing De- 
partment has returned from his vacation. He did 
some hunting in the wilds of Western New York, 
but reports no large game. He did not stop to 
fish, but spent much time enjoying the beauties of 
nature, as evidencefl Ijy the large quantity of 
gasoline used.

The girls of the Stock Department Office were 
"tickled-to-death" when they were invited to a 
Hallowe'en party at Crick Barker's, for they all 
knew what was in store for them. 

Should a stranger have entered the spooky, 
dimly-lighted room, immediately after the arrival 
of the girls, they would have seen among the masked 
marvels, two lost and lonely boys, one representing 
a drunken sailor who, with cornsilk for his goatee, 
and corncob pipe, took his part to perfection. 
Who wouldn't make a good sailor if they had a sailor 
beau like Don.'' The other boy, a regular goodie- 
goodie, was immediately vamped by the Hula Hula 

dancer (?). Katherine Stopeck represented 

a regular old maid, with her high necked waist and 
long skirt, and hat decorated with feathers of every 
kind and description, arranged in every direction. 
(Can you imagine Katherine dressed in this manner.'') 
As for originality, Helen Buggie dressed as Sis- 
Hopkins took the prize. Sunbonnet Nell and a 
simple little girl also took part in the fun. 

The party was one continuous performance of 
games, noise, singing and last, but not least, eats. 
We certainly had one grand and glorious time, and 
much credit is given to Crick for her wonderful 
ability in decorating and the planning of a regular

you back, Dora. 

Cleanliness may be next to godliness, but it's 
bad business when a good stenographer like Janet 
Hickey slips on a freshly-mopped marble step and 
breaks her wrist. We all admire her philosophical 
remark, that "it might have been worse," and we 
are glad to welcome her back, damage repaired, 
after two months' absence from the fold. 

We give a hearty welcome to Vera Franklin, 
who is taking Miss McKelvey's place in the Order 
Department. Vera is not a "New Comer" in the

Department and is fast adapting herself to her new 
work. We wish her success.

Five officials of the Famous Players-Lasky Cor-

The Plant Safety Committee of the Hawk-Eye 
Works was disbanded November 1st, after six 
months excellent service, and a new committee 
appointed. The retiring committee was the first 
upon which the foremen appointed their owti 

Judging from results attained, appointment by 
the foremen is the best method of securing oiu- 
Safety Boosters. To have the foreman working 
with and backing his Safety Committeeman is 
half the battle — and that condition seems to have 

The work of the Safety representative is one of 
constant vigilance and watchfulness to pick out 
the hazards before the damage is done. Naturally, 
there is more to the task than merely picking out 
the danger, for after reporting to the Safety Com- 
mittee it must be followed up and persistently 
argued until adopted. 

George Aulenbacher, foreman of the Assembling 
Department, was made Chairman of the Plant 
Safety Committee some two years ago while em- 
ployed as toolmaker. His work in this regard, was 
marked from the start, so that he has been reap- 
pointed for term after term. Mr. Aulenbacher, 
not only has the faculty of keeping his own interest 
in safety at the boiling point, but also, he is able 
to stir up those who lag behind. 

The Plant Safety Committee, recently appointed, 
is coimted on to continue the good work of its 
predecessor. In spite of our excellent record in 
accident prevention, there is plenty of work ahead 
for the new committee. Running in the factory 

must be stopped al)solutely. Fire drills must be 
made more orderly by eliminating talking, laughing 
and skylarking. Guards must be kept in repair 
and in use. Aisles must be kept clear, and ever}' 
employee reminded constantly of his obligation to 
keep the. other fellow from getting hurt. 

The Safety Committee appointed to serve for 
six months is made up as follows: George Aulen- 
bacher, Assembling Department, Chairman; George 
Breslin, Drafting Department; Adolph Nolte, M. 
and C. Department; Peter Lelek and Fred Yaekel 
of the Moulding Department; Wm. Savage, Assemb- 
ling Department; Oliver Nicol, Aclu-omat Lens 
Department; Otto Westphal, Blocking Department; 
Wm. Klos, Tool Department; Raymond Wall, 
Office; Ralph Burhams, Brass Department; Ralph 
Goodberlet, Stock Department; Edward McGary, 
Buff and Plate Department; Walter Maurer, Wood 
Department; Joseph Frank, Wood Department; 
Louise Opperman, Shipping Department; Frank 
Del Monaco, Anastigmat Lens Department; Berton 
Tompkins, Anastigmat Lens Department; Arthur 
Rapp, Mounting Department; Florence Kamb, 
Centering Department ; Lena McRae, Cleaning and 
Inspecting Department; Frances Mosher, Cement- 
ing Department. 

Iva May Park, of the Cementing Department, 
was married on October 4th to Mr. Harold Baxter. 
The best wishes of her own Department and all the 
rest of Hawk-Eye go to her. A number of her girl 
friends gave her a shower previous to the wedding, 
at which she received manv beautiful gifts.

A squad of twenty girls is practicing twice a 
week in competition for places on the Hawk-Eye 
Girls' basketball team. Enthusiasm is rimning 
high, as a most successful season is predicted by 
the management. The girls are indeed fortunate 
in obtaining the services of Allan Petersen as head 
coach. "Pete." who was one of the stellar lights 
on the Hobart College five last year, is rather 
optimistic over the ability shown by his charges at 
their first few practice meetings. "Chuck" Prentice, 
Hawk-Eye's all-roimil athlete, will assist in teaching 
the girls the fine points of the game. The coaches 
contemplate picking ten girls to make up the team. 
Prominent among the girl athletes, who are working 
hard for the team's success, are .Mice Gears, Grace 
Wiemer, Elizabeth Meerdink, Ethel Reinhardt, and 
Jane De Graff, of this year's Hawk-Eye Girls' Base- 
ball Team, Loretta Ercth. Virginia Earl. Hattie 
Batzing and Olive Kcllett. The wearers of the 
purple and white will play out of-town teams as 
well as all local teams. 


Some eighty Hawk-Eye employees have signified 
their intention of participating in the good old game 
of pinochle. The scliedule calls for a series of games 
to be played during the noon hour, and covering a 
period of about two months. Keen competition 
is expected before the winning six men carry off the 
prizes ott'ered. Russell Craib has been appointed 
as chairman, and Dennis Dwyer as secretary of a 
committee wliicli will draw up the rules of the

tion for the indoor soccer season, which is soon to 
get under way. The teams which have been 
entered in this League are Kodak Park, Camera 
Works. ^Lain Office, and Hawk-Eye. At the 
present time a noon hour league is being formed, 
which should help Manager Ansel to find any 
hidden talent around the plant. 

Alice Gears is a newcomer in the Main OflBce, to 
which she was transferred from the Production 
Department. Miss Gears has nearly two years 
service to her credit, and is prominent in Hawk- 
Eye athletics. 

When John Eiseman. foreman of the Moulding 
Department, needed a man to take charge of the 
night siiift. he looked around just once, then pro- 
moted Ernest Ri>l)l)ins. Ernest hails from Ontario.

Of course Hawk-Eye wishes to be a champ in 
every hne of sport. Records show that it has been 
a long time since we have had a first-class bowling 
team. Captain George Kosel, our old standby, is 
still toppling the pins with a general average of 187. 
The other boys are trying hard to steer clear of the 
splits, but somehow or other they get them marked 
on the score sheets. To be a success the bowling 
team must have the whole-hearted support of all 
Hawk-Eye employees. If you can bowl why not 
make yourself known to Manager "Speedy" Witz, 
or Captain Kosel, and arrange to get into the line- 
up. Those who cannot bowl, can do their share 
by dropping in at the Genesee Recreation Hall on 
South Avenue any Saturday afternoon at 3:30. 
Lend your encouragement to the players by 
cheering them on. Let's keep out of the cellar. 

Lucy Tate and Dorothy Kucht have returned 
from their trip to Holland, where they spent most 
of the past summer. Both girls report a rare good 
time and were not seasick once. No, not once! 


Anastigmat Fine Grinding Department 

Harry Sanger, of the Moulding Department, 
wandered away for a short time, but finally came 
trooping back to Hawk-Eye. We are glad to wel- 
come him back, because the large representation of 
Sangers we already have just seem to fit. 

Allan Peterson who did a lot toward bringing 
two pennants to Hawk-Eye last summer, has given 
up his office work to go into the Centering 

We extend our hearty congratulations to Mr. and 
Mrs. Harold McKee, of the Anastigmat Lens De- 
partment, on the arrival of an eight-pound baby 
girl on October 20th. 

Rumor has it that Edith Campbell, of the In- 
specting and Cleaning Department, will be a bride 
on December 27th. The good wishes of a large 
number of Hawk-Eytes go with her. 

The Leather Department wishes Laura Knoeferl 
a speedy recovery.

It would require the grand and glorious terms of 
the circus bill to describe adequately the array of 
talent displayed at the first Premo Club advance 
meeting held in the Premo Club Room. With the 
hall packed, the meeting was opened by President 
John H. McKenny, who made a few remarks, and 
asked for the co-operation of all in securing new 
members for the club. Jack Dempsey, the Irish 
comedian, in his act of jokes, songs and dancing, 
was good for a young chap. Margaret McDonald, 
as a rival of Ada Jones, is getting a good start 
toward the professional vaudeville stage. "Sam" 
Kelman, in his fimny make-up, is some entertainer, 
and kept the audience in a roar all the time. Pearl 
Clark, the saxophone girl, with the assistance of 
the Premo Club Orchestra, played a number of 
popular selections, bringing out some good singing 
from the audience. "Hank" Adams, the juggler, 
sure did please the children with his funny antics. 
His work was cleverly done, and brought forth 
numerous bursts of applause. The ])rogram was 
concluded by showing several reels of moving 
pictures which were taken at the Premo Club clam 
bake. This splendid program was prepared by 
R. K. Hutchings, W. Gerstner, W. Van Sanford, 
J. Renner, F. Seelman and the Misses A. Garrett, 
E. Beal, and O. Fagan. 


Did you notice how Emily Repp as catcher 
juggled the fouls, Alice Green never reaching first 
base, and Olive Fagan knocking a home run? And 
then ask why the girls lost. 

It was some acrobatic stimt that Charles Sullivan 
pulled off in the obstacle race. Wonder if he will 
repeat it for us at some of our advance meetings? 

W'hen we were kids, we used to tie a grain of 
corn to a string, and feed it to the chickens in order 
to catch them, but this, we will admit, is the first 
time we have seen the stunt tried with marshmallow 
drops. It is a good thing that Mr. Wheeler came 
to Emma Kraftschick's rescue or she would have 
swallowed the string. 

Girls, don't forget to wear your caps and remove 
your rings when working around machines. Safety 


On each floor level there are three fire alarm 
stations, with a sign reading, "Pull hook down and 
then let go." This automatically sounds the 
proper signal on electric horns in all departments, 
at the same time notifying all employees of the 
location of the fire. The Mill Brigade responds to 
the first alarm and reaches any part of the building 
in 40 seconds. Frequent drills are held, which keep 
the boys well informed and in good practice, making 
it next to impossible for a serious fire to get a start 
during working hours. A sprinkling system through- 
out the plant and a Western Union Signal Station 
in each department, on which the night watch- 
man registers every hour and can get prompt 
assistance, gives protection to the building and 
property outside of working hours.

About ninety of the Premo Club Members, their 
wives and friends, left the Works on a recent 
Saturday in a chartered car for Rifle Range. This 
being a beautiful late autunui day, tables were set 
in the grove, and everything started off with a well 
prepared program, the dinner being the first number. 

Burlesque Ball Game (Men right hand tied 
behind them vs. women), won by men, score 5-i. 

Events for women : Ball throwing contest won by

Obstacle race won by "Babe" Cahill; Shoe race 
won by Olive Fagan. 

Events for men: Ball Throwing contest won by 
William Halpin; Obstacle race won by Walter 
Rutan; Ostrich race won by Walter Martin; 
Marshmallow race won by John Roach.

The boys of the Bowling Team are showing good 
form up to date, taking three games from Folmer- 
Century at the opening of the League; then 
came the Camera Works team, considered a 
very strong team, but the boys came through 
in good shape, annexing the second and third 
games, after getting away to a poor start by 
losing the first game. In the second game they 
rolled 999, and with better breaks the team would 
easily have bowled over the 1000 mark. The third 
game was a thriller, Premo taking it by a margin 
of one pin. After this showing. Homer Ransom, 
the manager of the team, thought the team ought 
to have a bit of encouragement, so he asked a number 
of the fans dowia to see our team roll. The girls of 
the third floor, led by Emma Kraftschik, were much 
in evidence with their cheering. The boys are all 
in good shape, and are giving a good account of 
themselves, and hope to rest in first place before

Of course you've all noticed the stone-marker, 
1895, in the front of the building, which reminds 
you of the year of the erection of our factory. But 
do you know who is directly responsible for that 
marker being where it is today? None other than 
Albert Knitter, the only Premo employee who is 
known to have had an active part in the erection 
of the building. 

"Al's" trade in 1894 was that of a stone mason in 
the employ of Hiram H. Edgerton (our present 
Mayor), who had the contract for the erection of 
the Premo factory at that time. Mr. Knitter was 
the only man willing to remain on the job on Janu- 
ary 1, 1895, a holiday, in order to place the marker. 
He completed the task imaided and as a result of his 
willingness to please the contractors and the owner. 
\Yilliam F. Carlton, he was hired by the latter as 
night watchman and is still employed at Premo — a 
period of -25 years of service. 

"Al" is now one of the maintenance men at 
Premo, and occasionally performs the duties of 
relief watchman. 

How many can show such a record of long, faith- 
ful ser\'ice as Albert Knitter.' 


A Hallowe'en frolic was held by the employees, 
their wives and sweethearts, of the Employment 
and Service Department, at the home of Mr. and 
Mrs. William J. Gerstner, 146 Turpin Street. The 
scene was decorated with flags, witches, black cats, 
pumpkins and oak leaves. A buffet lunch was 
served and an unusual lot of Hallowe'en pranks were 
pulled off. The committee in charge was Adelbert 
MacNaliy, Margaret Kreckman and Irene Wilt.

In the spring of 1919, when the scarcity of homes 
became apparent, William J. Russell, of the Plating 
Department, bought a lot at 106 Eal Street, Gates, 
and immediately started to grade and put in a 
foimdation. With the help of his fifteen-year-old 
son, this was accomplished in about two months, 
in spare time only, and by the time the snow began 
to fall, they had built a temporary house, laying 
plans and building with the intention of completing 
the following year. As soon as the weather per- 
mitted in the spring of 1920, he started to complete 
the house, but on account of his savings running 
low, after paying for material and supplies, he de- 
cided to place a bank mortgage on the house, to 
enable him to purchase more supplies. Upon 
making inquiries, he found that the banks do not 
make loans on property outside of the city, except 
on rare occasions. For this reason, he had to stop 
building until he could obtain a private loan. This 
was procured, and operations started again; then 
one trouble after another began to "pop" up. On 
Saturday afternoons, when he could work, it would 
rain, and with the evenings getting shorter, it looked 
like a hopeless task. About this time, Mr. Ruttan 
heard about the difficulties and said. "Russell, how 
would you like to have a bunch of us fellows come 
out there next Saturday afternoon and help you 
complete your house?" Russell thought this would 
be fine, so Mr. Ruttan asked for volimteers, and as a 
result every one at the Premo wanted to have a 
part in helping to build, even the girls. Premo-ers. 
representing each department of the Works were 
right there assisting in every way possible in order 
to make this a record worth while, .\fter toiling 
for several evenings and Saturday afternoon, they 
concluded that they, as workers of the Premo, did 
something unusual, and went home happy in their 
minds that they could lighten the burdens of a 
fellow- worker. The result of their help is that Mr. 
and Mrs. Russell and family have a cozy, neat and 
attractive seven-room house which they now 
occupy. Surely the Premo can feel justly proud 
that they have such a complete line-up in their 
Works, as there is seemingly nothing which they 
call impossible, and whether the boys work overtime 
nights or day time as they did in this case, they are 
men worth while. 

I want to take this opportimity to express my 
appreciation of the wonderful treatment I received 
from both the Sick Relief Association and the Medi- 
cal Department during my long illness, to Bertha 
Mischler, our Visiting Nurse, and to the employees 
of the third floor for the beautiful flowers sent me. 
I am especially grateful to all for the extreme 
courtesy they have shoxsTi me. 

(Signed) Lexa Latta. 



Much credit must be given to all employees of 
the Premo on their splendid co-operation during 
"No Accident Week." Not one accident in the 
plant during this campaign speaks well for us, and 
we are proud of the results. Now let us keep the 
good record throughout the vear. It can be done. 
Will you help? 

The sincere sympathy of all the Premo Workers 
is extended to William Young, foreman of the 
Cabinet Department, and his family in the loss of 
his daughter Emma Estella, who passed away 
Monday, November 1, at the family residence, 
3371 Lake Avenue. 

The employees of the Premo extend their sincere 
sympathy to Florence Glasgow, of the Assembly 
Department, on the death of her mother. 

We wish to extend our sincere sympathy to 
Charles Werder. of the Tool Department, whose 
father passed away recently. 

On Friday, November 5th, the Premo Club room 
was crowded to the door, this being the second 
Advance Meeting of the season. It seemed to be 
the finest representative body of Premo-ites and their 
families and friends; mothers came with their babies; 
fathers and grandfathers turned out to see a splen- 
did vaude\nlle show. The audience insisted on 
a number of encores, for some of the acts brought 
down the house. From first to last the programe 
was punctuated with applause, the audience at 
frequent intervals manifesting its hearty approval 
of the performance. Opening the program with a 
selection by the Premo Club Orchestra, entitled 
"Let Us Chase the Squirrels," directed by Ralph 
Hutchings : 

Act 1 — Ruth Parker, a belle of the Assembly 
Department. Ruth is a sweet singer, and we will 
expect a return engagement. 

Act 2 — Fred Wagner. Some day Fred will be a 
real entertainer. 

Act 3 — Schultz Sisters in a highly appreciated 
piano and •violin selection. 

Act 4 — William Doyle, Irish songs and jokes, 
was a constant delight. 

Act 5 — Miss P'ishbaugh — the warmth of her voice 
just brought forth a burst of applause. 

Act 6 — Green-Cahill, of the Box Camera Depart- 
ment, must not be looked upon from the standpoint 
of their title; a command of varying styles, a poetic 
imagination, an inborn artistic sense, a superb 
vocal equipment, are a few of their qualifications 
from the "Plant Editor's" \'iewpoint. Their readings 
of the parodies from the latest issue of the Kodak- 
Magazine, as the employees would like to have it 
printed, not as it is edited, was cleverly made up, 
and these "actresses" are to be commended on their 
cleverness along these lines. 

Act 7 — Brown Harmony-4, boys from the As- 
sembly and Cabinet Departments. Their work 
showed fine intelligence and is beyond praise. 

Act 8 — ^Wagner & Company, playlet, entitled 
"A Happy Home," true to life in several respects, 
was cleverly acted. 

These shows are given to all Club members and 
their friends. Why not join now, dues $1.50 per 

As a token of their ajipreciation to the company 
in looking out for their welfare and safety, a num- 
ber of the girls sent a Round Robin, which was 
signed by all women employees who were supplied 
free with the Keep Kool Safety Caps, thanking the 
management for the same. 

Herbert BroANTi, of the Plant Maintenance De- 
partment, has purchased a house at 336 Caroline 
Street, and says he is going to have a real house 
warming this winter. 

Are you a booster for safety.' If not, why not.' 
You mav save some one's life, is it worth while? 

Etta Hurwitz has been advanced to take charge 
of the Statistical Department, and is now located 
in Mr. Ruttan's office. 

An employee of the Accessory Department, with 
an inventive turn of mind, is working on an in- 
genious device which will enable him to throw a 
box of nails, a strip of brass and a piece of lumber 
in one end of his machine, and after a few moments, 
find a complete tripod at the other end of it. 

The sa\nng man has a piece of money for the 
rainy days, peace of mind for all the days and is fit 
at a fiddle every day. 

W'e have a basketball team composed of Dorothy 
Stubbe, Ethel Green, Jennie Walzer, Olive Fagan 
(Cap't), Pauline Schwartz, Edith Heinrich; subs — 
Edith Beal, Margaret Schwartz, Mary Dafner, and 
Elizabeth Cahill, who from the looks of things now, 
will give a good account of themselves. Every 
worker should give their loyal support to this team, 
and our presence at the games will be important 
features in encouraging their efforts for a successful 
season. So all together every one, let us attend the 
games and cheer the players. 





Daughter of William Schuler, Foreman Metal Department 

George Wilson, seventeen years old. of the As- 
sembly Department, is to be congratulated for his 
nerve in defending the Premo alone in the golf 
tournament held recently at the Genesee Valley 
coiu-se. George gave a good account of himself, 
and we are proud of him. 

The Brown Quartet, consisting of Percy Brown, 
Charles Ware, Ray Blackwell and Cyril Eve, em- 
ployees of the Premo, surprised us when we saw 
them appear on the vaudeville stage at the Family 
Theatre recently. At the rate these boys are 
going, they will soon be in a class with the Lyric 
Quartet and then we can expect some good singing 
at oiu- advance meetings. 

■\Ve have with us in the Cost and Pay Roll 
Department Elmore Ingleby, who has been trans- 
ferred from the Hawk-Eye Works. Elmore, you 
are welcome, so make vourself at home. 

Estelle Blanche Steve, a former employee of the 
Premo, who was married recently to Lloyd V. Wood 
of East Rochester, called on us a few days ago, and 
wants to thank all who were responsible for the beau- 
tiful presents they received, and will welcome us 
any time at their home, 228 East Avenue West, 
East Rochester. 

We are glad to have with us again Reata Da^•is 
Reulbach, Lauretta O'Xeil and Caroline Latal, 
who have been confined to their homes for several 
weeks on account of illness. They all wish to thank 
the Medical Department for the kind attention they 
received during their illness. 

Philip Voelckel, Jr., has been appointed chairman 
of the Progressive Pedro parties and dances, and 
John Roach as assistant. This action became 
necessary on account of L. C. Wheeler tendering his 
resignation, so as to be able to attend the Safety 
Coimcil meetings which fall on the same evening. 

We had a great time last night, was the way they 
all expressed themselves the morning after the night 
before, the event being the second Progressive 
Pedro party and dance of the season held in the 
Premo Club Room. After eight games of cards 
were played, prizes were awarded, and refreshments 
served. The floor was cleared, and dancing was 
enjoyed until a late hour, music being furnished by 
Mildred Stritzel at the piano, Harry Gomm, 
violinist and George Texter at the drums. Philip 
Voelckel, Jr., John Roach, Margaret Schwart and 
Ethel Green constituted the committee in charge. 

The Focusing Department just "ate 'em up" at 
their Sausage and Corn Roast, which was held 
at the home of George Franklin, 261 Sanford Street. 
The programme in charge of Jane Feinberg, in- 
cluded a song by Florence Frosdick, entitled 
"Nobody Loves Me," and other songs by Harold 
Fleischer. Leona Xeuwirth and Gwendoline 
Brownell were marshalls of the eats, while Loretta 
Seeler, Eleanor P'razer and Mrs. Franklin acted 
as the Committee in charge. 

A niunber of the Box Camera employees held an 
outing recently at the home of a former employee 
of this department — Hanna Fisher-Harter of Pitts- 
ford. Although there were thunder showers early 
in the day, Ijy four o'clock the skies cleared and 
the sun began to shine. Mildred Stritzel added to 
the pleasure of the day by her piano selections. 
Lena Latta and little Kate Titus helped to make 
the programme complete by their antics and "Joe" 
Epstein gave a good account of himself at all times 
with the eats. The committee in charge was 
Elizabeth Franklin and John Renner. 

Motor cars were humming down Titus Avenue, 
boimd for a jolly Halloween party given by Fanny 
Xorthrup. Games were enjoyed, a vocal selection 
was given by "Joe" Epstein and Jolin Renner led a 
quartette which would make "Al" Field green with 
en\'y. The swan dance given by Anna Johnson 
and Lena Latta showed us the latest steps in ball 
room classics. Every one had a good time, and the 
motors returned at a wee small horn-. 

Due to the ill-health of his wife, Albert Wilcox, 
of the Cost and Pay Roll Department, foimd it 
necessary to sell out all his household goods and 
move his family to San Diego, California. Mr. 
Wilcox intends to leave at a later date. 

Prize winners of the October Progressive Pedro 
parties held in the Premo Club Room were as 
follows: Ladies, first, Mrs. Wm. Halpin; second, 
Mrs. H. Ruckdeschel; consolation, Florence Smith. 
Gentlemen, first, LawTence Bachman; second, Wil- 
liam Farrell; consolation, Frank Heier. 

Linda Schwing's name was not included in list of 
reporters published last month. Linda is reporter 
for the second floor offices, so send her items for the 
Kodak Magazine. 

"Jack" Young and Erhart Hafner of the Cabinet 
Department, have been doing quite a bit of talking 
lately about chickens. It looks as though they 
were going into the chicken business. How about 
it, boys.^

The Folmer-Century Men's Bowling League 
started their season on Wednesday evening, October 
20, 1920, at the Grand Central Alleys. A large 
turnout of bowlers and rooters was on hand. Short 
speeches were given by Wm. F. Folmer, Manager 
of the plant, and George T. Roche, Works Account- 
ant. ^Ir. Folmer put the first ball down the alley 
for a strike, and from then the race was cm for the 
pennant. The boys seem to be in gootl form and 
are showing a lot of interest. The names the teams 
will roll under, and the captains of the teams are 
as follows:

has purchased a new home on Wilder Street. 

John R. Barron, of the Experimental Department, 
has recovered from his operation, and is now back 
at work again.

ONE of the features of the Kodak 
Office Recreation Chib that is 
arousing considerable interest and afford- 
ing some ninety penpushers more than a 
little exercise, is the twelve-team bowling 
league, now well under way. 

The league, due to a two-weeks late 
start, will roll 22 games instead of the 
usual string number of 24, but all are 
convinced that 22 games will show up the 
real winner just as well as the extra two. 
The rooters are enjoying the games even 
more so than the bowlers themselves, for 
they sit on the sidelines and witness their 
favorites roll any score between 74 and 
250. "Charlie" Howard of the Stock 
Department team and Carl Mattern of 
the Engraving Department team hold 
the respected and respective honors, and 
Charlie even goes so far as to say that 

he will hit the hundred mark before the 
season is over. "Just watch me." 

The league has rented alleys at the Elm 
for Saturday afternoons, the Eagle alleys 
on North Washington Street for Tuesday 
nights, and Liederkranz alleys on West 
Main Street for use on Friday nights.

The basketball outlook for the season 
1920-21 is the brightest ever. Kodak 
Park is in the field again this year with an 
exceptionally strong quint and there is 
little doubt but what they will uphold 
the fine reputation of superb basketball 
playing that their predecessors have built 
up. Manager Goodridge is booking games 
with all the big fives of the city who 
might be classed as contenders for the

If you turn to the third cover of the 
Magazine you will note the standings of 
the different aggregations of teams which 
enable some four hundred lovers of the 
pin game to show other organizations in 
Rochester that Kodak has some first 
class talent in the wav of bowlers. 

At the close of the bowling season, why 
not have a championship tournament of 
the winners in each of the six leagues, 
to decide which plant has the best league? 
Then, perhaps, a little match might be 
arranged with the winning team of the 
Camera Bowling League. How about it? 

showed lack of interest in the building up 
of a real team to represent the Kodak 
Office. Fred Fogarty is to manage the 
team and John Boeing, University of 
Wisconsin basketball man, has been 
engaged as coach. The Stratford Rink 
has been secured for a court on account 
of its fine floor, the easy access to Main 
Street, and also because of its size, for 
it can accommodate a very large crowd. 
The men constituting the squad are: 
McNeill, Morrow, Hardy, Culbertson, 
Diehl, Marcello, Sausage and Hutchins. 
Kodak now stands a better chance of 
copping some kind of a title or pennant 
where it had but one before. Now, we're 
all eagerly awaiting a get-together of the 
two teams to decide which team deserves 
the honors in the organization. How 
about it, Goodridge and Fogarty? 


Winter, shouldn't necessarily, drive 
sports to cover. There are any number 
of keen outdoor winter sports, snowshoe- 
ing, skiing, skating, etc. We perform a 
lot on the basketball court, more on the 
smooth dance hall floor, and a great num- 
ber of us stroll into a bowling alley and 
fight with the pins. But say — why can't 
some of you men, lovers of the game of 
hockey, get the boys on skates on the 
slippery ice, with a view to forming a 
snappy hockey league. 

The undertaking requires nothing but 
a little shove and a good push and the 
league is oft'. Hawk-Eye had an excel- 
lent track team last summer, and what's 
wrong with the idea of putting these men on 
the steel runners, giving them good hickory 
clubs and letting them go after the puck? 
Kodak Park, Camera Works and the 
Main Office will gather together their best 
men, to say nothing of the material that 
lays dormant in Folmer-Century and 

Come on, fellows, its drawing near to 
"hockey weather." 





YES, the bowling season is on with 
a slam -bang -rush. LaDuque, of 
the Kodak Office quint, says that the 
lusty crash of the maples brings sweet 
music to the bowlers' ears — that is, if — 
they hit 'em right. 

The first five weeks of bowling shows 
some lofty averages. Servise, Kodak 
Park, leads the league with a 206.11 
average, while O'Neill of the Camera 
Works team jogs along close behind with 

Everybody is waiting to see the last 
four teams do some tall pinning very soon. 
Come on, boys, get busy! Knock those 
first division teams for two or three! 

Hinterleiter of the Camera Works, has 
high game to date — 246. Freisman, 
Premo team, has a 241 game. O'Neill, 
Camera Works, has three 234 games and 
one 233. Some pretty good hitting, 
don't you think.^ 

Premo started the season with some 
real bowling. They took three games 
from Folmer-Century and made a good 
showing against the championship Kodak 
Park team. And Sullivan wasn't in his 
real form either. 

The Camera Works team is considered 
the noisiest in the league. When Captain 
O'Neill gets working on all twelve cylin- 
ders, the others might just as well quit. 
O'Neill says that Kodak Park is going to 
be a badly fooled team before the season 
is half over. 

Stockmeister, Folmer-Century, has been 
accused by his team-mates of being a 
charter member of the Foresters. Yes, 
there are a number of others who seem 
to be right on the job when it comes to 
wood-chopping, Stockmeister. 

When the old ball just won't hit the 
groove or the seemingly good hit results 
in a split, think all you speak, but speak 
not all you think. 

Amey of the Kodak Office team re- 
marked the other day that it takes years 
of good bowling to get a reputation, but it 

only takes one bad loaded ball to lose it 
for you. And he's right, isn't he, 

There's no use talking and sputtering 
over a bad break from what appears to be 
a strike hit. Things are seldom what 
they seem. 

Kosel is the star hitter for the Hawk- 
Eyes this year, with an average of 188. 

How about sending a five-man team 
of the best bowlers in the Camera Bowling 
League to Buffalo to the National Tour- 
nament at the close of the bowling season, 
to show the world what Kodak can do on 
the alleys? Get together, you bowlers, 
talk it over. 


After a long, hard, grinding business 
day, it is rather jolly now and then 
to have an evening game of indoor base- 
ball. Baseball persons are such cheerful 
folks, and it is good fun trying your luck 
at the game, whether you are expert or 
not. After several days of practice, you'll 
find that your fielding and batting aver- 
ages will gradually assume the normal 
pace, and then you'll wonder how you 
ever stayed away so long from such a 
fascinating game. Perhaps it will be 
more interesting to some than the out- 
door variety of baseball; try it and see. 

Plans are being completed for a number 
of Indoor Teams throughout the different 
plants, and undoubtedly a real old-time 
Indoor League will be in operation before 
many days. The girls have taken up 
this branch of sport also; so if you can't 
make a go with one of the big teams, men, 
perhaps the girls' team will give you a 

For full particulars for an evening's 
fun, of last year's flavor, just ask a team 
member; you will probably be entertained 
for an hour and a half on the subject, 
"Indoor Baseball."

ROCHESTER is the INIecca towards 
which the photographic inventor 
turns. If anyone in the country has a 
new idea regarding photographic ap- 
paratus, optics or chemistry, he is ahiiost 
sure to present it to Rochester for 

In our own organization we have a 
large force engaged in research and 
experimental work, and more often than 
once in a while our Suggestion System 
brings to light a new idea; all of which 
accounts for a quiet but very busy row 
of offices in Building Six at State Street, 
wherein is housed our Patent Department. 

The Patent Department functions in a 
number of different ways. New ideas 
of every kind, improvements in cameras, 
lenses, film spools, carrying cases, tripods, 
developers, and papers are constantly 
coming to bright workers in our plants, 
as well as from the outside. 

Duplication of effort is a thing to be 
avoided; no one wants to waste a lot 
of time working out something that some- 
one else has already perfected, nor find 
out when a model is completed that there 
is a patent preventing its use by us. 

The Patent Department keeps in as 
close touch as is possible with these 
activities and ascertains just what has 
been done affecting these ideas. 

Among its various records the Patent 
Department has, properly classified, the 
patents relating to " all our products; 
and it is some file — and also carefully 
indexed files and catalogues of the photo- 
graphic concerns in many countries. 

The museum of the department con- 
tains models of all kinds of photographic 
apparatus which is in itself a fairly 
complete history of photography. There 

are also records of the numerous sugges- 
tions made by employees, and by our 
friends outside of the company. ^\Tien 
something new is deemed worthy of 
consideration, or a change in model or 
formula is suggested, a search is made 
by the department to find out if the 
idea is new, or if possibly there is already 
a patent preventing its use by us; also 
to ascertain whether or not a similar 
product has ever been marketed and 
its success. After all this information 
has been obtained a report is prepared 
showing just what has been done along 
similar lines, to assist the designer in 
working out the finished product, or 
to prevent him wasting his time over an 
idea controlled elsewhere. 

During the process of transforming 
idea into product, and its passing the 
merciless criticisms and severe tests 
demanded by our high standards, changes 
and improvements frequently alter the 
patent situation and so it is necessary 
for the Patent Department to keep in 
close touch with all development work. 

Sometimes even after all this care and 
thought the idea does not pan out and, 
if so. into the discard it goes. 

When the idea has passed all tests, 
and is ready for production, the depart- 
ment attends to the taking out of the 
necessary patents. After the idea child 
is born, it just naturally has to be chris- 
tened; many times the proper name is 
self evident, but again much thought 
must be given as to the best possible 
name. In such case the services of the 
Advertising Department are requisi- 
tioned; ]Mr. Jones, or "L. B.," as he is 
better kno^Ti, is usually prolific in ideas, 
but once in a while he finds himself 


stumped; if so, he calls a conference 
from all up and down the long row of 
offices which house his idea men and 
gently "passes the buck." 

After the name has been approved, 
the Patent Department again takes 
hold, and searches through its long list 
of trade marks used anywhere, any time, 

by anybody and everybody, for things 
photographic and so makes sure that 
the name finally adopted can be used 
with full rights and protection. 

^Nlany problems come to the Patent 
Department regarding patents, trade 
marks, and questions of copyright which 
are anything but simple to solve. 


DO you ever wish to consult directories 
of other cities; need help in filing cor- 
respondence, storing tools, writing letters, 
making out your inconife tax returns? 
Perhaps you would like to make a budget, 
save some money, take out a patent, im- 
prove your memory, become a better 
salesman or accountant, travel, be 

Tliie Business Library can help you. 
These questions have been answered for 
others through books and magazines, and 
your problem can be solved too. 

It has books for the employment and 
office managers, housekeepers, advertis- 
ing men, safety and industrial engineers, 
and executives. It is a special library that 
is collecting and circulating the literature 
of business and municipal government, 
named the Municipal and Business 
Branch of the Rochester Public Library, 
located at 13 South Fitzhugh Street in the 
Municipal Building. 

The Business Library idea is a develop- 
ment of some thirteen years past, and the 
municipal reference branch of more recent 
growth. The combination of these two 
types of libraries is still newer and as yet 
few cities have established them — the 
most notable examples being in Minne- 
apolis and Rochester. 

The Business Library has 3,000 volumes 
of books and receives regularly 150 maga- 
zines. Both books and periodicals are 
circulated to all who make application at 
the library. Here one can find encyclo- 
pedias, dictionaries in English and foreign 
languages, almanacs and year books giv- 

ing the latest statistical information, fede- 
ral, state and municipal government re- 
ports, city and business directories, time 
tables, postal guides, atlases, maps and 
trade catalogs of Rochester firms. 

There are both telephones at the Busi- 
ness Library, and you are invited to avail 
yourself of its resources through them, 
if you cannot come in person. Informa- 
tion is as carefully and cheerfully looked 
up for telephone requests as it is for those 
who make personal visits. Many people 
call concerning the subjects about which 
references are desired before starting for 
the Library, so that the material will be 
ready when they arrive. We will be glad 
to do this for you. 

Think Business Library when you want 
information about such subjects as these: 
Production, Employment Management, 
Accounting, Foreign Trade, Health Insur- 
ance, Taxation, Housing, Industrial Re- 
lations, Office Methods, Dyes and Dyeing, 
Advertising, House Decoration, Govern- 
ment, Character Analysis, Prices, Safety, 
Labor, Graphic Presentation, Success, 
Americanization, Finance, Gardening, 
Automobiles, or a good story. 

We will be glad to send our lists of 
books on these or any other subjects. 

Our hours are 9 A. M. to 6 P. M. daily 
except Sunday. Our telephone numbers 
are Stone 8345 and Main 4542. We are 
on the first floor of the Municipal Build- 
ing, 13 South Fitzhugh street, one block 
from "Four Corners." Come in and let 
us become acquainted. 




THE Eastman Savings and Loan Asso- 
ciation, our association — is now ready 
for, and doing business. 

Subscriptions are coming in in a most 
gratifying manner and we have yet to 
find an employee who is not absohitely 
sold on the proposition; you have a lot 
to gain and you can't possibly lose; so 
let's go to it. 

It is just about the most comfortable 
feeling there is, to know that you have a 
bit tucked away for showery weather, or 
that you are getting to own your own 
home, or that when your boy or girl is 
ready for college, that you have the 
money for the purpose ready and waiting. 

Get the thrift habit; it is one of the few 
that won't get you. 

Through our Association, the process 
of saving becomes almost automatic, par- 
ticularly with the Installment Shares. 
Your department head will be only too 
glad to supply you with a prospectus, and 
the necessary subscription forms. 

Do not for a single moment allow your 
interest or enthusiasm to cool — get in now 
and stay in. 

Just think what it will mean to you in a 
few years to come, and the years roll 
around right speedily; think of the 
satisfaction of owning the place you call 
home, when you can snap your fingers at 
landlords and moving days. Think of the 
satisfaction of being able to put John or 
Mary through school when the time 

Perhaps some day you may wish to go 
into business for yourself; the fact that 
you are a shareholder in a savings and 
loan association will help a lot in estab- 
lishing your business credit. 

Subscribe for as many shares as you 
possibly can; but if you feel that you can 
only put aside a small amount each month 
don't let that scare you out, you will be 
just as welcome as the largest share- 
holder; remember the Eastman Savings 
and Loan Association is i/oiir association. 

Study the prospectus thoughtfully. See 
how the Association can help you. 

If you want to build your own home, 
see how the housing plan will help you in 
selecting a house of the right type for 
your needs. 

Study the following table and see how 
easy it becomes to pay off a loan. 

All loans would be paid off in the same length of 
time, as the monthly installments are 1% of the 
mortgage. For example, the payments on a $2,400 
loan would be $-24: a month, and a $3,000 loan, $30 
a month.

If the borrower wishes to make payments in 
addition to his regular payments on a mortgage loan, 
they will be received at any time. Such payments 
will immediately be placed to his credit, thus re-

Friday evening, December 3rd, saw the 
New York State Armory transformed into 
a busy hive of Kodak activity, the occa- 
sion being the First Annual Kodak Em- 
ployees Entertainment and Dance. This 
affair, the first of its kind, was sponsored 
jointly by all the Kodak Athletic Asso- 
ciations and Recreation Clubs. Approxi- 
mately 2,500 members of the Kodak 
organization thronged through the 
armory doors. 

Damon's augmented orchestra fur- 
nished music of the perfect variety for the 
dancers, and many of the more ardent 
devotees of terpsichore regretted even 
the intermission, during which the three 
entertainment numbers were presented. 
These, however, were of high calibre. The 
first, a fantastic dancing act, under the 
title "Ouija Magic," was devised, cos- 
tumed, and directed by Florence Cole- 
brook Wetmore, and showed many of 
Rochester's most talented youthful dan- 
cers. Act Number Two was the "Renee 
Robert Revue," in "Miss Twinkle Toe 
and her Mates," while the final program 
number showed "Seven Honey Boys" in 
**A Bee-Hive Full of Honey.'' Each of 
these acts came direct from a big-time 
vaudeville circuit. 

Another source of satisfaction to the 
sponsoring organizations was the finan- 
cial success of their venture.

This is the slogan that has been adopted 
by the Bureau of Investigation of the 
Rochester Chamber of Commerce, which 
offers its services — free of charge — to anj' 
resident of Rochester whether a member 
of the Chamber or not. 

So many securities are being offered for 
sale in concerns which are of doubtful 
soundness, and so much money is being 
thrown away by the small investor, that 
steps have been taken by a number of 
organizations to inform the small in- 
vestor that he should be exceptionally 
careful in choosing his investments. 

An invitation is given all residents of 
Rochester to call to the attention of this 
Investigation Bureau at the Chamber, 
all investments offered to them by sales- 
men, by mail, or by advertising, so that 
the prospective investor may be given 
advice as to the soundness of the concern 
offering the securities. 

United States authorities estimate that 
$500,000,000, was thrown away in this 
country in 1919 by persons who invested 
in unsound corporations. 

Ask the Chamber. Ask your Banker. 
Ask our Legal Department before 

Ask any successful man for the secret 
of his success and almost without excep- 
tion the answer will be thrift and saviyig. 




FEW institutions have accomplished so 
great an amount of good in so short a 
time as has the Rochester Dental 

The Dispensary was founded and en- 
dowed through a realization of the fact 
that many of our common ills are directly 
traceable to defective teeth. 

The time to begin the correction of 
imperfect dentition is with the child, so 
as to afford him the soundest possible 
basis for good health. 

The Dispensary has done a splendid 
work since it has been in operation, and 
has relieved thousands of children in 
Rochester who, under other circumstances, 
would have gone unaided. 

Naturally the work of the Dispensary 
has had to be carried on under certain 
restrictions; children of families within 
a stipulated income only, being eligible 
for treatment. 

Circumstances have made it possible, 
through a special endowment by Mr. 
Eastman, to modify these restrictions so 
that the services of the Dispensary are 
now open to children of Kodak em- 
ployees residing in Rochester and its 
immediate vicinity. 

This is a very far-seeing plan and one 
making for better and happier future 
citizens of our city, and future employees 
of our company. 

If you have a child, or children, with 
imperfect or defective teeth, do not fail 
to take advantage of this splendid oppor- 
tunity for aiding them to become strong 
and healthy. 

The fees for treatment are very small 
(five cents for each visit), and bring this 
service within the reach of every 

Application blanks for Dispensary ser- 
vice may be obtained from department 
heads and the nurses in the plant dispen- 
saries. When the form is filled out, it 

should be placed in the envelope provided, 
and sent to the Industrial Relations 
Department, 343 State Street. 

A card of introduction to the Dispen- 
sary, giving time of appointment, will be 
sent the applicant; after receipt, the 
child, or children, should be taken to the 
Dispensary at the time stated. 

Do not overlook this opportunity — 
think what it means to vour children. 


The regular monthly meeting of this 
Association was held on Wednesday, De- 
cember 8th, at four o'clock in the after- 
noon. The Secretary reported that one 
loan of $500.00 had been closed since the 
last meeting. One application for a real 
estate loan of $1,200.00 was appro ved. 

The Treasurer, Mr. Gorham, submitted 
his report and Mr. Haight, Manager of 
the Industrial Relations Department, 
presented a report in regard to welfare 
cases on which action had been taken at 
previous meetings of the Board. 

The annual meeting of the Association 
will be held on Saturday evening, Janu- 
ary 15, lO^l. The Association fixed the 
Premo Works as the place for holding 
this meeting. 

Elections are now being held in the 
various plants to choose representatives 
on the Board of tiie Association. 

It's no use offering a reward for the 
return of a lost opportunity. Later on 
when your co-workers are drawing their 
quarterly dividends of their paid up in- 
stallment shares of the Eastman Savings 
and Loan Association, you'll wish that you 
had taken an early advantage of the best 
possible means to save and invest.

In the days of the hair-cloth sofa and 
the "what-not," with souvenirs from the 
Centennial on it, it was the custom to 
make New Year calls. 

All the families in town with marriage- 
able daughters kept open house on New 
Year's Day, and the less deadly sex 
responded nobly. 

Dressed "fit to kill" and armed with a 
stock of calling cards, and an appetite, 
the young men made the rounds until 
exhausted nature asserted herself. 

"The cold gray dawn of the morning 
after" undoubtedly had much to do with 
the making of New Year resolutions, 
which was also considered the proper 
thing to do at this period. 

We have advanced a bit since that 
period; we have learned the folly of plung- 
ing into an orgy of good resolutions at one 
fell swoop, soon finding that our spiritual 
digestive apparatus could not assimilate 

Still with most of us there is room for a 
few good resolutions and the i)eginning of 
a new year would seem to be a good time 
to put them into effect. 

We are not going to make any definite 
suggestions — you know your own fail- 
ings, so we will simply wish you, everyone, 
a most Happ3' and Prosperous New Year. 

In a recent issue of "System" magazine 
there appeared an interview with Mr. 
Eastman which offered an intimate 
glimpse into the development of our com- 
pany. This interview has been widely 
commented upon, and liere is one com- 
ment for you to tliink over. 

"One significant statement which he 
makes contains a lesson in a few words, 
which a column of our magazine could 
not make so impressive. 

"After deciding to go into photography 
as a business, he said 'Drawing $3,000.00 
that I had saved from my salary, I hired a 

"When the opportunity came, he was 
ready for it and his savings enabled him 
to grasp it" — "You press the button and 
a little ready money will often do the rest." 

If you have been undecided about sub- 
scribing for shares in our Savings and Loan 
Association, just read the foregoing over 
again, and let it sink in. 

If there is anything you do not fully 
understand regarding the plans of the 
Association, just phone Mr. Bartholomew, 
Kodak Office, and he will gladly inform 

One of our fellows commenting on the 
plan for payments on a home building 
loan, felt that it took quite a long time to 
complete. We asked him if he ever 
stopped to figure that he could pay rent 
on a house for twenty years, and then all 
he would have would be the rent receipts. 

If you have children we ask you to 
give most thoughtful consideration to the 
article on page 7 regarding the work of 
the Rochester Dental Dispensary and the 
advantages it affords. Do not neglect 
this splendid opportunity to give your 
children the best possible physical foun- 
dation, as it will mean so much to them 
later in life. 



"Soup-y, soup-y, soup, 
^Yithout a single bean; 

Pork-y, pork-y, pork. 
Without a strip of lean; 

Coffee, coffee, coffee. 
The weakest ever seen!" 

TWO years ago, to the 1,500 or so 
of us who were lucky enough to 
get into Uncle Sam's O. D., the shrill 
notes of that little ditty were often the 
most welcome blast the battered old 
bugle ever blew. And, how we did 
tumble into the old mess-hall for "slum" 
and "willie," or whatever else the K. P.'s 
were handing out. But, now that we're 

Kodak plants are no exception to this 
rule of progress, and now, almost every 
Kodak worker can, if he wants to, get 
his lunch without going outside the 

One of the smallest, but most attractive 
of the company dining-halls, is that at 
Premo. This room is also used as a 
meeting place for the Premo Club. 


back in "civics" it's no longer the bugle, 
but a hoarse noon whistle that tells 
us when it's time to "wander out after 
our nickel's worth of dog-meat." And, 
where do we go? 

Time was when the man or woman in 
industry had to "tote" his noon-day 
meal along with him when he left home 
in the morning, out of which custom 
grew one of our most picturesque cam- 
paign slogans — "The Full Dinner Pail." 
Today, however, the factory lunch-room 
is a fundamental of the up-to-date shop. 

Pictures and flags help to give the room 
a home-like appearance. On one side 
is a small stage which is used by the 
Premo Orchestra during its noon-hour 
concerts on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 
This club room is the center of interest 
for Premo workers, about I'io of whom 
remain at the i)lant for lunch. When 
this number is being served, the room is 
pretty well filled, for its maximum 
c-apacity doesn't run much over 135 at a 
sitting. To keep this dining-room in 
going order requires the entire services 




of three people with an extra helper for 
part of the day. While, of course, lunch 
is the only meal served regularly every 
day, there are frequent calls for an 
extra supper when there's overtime 
work to be done. These calls require, 
on an average, the preparation of about 
fifty meals a week. 

The Hawk-Eye system is different, 
with two separate dining-rooms — one 
for men and the other for women. There 
are four regulars on the food staff — a 
pastry cook, a meat cook, an assistant, 

and Charles Brown, the stew^ard. With 
the help of four extra girls at noon, they 
manage to take care of 200 people a 
day, and it takes them just 27 minutes 
to handle the crowd. Not so bad, eh.'* 
Haw^k-Eye, too, has the supper problem 
for overtime workers. Mr. Brown, the 
steward, is a concocter of novel ideas 
in the food line. For proof, just make 
some inquiries about his date-rhubarb, 
or fig-pineapple pies. 

New Building No. 9 at the Camera 
Works has a finely-equipped dining- 




room right on the first floor. Since the 
new building has been opened the dining- 
room on the fourtli floor of the old 
building has been converted into 
production departments. In the new 
room 8.50 people can l)e accommodated 
at one time. The average number of 
patrons is 1,-200 per day. It requires, 
of course, a considerable staft' to serve 
so many diners. Miss Crarer has the 
management of the Camera Works 
dining-room, and her right hand man 
is M. J. Pollenqiie, chef, whose past 
experience includes fourteen years at 
the Powers Hotel, and two years at the 
Waldorf-Astoria. If you don't believe 
he's a past master of the culinary craft, 
just drop in by way of the Piatt Street 
entrance some noon and try out his 
wares. One time will convince you. 
Fifteen people give their entire time to 
the maintenance of the Camera Works 
dining-room, while seventy others are 
required to assist at noon. 

Kodak Park, of course, with a young 

city all its own, has to have more elaborate 
and complete food facilities. Their din- 
ing halls come almost in the Mike Miller 
class in one respect, for they "never 
close" — except on Sunday. Four dining 
halls are now in operation with a seating 
capacity of about 3,200. A dining- room in 
Building -23 has recently been completed. 
The four dining halls now in use serve 
between 4,000 and 5,000 meals each day. 
All these are under the general charge of 
F. L. Grastorf, ^lanager. He is assisted 
by Miss Ruth Hardy as dietitian. 
Sixty-nine people put in full time on 
work connected with running the Kodak 
Park dining halls, and these sixty-nine 
are assisted by about one hundred extra 
girls at meal times. 

The Main Office and Folmer-Century 
Works are the only branches of the 
company which have not dining-rooms 
of their own. Main Office people have 
the privilege of using the Camera Works 
dining hall, while some of the girls 
prepare their noon meal in the third 





floor lunch room, where Mrs. Elrich 
reigns. Most of the Fohner-Century 
people can easily go home for lunch, 
while the others find it convenient to 
get eating facilities within a short distance 
from the plant. 

No great stretch of the imagination is 
necessary to realize that an enormous 
quantity of food is consumed each month 
in all these dining-rooms. In an average 
month the lunch rooms of these four 
plants, Kodak Park, Camera Works, 
Hawk-Eye and Premo, use over 26,000 
quarts of milk, almost 26,000 loaves of 

bread, better than eighteen tons of 
meat, and 1,048 bushels of potatoes. 
Then there's the pie record — not quite 
13,000 a month. And for beverages, 
we use 1,842 pounds of coffee and 
eighty-seven pounds of tea. Even with 
sugar as hard to get as it has, been, Kodak 
consumption reaches a monthly average 
of almost five tons. 

All in all, it sort of sets a record for 
the Childs, Automat, Waldorf, Baltimore, 
and such-like systems to shoot at, doesn't 


"It so happens in this world that a great 
many people have had ideas, knowledge 
of how to do things and a possibility to 
do, but they have not taken action. They 
have thought of schemes; have worked 
out plans, roughly; have considered that 
this or that was the way to accomplish 
certain things; but they have not tried 
them out. They have put them off until 
tomorrow. A great element in any 
success, therefore, is the doing of that 

thing promptly which seems to be worth 
while. Some of the things carried out 
will prove successful, others may not; 
but the very doing of them will suggest 
better schemes, will animate everybody 
around to make suggestions and to do 
things. It is not enough to think that a 
thing ought to be done; the thinking is 
only valuable when the thing is done. 
Turn your thoughts into action." —

CASH AWARDS: $50.00, $-2,5.00, $1.>.00. $10.00 

AT the time this is being written, the 
L. entries for our Second Quarterly 
Amateur Photograjihic- Competition are 
coming in in highly gratifying numbers. 

The names of the prize winners and the 
winning pictures will be published in the 
February number. 

We have not been surprised at the 
number of amateur photographers in the 
employ of the company that these 
contests have disclosed, but we have 
been pleasantly surprised at the number 
of truly artistic workers in our ranks. 

We feel these competitions are doing 
a good work; they not only stimulate a 
friendly rivalry between the contestants, 
but do much to increase the love for, and 
the understandingof, the artistic by show- 
ing us what the other fellows are doing. 

The Third Quarterly Amateur Photo- 
graphic Competition for Kodak employees 
will begin February 1st, and close April 
30th. The awards will be the same as for 
the previous contests; First Award $50.00, 
Second Award $'25.00, Third Award 
$15.00, Fourth Award $10.00. 

Subjects : Snow Scenes, Winter Sports, 
Still Life Pictures. 


These competitions will be open to all 
employees of the Eastman Kodak Com- 
pany, excej)t demonstrators, those who 
have been professional photographers, and 
those, the nature of whose employment 
with the coni])any would class them as 
professional photograi)hers. 

The exposures must be the work of the 
contestant, but the develoijing and print- 
ing can be done by someone else. 

The negatives of the prize- winning 
prints shall become the proj^erty of the 
Eastman Kodak Company, and the 
negatives delivered to the Editor of the 
Kodak Magazine before the awards are 
paid. Prints from such negatives will be 
used in the Kodak Magazine, for advertis- 
ing or sam|)le print purposes, or for any 
other purpose the company may elect. All 

prints must be mounted but not framed. 

The name and address of the contestant 
and the designation of the camera used 
must be legibly written on the back of 
each print. Contestants who are awarded 
prizes for photographs which include a 
person or persons must furnish to us the 
written consent of the subject or subjects 
(in case of a minor, the written consent of 
a parent or guardian) to the use of the 
picture in such manner as we may see fit. 

Blanks for this purpose will be supplied 
by the Editor upon request. 

Contestants may enter any number of 
prints, either contact prints or enlarge- 
ments (but no contestant will be awarded 
more than one prize), and send them in at 
different times, up to the closing date of 
each competition. Prints submitted will 
not be returned unless specially rec{uested. 

The package containing prints should 
be addressed: 

Photographic Competition, 
kodak magazine, 

eastman kodak company, 
state street office. 


If you are the owner of any tempo- 
rary Liberty Bonds which you have not 
yet exchanged for permanent bonds, it's 
time to get busy. After the due date of 
the last coupon on your present bonds, 
you will be unable to collect your inter- 
est until you have obtained your per- 
manent bonds with all the remaining 
coupons attached. 

The banks are now ready to accept 
for exchange, temjiorary bonds of all 
issues except lionds of the Fourth Lib- 
erty Loan. Bonds of the Fourth Loan 
will be accepted for exchange on and 
after February 1st. If you bought 
your bond through the company, the 
Security Trust Company is the proper 
place for you to exchange them. 

And — remember I There's no time 
like the present. 





ALL good little boys and girls — there 
^ are no really, truly bad little boys 
and girls — want to do everything they 
can to help their fathers and mothers. 

Of course 3^011 run errands cheerfully, are 
careful not to track snow and mud into 
the house, and keep your face and hands 

Now all this helps father and mother a 
lot, but there is still another way that per- 
haps you have not thought of that will 
also help a lot. 

You see it is like this. Both father and 
mother have cautioned you about play- 
ing with matches, have asked you not to 
meddle with bottles in the medicine 
chest, because some of them might con- 
tain poison, and have told you over and 
over again to be careful when crossing 
streets, and to look both ways before you 
cross so you won't get bumped by a 
"flivver" or a trolley car. 

Now if father has to go to his work in 
the morning, and during the day wonders 
if you are going to do some careless thing 
that will hurt you, he will worry about it, 
and when a man is worried he just cannot 
do good work; and if every time mother 
sees you leave the house, she has to stand 

in the door to see that you cross the street 
carefully, and then goes in and worries 
because you are "so thoughtless," she 
cannot do good work either. 

So you see you can help father and 
mother a lot by being careful, and think- 
ing and acting Safety First all the time. 

We want every Kodak boy and girl to 
begin right away thinking about safety. 

To niake it worth your while, and to 
keep you thinking about it, we are going 
to offer a prize of five dollars to any boy 
or girl under the age of fifteen years, 
whose father or mother is employed by the 
company, for the best essay on safety; 
there will also be awards for the nine next 
best essays (a splendid safety game which 
all the family can enjoy). 

The essays must not exceed five hun- 
dred words in length and must be sent 
in to the Editor of the Kodak Magazine 
on or before February fifteenth. 

The i>rize-winning essay will be pub- 
lished in the Magazine in the March 

Now isn't this a pleasant way to help 
father and mother and yourself? So 
sharpen up your pencils and get busy. 


ONE of the fellows came into our office 
the other day, slammed himself down 
into a chair and announced that he was 
disgusted with everything. He said that 
everything that he had tackled for a week 
or more had gone wrong in spite of every- 
thing he could do. 

We have felt the same way on occa- 
sions, but when you come to think of it, 
not one of us can hit the bull's eye 
every time. 

There used to be a chap who sat in a 
chair under the New York Central Bridge 
on State Street; he didn't have any legs, 
and made his livelihood by turning the 
handle of a small wheezy barrel organ. 
More pennies than nickels, and none too 

many of either, were dropped into the tin 
cup on the top of the little organ, yet he 
was always cheerful. When anyone made 
a contribution, he was rewarded with a 
smile and a hearty "thank you." The 
little organ and its owner have been 
absent for a good long time now, but his 
memory as a gloom chaser still lingers in 
our minds. 

When you get the blues, or feel that you 
made an everlasting chump of yourself, 
you can, if you stop to think a moment, 
find someone a whole lot worse off than 
yourself, so "pack up your troubles" and 
dig in and you'll soon see the sun shining

On January 28, 1921, the Kodak Office Recreation 
Club will resume its winter schedule of dances. The 
two which have taken place to date have been live 
parties and well attended by the members. 

On both occasions, special features were arranged 
for the amusement of those who are not so fond of 
dancing. At the last party, Marie Mat tern of the 
.Service Department sang several solos and Florence 
Wright of the Order Department gave a solo dance. 

Harry Seaman, that notable caterer whose talent 
was discovered on the first K. O. R. C. Outing, as- 
sisted by a number of eleventh floor beauties, had 
charge of the refreshments, and needless to say, 
they were par excellence. 

The music was peppy; the floor was fine. What 
more could one ask for a dollar and a dime.^ 

Be out for the next dance. It's going to be better 

than ever. 


The company paid $1200 more during the year of 
1920 for suggestions made by employees of Kodak 
Office than was paid in 1919. We are ready to pay 
even a bigger amount in 1921. AVe want you to get 
your share. Make a worthwhile New Year's reso- 
lution — "One Suggestion a Montli." They benefit 
you as well as the company. 

Look over the list of awards in the Suggestion 
Bulletins. Notice the type of suggestions that are 
being adopted, and don't give up if at first you don't 

During the past year one of our Stock House em- 
ployees entered twelve suggestions, all of which were 
found to be impractical for adoption. Nevertheless, 
he tried again and thirteen was his lucky number. 
This suggestion was adopted and we are sure that he 
agrees with us that he was well repaid by the one 
award for the time that he spent in developing the 
first twelve suggestions. 

One thing more — the location of the Suggestion 
Office has been changed. It is now on the fourth 
floor in the Industrial Relations Department. Come 
in and see us. We .shall be glad to talk over your 
ideas with vou at anv time. 

Have you heard the rap-tap-tap of the hammers 
on the thirteenth floor.' Well, new offices have been 
made, and the remaining people are going to wel- 
come the Statistical Department, formerly on the 
sixteenth floor. 

Goodness, the Auditing Department does look so 
diflferent. A great transformation has taken place. 
The Tabulating Department was transferred to the 
ninth floor. 


Back in the dark ages of 1919, when the Kodak 
Office Recreation Club was but a dream, the air 
was rife with reports about the Kodak Park Basket- 
ball teams, the Camera Works Girls' teams and 
the Folmer-Century Bowling League. And all the 
time Kodak Office people were saying "Why doesn't 
the Main Office ever have anj-thing like that.'" 

But different days have come. The company's 
dollar-for-dollar appropriation has made possible 
the Kodak Office Recreation Club, and this organ- 
ization is now supporting bowling leagues and basket- 
ball teams for both men and girls. The bowling 
leagues are attracting widespread interest and 
going very successfully. Not so with basketball, 
however. The apathy shown by those who should 
be supporting our teams is deplorable. 

We have one of the best industrial teams in the 
city — a team which has turned in two victories out 
of three games. But out of these three games the 
total attendance of Kodak Office people has been 
less than 200. At the last game, in which our boys 
neatly trimmed the Rochester Stamping Company, 
exactly 34 of our 1,200 theoretical supporters saw 
the game, less than 3'~f. In the face of such in- 
terest, prospects for the completion of the season 
are extremely dark. 

An attempt is being made to secure the Masonic 
Temple for future games which will be arranged 
with such fast aggregations as Todds, Perintons of 
East Rochester, Fashion Park, Bastian Brothers, 
Cunninghams, Seldens, and the American Laundry 
Machinery Company — in addition to return games 
with Hawk-Eye and Rochester Stamping Company . 

For a four bits admission price, you get: 

1. A rattling girls' preliminary (always a barrel 
of fim). 

2. Forty minutes of snappy basketball between 
two speedy men's teams. 

3. Two hours of dancing with the best music the 
city can afford. 

All on a splendid court in the best location in the 

If you have any doubt about your money's worth. 
try it out just once — you will be converted. 

What do vou sav — are vou with us.' 

The Sales Department is very proud of its seven 
candidates out for the Girls' Basketball Team. Even 
though they lost their first game, their spirits are 
still high and they are counting on getting even with 
the Hawk-Eye team in the near future. Come on 
out and root for our girls! 



President, K. O. R. C. Bowling League 


There is a very pretty race going on for the va- 
rious positions in the league. Each week sees several 
changes in the standing with the result that, as we 
wind up the first half of the schedule, it is anybody's 
race and rivalry is keen. 

Each of the various captains has it all figured out 
as to just why the championship will belong to his 
department. Here are a few of the reasons given: 

Captain Dave Solmes of Stock admits that his 
team, while not in first place now, has only been 
kept out by the hardest kind of luck. Frank Peart, 
after rolling five games like a "'champ" was carted 
away to the hospital. He is now back and ready to 
knock 'em dead along with Walter Capel, Elwood 
Dunn and the other regulars. 

The Sales Department, having for its spokes- 
man no less a personage than Captain Jack Gun- 
derson, bleats as follows, "We are where all champi- 
ons like to be at this stage of the race, — third place. 
Any time we feel the time is ripe, that old number 
one position will be ours. With such gunners as 
Ferris, Strowger, Hodgson, Mason, Fisher, Seaman, 
Quinlan and Batchelder there is nothing to it, noth- 
ing to it." 

Captains Gordier of Accounting and Schug of 
Bookkeeping meet quite often and Jack must try 
once more to figure out just how it happened that 
the l^th floor gang could win two out of three. He 
admits that Ray Hyde is the best dressed bowler in 
the league, "Herb" Rayten the most plump, and Kron 
a tj-pical south-paw. With these boys ably assisted 
by Harry Thomas, Henry Finger, Jack Leysenaar 
and Herman (Sewerj Bakker it is hard to believe 

they would ever be on the short end. Schug merely 
points to his list consisting of Biekirck, Carrell, King, 
Junker, Ushold, etc., and says more than we can 

Bill Carter wlio guides the Maintenance team can't 
put on any fat these days. He was never so busy 
in his life. The trouble is due to the fact that, while 
a team consists of five men. Bill has forty regulars 
and several subs who want to roll each week. 

Captain Coan insists that the Engraving Depart- 
ment team be known as the "League of Nations," it 
consisting of an Irishman, German, Englishman, 
Hebrew, and a Bonny Scot. They should produce 
something before the season ends. 

The Service Department is now leading the League 
and from the angle where Captain John Berl sits 
that is the one and only place to be. "Just look at 
them," says Johnny, "why man, we have more 
class here than any two teams put together. To 
cover the good points and give each man his just 
reward we could fill a whole edition of the Maga- 

Captain VanDusen is rapidly gettinghis men where 
he wants them. At present Joe Kick is the only man 
who is always expected to toss them for two hundred. 
Tutty's graceful delivery is wonderful to behold and 
the others are gradually coming to the point where 
every match means three straight. 

When asked how Domestic Shipping was making 
the grade, Captain Jack Schoenwitz took one back- 
ward step and burst forth in poetry. Would that 
we could give it to the world but space is limited. 
However here is the last line, "With vim an' pep — • 
Oh Boy, — Victory." Do you wonder those boys are 
up at the top and going strong.^ 

The Advertising bimch is not a bit discouraged 
and expects to win a lot of games now that McCarthy 
has joined their forces. Captain Stillson claims there 
was only one weak spot and "Mac" fills that. All the 
regulars are improving and some regular he-man 
scores coming in. 

Export Shipping, which is guided by our genial 
secretary, has been doing great things and is rest- 
ing easy for the time being. With such men as Cap- 
tain La^^Tence, Xeufeglise, Harding, Wagner, Udart, 
Beldue, Butler and Ernisse to draw from, they are 
always dangerous. 

Captain "Scoop"Cooley of the Industrial Relations 
finds it easy to smile these days. Looks like a regu- 
lar team now and the boys are out to make up for 
lost time. When Ijooked to meet this bunch, oppos- 
ing captains had better bring out their best stickers. 
They are dangerous.

Tlie Kodak Office Girls' Basketball team made its 
first appearance on a piihlic court Tuesday evening, 
December 7th, in a preliminary game with theHawk- 
Eye girls. Although Kodak Office girls lost by a 
14-4 score, they made a fine showing considering that 
only two j)ractices were held previous to the game. 
The team has plenty of good enthusiastic material 
and should, with a few practices, improve into a 
good, live team. 

Helen Gentry of the Sales Department, captain 
of the Kodak Office team, was the star player 
and, although she was held to one basket, did 
splendid work in capturing the ball and keeping it 
at their end of the hall. Ruth Kimmel, of the Steno- 
graphic & Training Dejiartment, scored the other 
basket for Kodak Office and played a good game as 

The Hawk-Eye girls jilayed a clean-cut game, flis- 
playing fine team and pass work. Tlieir line-up was 
as follows: Ethel Reinhardt, Jane DeGraff, Alice 
Gears, Elizabeth Meerdink, Grace Weimer, Virginia 
Earl, Harriett Batzing, Olive Kellett, Loretta Ereth, 
and Wilhelmina Maier. 

The Kodak Office team was composed of these 
girls: Helen Gentry, Anna Darcy, Ruth Kimmel, 
Annabel Hazell, Clara Efford, Ruth Sullivan, ]Mil- 
dred Lambert, Margaret Massing and IsabelleKoch. 

Aurelia Hillman is a newcomer to the IGth Floor 
where she is working for Mr. Holmes of the Planning 
Department. Miss Hillman is a graduate of the 
University of Rochester. Before coming to work for 
the company, she was Secretary to the District 
Director of the Interchurch Movement. We are 
glad to have Miss Hillman with us and wish her all 
success in her new work. 

On Saturday, December 4th, 1920, "Pop" Durfee, 
foreman of the Testing and Packing Department, 
was pleasantly remembered by the employees of the 
department, it being the occasion of his birthday. 

I'pon his desk had been placed a choice bouquet

Coach, Kodak Office Basketball Team 


On Tuesday, December 7th, with Manager Fred 
J. Fogarty handling the reins, the Kodak Office bas- 
ketball team defeated the crack Hawk-Eye Outfit 
18-17. This, no doubt, was the most exciting game 
between any of the plants in recent years, espe- 
cially the first half which ended with a score of 5 to 3, 
the State Street athletes having the long end. The 
close guarding of our boys was the feature of the 
game. The second half was nip and tuck; first the 
St. Paul Street aggregation would lead by a point and 
then a few .seconds later our lads would forge to the 
front. In fact it was nobody's game until the last 
few seconds of play when McNeil, Culbertson and 
Scoffield staged a wonderful piece of pass work, and 
several "sieves" placed the Fogarty pets in the lead 
when the whistle blew. Toddy Diehl, our star base- 
ball pitcher, amazed the crowd by his speedy floor 
work. Clark, Ilaig and Stutz displayed clever head 
work and the ability of these boys in forcing the 
leather up and do^\ii the court was conunendable. 
The crowd was made up mo.stly of fans from both 
plants and the cheering was terrific when their fa- 
vorites scored. 

Jones, Peterson and Johnson scored for the vis- 

These are good games. Come out and sui)port 
your team, and besides, there is dancing afterwards. 

The mail department is glad to see Miss Nolan 
after her vacation. Everyone missed her. 

The great trouble with the school of experience 
is that the course is so long that the graduates are 
too old to go to work. 




Edith Kate Reid received a hearty welcome from 
the Testing and Packing Department upon her safe 
retm-n November '29, 19'20, after an absence of thir- 
teen months, during which time she had been em- 
ployed by Kodak Ltd., London, England. 

She reports a stormy pas.sage. but does not share 
the popular superstition regarding thirteen and the 
sixth day of the week. 

Miss Reid entered the employ of the Eastman 
Kodak Company immediately upon her arrival in 
this country, Friday, June 13th, 1913, coming 
directly to our city, and has been continuously 
employed in the Testing and Packing Department, 
until she went for a return visit last year to her old 
home in London. 

Because of her continued interest in the work and 
further experience gained abroad, we are plea.sed to 
report her promotion to a clerkship in the Repair 

A few months ago I had a very serious operation 
and was in the hospital several weeks. I want to 
thank the Eastman Kodak Company for giving me 
the services of such excellent doctors as Dr. Sawyer 
and Dr. Fitch. I also want to thank all of the nurses 
connected with the company for their kindness dur- 
ing my convalescence; also, the Welfare League of 
the Shipping Department for the smokes, fruit and 
flowers. Every one has been so kind and good to me 
that I must say it is a great pleasure to be connected 
with such a company. 

Yoiu-s truly,

Shipping Dept., Main Office. 


At least nine girls from the eleventh floor can testi- 
fy that Pauline Lighthouse Semple's husband will 
never go hungry — for didn't they sup with Pauline, 
Wednesday, December 1st, and have the best things 
to eat.^ While the food was the main attraction, it 
was by no means the only one. Esther Dawson 
gave some exhibition dances. Mary Troy moved all 
to tears with her masterful rendition of the"Suwanee 
River" on the banjo anrl Kathryn Lamphere gave 
an illustrated lectureon the "ups and do\^^lsof horse- 
back riding." Of course they all had a good time, 
with wonderful food and such an assemblage of 
talent — besides it was at Pauline's; who wouldn't.^

LOST: On the 11th floor a short time ago, one 
dependable girl, by name Pauline Lighthouse. It is 
understood that Frank Semple can give information 
concerning her whereabouts. She was last seen at 
a luncheon and kitchen shower given by some of 
her friends. She will be most missed by the out- 
going mail department, which gave her a sausage 
roast and on that occasion presented her with a pin. 
She was also given a tablecloth bj- her co-workers on 
the 11th floor. 

A very pleasant half hour was spent Friday after- 
noon, November 19th, when all women employees of 
Kodak Oflfice of ten years or more service gathered 
together to meet Mrs. Armstrong, whose talk on a 
future "Good Fellowship Club" proved most inter- 
esting. We want to hear more about this and are 
looking forward to future meetings of the kind. 

Frank Foskett has purchased a new home at 69

Luella Thompson has been with the company 
for thirty-one years. She has been very faithful

On November twenty-third. Comptroller Speth 
started on a business trip to Europe to be absent for 
an indefinite time. 

The Kodak Office people extend a hearty welcome 
to Frank M. Page, formerly Office Manager of the 
Camera Works. Mr. Page is now General Cost 
Supervisor of the camera factories. 

Clara Schulz has just moved into her new home 
on Arnett Boulevard. 

Ethel Bailey has been transferred from the 15th

We all regret the illness of little Helen Haskins 
and wish her a speedy recovery. 

Genaro S. Rodriguez and Carlos Castillo of New 
York City are newcomers to our Export Depart- 
ment in the capacity of correspondents. 

Margaret Scheuring is engaged to Mr. Leo .\.

Another diamond ring. This time it announces 
the engagement of our "Billie"Burke to Mr. Allan 
B. Rice of Rochester. Every member of the Sales 
force loves Billie and we consider Mr. Rice a very 
lucky man. We wish them lots and lots of happiness. 

Jennie Klein, we miss you. When are you coming 
back to us.^ Jennie is away on leave of absence, 
owing to ill health and we wish her a speedy recovery. 

Cora Hettinger of the Finishing Department be- 
came the bride of Frederick Hammer December 11. 
1920. Cora certainly made the Sixth Floor people 
sit up when she told the news. We all thought she 
would be married before long, but never thought it 
would be so soon. 

Belle White of the Testing and Packing Depart- 
ment is in the Hahnemann Hospital having success- 
fully undergone a rather serious operation. She has 
been made happy by kind messages and gifts of 
flowers sent her from the department, and her con- 
tinued improvement is now looked for. 

We are glad to welcome a new employee of the 
Testing and Packing Department, Hazel E. Wood. 

Marion Francisco of the Domestic Parcel Post 
Department and Fred Nelson of the Export Parcel 
Post surprised their many friends by their marriage 
Monday afternoon, November 15, 1920, at Fairport. 
They are busy receiving congratulations and best

Frank C. Peart of the Kodak Stock Department, 
who was confined in the General Hospital on ac- 
coimt of an operation last month, wishes to thank 
Miss Pohl, Miss Koch and Mrs. Ziers for fruit, flow- 
ers, and candy, also Messrs. Tallinger, Groat, Slade, 
Hayes, Deyoung, and the Angels of Mercy, for 
cigars, all of which were greatly appreciated. 





Yes, the Kodak Office men licked Hawk-Eye on De- 
cember 7th (18-17), but we maintain that it was one 
of those games in which the final whistle picked the 
winner. Now if we had had a minute more in which 
to sneak in one basket from the field — . 

Captain Benny Levine and Doyle Rosenthal, 
playing in whirlwind style, certainly kept the Office 
score down where it should have spelled victory for 
us, but our offense seemed to lack something. 

On the other hip, can you imagine a couple of 
guards holding Ligleby, Jones and Peterson to an 
average of about one basket apiece.^ 

Speaking of the redoubtable "Pete," it takes a 
strong man to last through a game against him. 
His first Office opponent did not. 

"Cliff" Johnson contributed three pretty shots that 
were as wine to the thirstv Hawk-Evetes and at the 

same time gave evidence of a guarding ability and 
general sticktuitiveness that were most annoying to 
his adversary. 

It was a great game, so fast that the spectators 
were as near heart failure as the players. 


The Hawk-Eye Foremen's Club held its monthly 
meeting in the Hawk-Eye Dining Room on Friday 
evening, December 10th. The members brought their 
wives and sweethearts as guests. A pedro party fur- 
nished the entertainment, and prizes were won by 
Frank Fink, Foreman, Tool Department; Eugene 
Easterly, Production Department; Harry Althoff, 
Stock Department; Mrs. Groh; Mrs. Page and Mrs. 
Peiffer. James Watts, Chairman of the Committee, 
is entitled to much credit for the success of the party.

Stanley Sharpe is preparing to visit liis parents in 
England. We wish him a very enj()yal)le trip. (Hope 
your social duties will leave you enough time to

Wanted: A universal joint, guaranteed to be 
manufactured in 1914, to be used in repairing baby 
grand (vest-pocket Packard), of the same vintage! of such a relic please communicate with 
August Casper, Drafting Department. 

Margaret J. Finnigan of the Cementing Depart- 
ment has left for Brockport, accompanied by our 
sincere good wishes. Incidentally, she has changed 
her name to Mrs. J. Cottom, having been married 
on October 21st. She will make her home in that 
pleasant town. 

The stork has visited the home of Charles Good- 
rich of the Achromat Lens Department and pre- 
sented him with an eight-pound girl. Congratula- 

Hawk-Eye extends its sincerest expressions of 
sympathy to Edward and Martha Sellmayer in the 
recent loss of their sister. 

Charles Dulielbeiss of the Moulding Department 
left us on October 'iiJth for reasons unknown and for 
parts unknown. Report says that he has turned 
up in Detroit on his honeymoon. In other words, 
he resigned here because he had been accepted for 
a more important position. 

Wayne Mead of the Moulding Department has 
left town for Kushford, X. Y., where he intends to 
spend the winter. Judging from the fact that he will 
live on a farm, we should say that he probably won't 
spend anything else. 

Lewis Corke and Ernest Eaesling have joined the 
Second ^Marine Company, Naval Reserve. Since 
then they have been discovered executing peculiar 
manoeuvers reminiscent of setting-up exercises and 
mumbling certain phrases that remind one of the 
manual of arms. We mention this so that their 
strange conduct may not be misunderstood by their 
fellow-workers in the Anastigmat Lens Department. 

Berton Patterson of the Drafting Department is 
trying to sell his barge. It is said that he has 
promised to buy a pleasiu-e boat the next time. 
Wonder whether some member of the fair sex ob- 
jected to tlie riding qualities of the craft and thus 
influenced him to put it on sale.

Bill Schlegel's stars have apparently learned the 
valuable lesson that business and pleasure should 
be taken in equal doses to be effective. For instance 
on December 4th they practiced against the Ritter 
girls from five imtil seven and anyone who has seen 
them at the game called basketball will admit that 
they go about it in a business-like manner. As an 
antidote they went over to the Temple Theater. 
Jane DeGraff seemed to derive more enjoyment 
from the performance than anyone else for she un- 
covered a most surprising variety of chortles and 
caused more amusement than some of Mr. Finn's 
professional offerings. 

On December 11th the girls, after a strenuous 
session at the Stratford Rink, held a business meet- 
ing and elected Alice Gears as captain. Apparently 
viewing two hours of basketball as work they made 
their way to the Grand Central Alleys and bowled 
for three hours more for recreation. In the prelim- 
inary game Billy W^ilson amassed a grand total of 
14 pins, and seemed to be headed for the cellar. In 
subsequent frames, however, she rallied surprisingly 
until she was almost within reach of the first prize, 
when she slumped again and relinquished that honor 
to Billy Maier. The latter rolled 128, while Olive 
Kellett won second place with 8G. Ruth Kiu-tz 
copped the clay incense-man with the imposing score 
of 18. 

handling and teaching the girls, and besides she is 
a regular good fellow. We hope that another season 
will see her still with us. 

Jane DeGraft' played a wonderful game at guard 
wliich, however, is nothing out of the ordinary for 

Ethel Reinhardt, Elizabeth Meerdink and Loretta 
Ereth, all of them baseball players, were right there 
every minute. They play basketball to keep in con- 
dition for baseball, and vice versa. It is said that 
all three have a "V" for their middle initial. WTiich 
must stand for "versatility." 

Grace W'iemer pulled off a shot from the center 
of the floor that was a hair-raiser. Among other out- 
standing features we should say that the girl has a 
nice eye. 

Harriet Batzing and Olive Kellett, former High 
School stars, are coming along like old timers — and, 
ladies, when we say "old timers" we mean to insinu- 
ate nothing about your ages. 

Virginia Earl is getting to be awfully tight-fisted 
from running the pay-roll department. The Ofiice 
foimd that it was a hopeless job to pry even a ball 
away from her. 

Alice Gears, by sifting in three field baskets, ac- 
counted for only a third of the points scored in the 
game. She has been feeling very low ever since be- 
cause of her poor showing as she had three chances 
to score. Her batting average was only 1,000. 

"Bill" Schlegel, famous coach of the girls' teams, 
celebrated November 13, which was said to be his 
eighteenth birthday. (He is the only coach we know 
who is of the same age as his protegees.) The 
baseball girls woke up about a week later and stormed 
his home on November 20th, the chief objects 
being to commemorate said birthday, present an 
elegant silk shirt to Bill and annex some delicate 

Coach, Hawk-Eye Girls' Basketball Team 

The girls' basketball game with the Kodak Office 
on Tuesday, December 7th, demonstrates clearly 
what the able leadership of Billy Maier is doing for 
Hawk-Eye. This former member of McCarthy's 
All-Stars is in a class by herself when it comes to 


Not so long ago the Dresden Hotel was the scene 
of a pig roast and bowling party attended by thirty 
members of the third and fourth floor lens depart- 
ments. Fred Lutz, Hank Meinhardt and several 
other well-knowTi scrappers led the attack on the 
unfortunate pig. Their calls for ammmiition were 
so loud and frequent that the other members of the 
party became suspicious. Investigation established 
beyond a shadow of doubt that these leaders had 
fasted for a week in order that they might do justice 
to the event, as well as cut the H. C. of L. 

After the eats the boys waddled over to the alleys 
where the Has Beens, led by "Speedy" Witz and the 
Never Weres, under Art Abel, propelled the wooden 
Ijall. Had there been any prizes they would un- 
doubtedly have gone to Hank Meinhardt, whose 
sewer-rolling was easily the feature of the evening. 
So consistent was he at this trick that the other side 
won all of the three games. 

Before the party broke up several of the members 
entertained with solos. 

Another party is being planned for this month, with 
"Speedy" Witz as general chairman. Suggestions 
as to the nature of the blow-out will be welcome. 

It is the courage of a man, the faith of a man 
and the strength of his spirit that controls his life, 
not the wages he earns. 



If Fred Altnian of the Scientific Department 
does not have better luck cultivating his voice than 
he did cultivating potatoes last summer we fear that 
he will develop nothing more than a sore throat. 

Manager, Hawk-Eye Men's Basketball Team 


The Hawk-Eye Orchestra, which has been resting 
on its laurels since last spring, is now in a fair way 
of being revived for another successful season. 
Among the veterans of last year whom we may ex- 
pect to hear again are Louis Ehrmann and George 
Salzer, the eminent saxophone artists. ]\Iike Zimin- 
ski is tickling his French horn nightly, in order to 
get in shape for the opening performances. Harold 
Groh and Leonard Reynolds are feverishly engaged 
in their fiddle exercises and are averaging one new 
bow per evening. 

In addition to those fixed stars other promising 
candidates are showing unmistakable signs of life. 
< arl Fischer has recently purchased a brand new 
shiny saxophone and Al Hardies has done likewise. 
Looks like a saxoplume (|uartctte this year, boys! 
Lindsay Sondheim was seen emerging from a music 
store with a banjo-mandolin tucked under his wing, 
which probably means that a little more jazz will 
be injected into the organization. In addition AVood- 
ams has a new acquisition in his department who is 
])lanninga violent assault on the j)iano. His night 
attacks have already created a furt)re in his neigh- 
borhood with the result that tlie ])olice, as well as 
the Board of Health, have requested him to leave 
town and move to Pikes Peak, where he won't be 
iible to keep anybody awake except the echoes. 

Naturally the degree of success that the orchestra 
will acliieve depends ujjon the amount of support 
given it by both factory and oflficc. Therefore every 
owner of a musical instrument, whether man or 
woman, expert or beginner, tromlionist or jew's- 
harpist, is urged to register as such with his or her 
foreman or with the Personnel Department. 


The Second Annual Frolic of the Hawk-Eye girls 
will be given on the evening of February 5th at the 
Y. W. C. A., under the auspices of the Athletic 
Association. All those who were present at last 
year's party will attest to the success of the affair 
and it is planned to make it even more interesting 
this year. "Billy" Wilson has refused to divulge any 
of the particulars but it is known that there will be 
a number of novel stunts, as well as eats, and the 
fact that the whole affair will be run off under Miss 
Wilson's able guidance is enough to stamp it as suc- 
cessful beforehand. 


Tlie Pitch Button Department ushered in the 
Christmas month with a Baby Party, given in the 
dining room on December first. Short dresses and 
hanging hair were the tickets of admittance, and 
needless to state the effect was very good — in fact, 
to use the words of one of the participants, they were 
"some babies." Miss Drummond headed the list, 
dispensing pep in unending supply. The high spot 
of the evening was the supper, which every one 
agreed touched the well-known spot, especially Mr. 
Brown's steaming coffee. After supper the babies 
played games suited to their age and sang songs, 
topping off the party with "Till We Meet Again." 

The girls of the department are planning other 
festivities, to take place at intervals through the 
winter and spring. 

Foreman, Wood Department 







On Saturday evening. Decenil)er 18tli, Building 
No. 29 turned out in full force at an elaborate din- 
ner, to do honor to Fred B. Van Allan and George 
Beedham, on the occasion of the completion of 
twenty-five years continuous service with the 
Eastman Kodak Company. 

The banquet was held in the Assembly Hall and 
was attended by three hundred and fifty friends of 
the two guests of honor. Both men have been 
pioneers in the Film Coating, entering this end of the 
manufacturing process at the time of the old flat 
table coating. 

Dm-ing the banquet music was furnished by the 
Autographic Orchestra, C. Murphy leader, and the 
table singing was directed by W. H. Thompson. 
Several parodies appropriate to the evening were 
sung with great gusto. 

Lea\'ing the dinner tables, the party proceeded to 
the top floor of the Assembly Hall where the en- 
tertainment was held. In a few well chosen re- 
marks, Mr. Burrows, as toastmaster, called on Mr. 
Haste and the latter responded with a stirring talk, 
which ended by presenting Mr. Van Allan on behalf 
of his assembled friends, with a massive mahogany 
chime clock. Mr. H. LeB. Gray, former superin- 
tendent of this department, in similar vein, pre- 

sented a duplicate of , the other clock to Mr. Beedham, 
wishing him many future years in which to enjoy it. 
Mr. H. D. Haight spoke a few words of commenda- 
tion to the two recipients. 

Entertainment was then furnished by the 
"Goodness Gracious" quartette from Building 29, 
which was attired in the fashions of twenty-five 
years ago; "Bob" Caine — "A wee drop o' Scotch;" 
Raymond the magician and Hoppaugh and Vaughn 
of Building 48 in their skit "Two Farmers." 

As a fitting climax to the evening's fun the 
Positives played the Negatives in a tight game of 
basketball, which ended with honors about even. 


Interest in Kodak Park's youngest bowling league 
is increasing in leaps and bounds as is clearly shown 
by the increased attendance of loyal rooters at 
every match. Although Building 50 got away to a 
poor start, they are now showing real form and are 
a cause for worry to the league leaders. The 
popularity of this new venture, which is a means of 
providing recreation for employees who work trick 
work, is great and from all indications another 
season will see other departments represented. 




The second annual exhibit by the Kodak Park 
Fur and Feather Club held in the Assembly Hall 
November 30th to December 3rd inclusive, was a 
success even beyond the greatest expectation of the 

Over 400 entries were obtained, consisting of 
almost every type of the fur and feather Ijcaring 
species. Three "Sweepstakes" cups were ofi'ered 
by the K. P. A. A. in addition to the regular rib- 
bons. The first of these cups was won by Fred 
Habel, second by Charles Smith and the third by 
W. Bathrick. 

Among the best specimens shown were: 

Emmett Lott's $150 pen of white Wyandottes, a 
fine collection of Blue Dutch rabbits and English 
game bantams, some of these being winners at the 
last Madison Square Garden Show, entered by W. 
Bathrick; Charles Smith's wild mallard ducks and 
Frank Armstrong's $.50 doe, also a winner at the 
New York show last season. A large exhibition 
of canaries was entered by A. W. Wright and J. 
Jansen's pen of excellent white Leghorns was given 
blue ribbons. In the canine section, Mrs. Robert 
Caine's Airedale took the blue ribbon in its class 
as also did F. W. Brown's Chinese and Belgium 
poodles, George Fien's Boston terrier, and a 
French bull entered by J. Compton. One other 


entry which helped to make the exhibit interesting 
was a pair of goats by F. Ewell. 

At the close of the Kodak Park show the entire 
exhibit was moved to Exposition Park to compete in 
the Industrial division of the Flower City Show, 
being awarded the Industrial Cup offered by the 
Flower City Poultry Association. 

The success attained by the Kodak Park Club 
during the past year is very gratifying, and every 
member is looking forward to the next exliibition 
which promises to surpass even the show of 1920. 





Kodak Park is a large and growing plant, and if 
it is to remain so, v,e must ever be on the lookout 
for improved methods. Therefore any system that 
is adequate and quite satisfactory today may be 
outgrown and impracticable tomorrow, for change 
will always follow close on the heels of growth and 

We have seen a great many changes at Kodak 
Park in the last few years. And the gradual 
passing of the old Registration Building — "as she 
used to be" — we mean, is one that has escaped none 
of us; for didn't we get our introduction to Kodak 
Park in it — the employment offices, the hospital. 

ment's electric trucks and fastened and properly 
guarded. The truck then makes a regularly 
scheduled trip around the plant and delivers the 
drawers, which are covered boxes with handles, so 
they can conveniently be carried when taken out 
of the cabinet, to the different pay stations where 
the pay clerk, accompanied by a guard, meets it at 
the entrance to the building. The pay clerk is then 
escorted to his cage by the guard and is ready to pay 
off when the whistle blows. 

In this manner, with our thirty-six established 
pay stations, it requires an average of but four 
minutes to pay off the plant. 


and especially the long row of time card and clock 
racks, their regular spacing and alignment, for all 
the world like a company of soldiers ready for 
inspection, being the not-so-easily-forgotten fixtures.'' 
And then didn't a peculiar interest always center 
on the pay cages along the north wall? 

But look at it today! Large metal drums are 
now stored there which hold silent vigil, where 
formerly the thousands hurried daily to punch the 
clock and where again they waited impatiently on 
Saturday for their pay envelopes. 

This decentralization of the time recording 
clocks, that is moving them into the departments, 
l)rought about the necessity for changing the 
method of paying off and the pay cage very shortly 
followed the time clock into the department, and 
so today, with but few exceptions, everybody is 
paid off in his or her department with no trouble 
and a minimum loss of time, and it is all accom- 
plished in this way: 

The pay envelopes are arranged in the Pay Roll 
Department according to departments or pay sta- 
tions, as the case may be, and placed in a covered 
drawer of a steel filing cabinet omnibus which is also 
a safe. When everything is ready, the omnibus is 
rolled onto one of the Transportation Depart- 


At no time since the introduction of girls' basket- 
ball at Kodak Park have we had a team to compare 
with theone we have together this season. Under the 
able coaching of Charlie Thompson and Jack 
Brightman, the girls have developed into a fast and 
aggressive combination which has experienced little 
difficulty in defeating every team played to date. 
Harriett Noble of Building 2G, Captain of the team, 
is a player of unusual ability and her work at center 
has been excellent. Julia Thayer and Louise Single- 
ton, who play the forwards, are both fast, and have 
little trouble in getting away from the opposing 
guards for several baskets each game. The guard 
positions are well taken care of by Elizabeth 
Fratter and Ethel Stuck. Ethel Stuck has played 
on the team for several seasons and is the best all- 
round guard on any girls' team in Rochester. So far 
the girls have won four games and lost none. 

Following are the results of the games played:

The Kodak Park basketball season is well under 
way. Starting out on Thanksgiving eve with a win 
over the Xiagalks of Niagara Falls, the team pro- 
ceeded to show the Kodak fans that they have the 
goods and followed this victory with another, when 
they met the Washington Excelsiors on December 
4th. In the third game against the Big Brothers on 
the 11th, whom they defeated by the overwhelming 
.score of 42 to 17, the boys demonstrated that they 
are ready to meet the best teams available, and from 
now on only the real class will be seen on the Kodak 
court. Manager Goodridge has booked our old 
rivals, the Owasco Canoe Club, and has also 
arranged games with the Tuscarora Indians, Todds, 
Perintons, Lincolns, Orioles and Bausch & Lomb. 
.\ series will be played with the last-named to de- 
termine the city Industrial Championship, and at 
the rate which our team is going, prospects are 
most encouraging. 

Kodak Park is represented on the court this sea- 
son by the best team we have had in several years. 
Coach Benzoni has had a fine bunch of candidates 
to pick from and has made a selection which will be a 
credit to the Park. Wilbur Woodams, former U. of 
R. star, who is playing right forward, needs no in- 
troduction to the Kodak fans. It is sufficient to say 
that he is the same "Wib" as of old, and his playing 
has been a big feature in our success to date. Oppo- 
site him at left forward is Ralph Tichenor who. 
although a new man at the Park, has made himself 
solid by his excellent floor work and ability to score. 
"Tick" has had the experience and shows it. At 
center, "Hash" McNeill is playing a fine game. So 
far he has not had a real tryout, as the men who 
have opposed him in the games played have been 
so far outclassed that he has not been called upon 
to exert himself. In Cliff Hegedorn, former State 
League player, we have a guard who is beyond a 
doubt the best in this part of the State. The cool 
and deliberate manner in which he plays his position 
encourages Kodak in her race for the championship. 
At the other guard we have "our ovm Rip" Benzoni 
who is showing his usual form and ability as a coach 
and a leader. Earl Jones and Bob Heaney, two of 
last year's men, are also playing and doing their 
share to put Kodak on top. Jack Brightman, 
Kodak's little favorite, is having his best year. In 
the Big Brothers game. Jack scored 13 points in the 
10 minutes he played. Following are the results of 
the games played to date:

Although Department No. 50 was not repre- 
sented by a team in the fall .series of the noon-hour 
league, several of the employees played with the 
different teams in the outfit and showed up to good 
advantage. Particularly "Rip" Benzoni who played 
at third, .second and catcher for the I/Cgion 
team. If raspberry razz will grow hair, "Rip" 
will be eligible for the "House of Davids" next 
season. "Silent" John Shepherd, king of the 
"Razzers' Roost," assisted by the office force, was 
heard to advantage every day. 


After four years service "Jack" Free, one of the 
popular employees of the Kodak Park Main Office, 
left to take a position with the H. W. Dubiske Com- 
pany of Chicago, as one of their local representatives. 

'J.\CK'- FREE 

"Jack" possessed marked ability as an enter- 
tainer, and was reader with the Kodak Park Glee 
Club for several seasons. He has appeared in 
amateur theatricals about town during the past 
few years and will be well remembered as one of the 
principals in the cast of "Kodaki San," given by the 
Kodak Park employees some time ago. 

His many friends at the Park wish him success in 
his new venture. 

To Frank Clark, Harry Howell and Sydney 
Gosselin the employees of Department 50 wish to 
extend their sympathy in their recent bereavements. 

Our esteemed fellow worker, Charles Ballinger, 
of the D. O. P. Ctg. was married on November £4th, 
and left for New York on his hone^^noon. While in 
the "Big City" he lost his -SI 1.00 velour hat from 
the top of the Fifth .\ venue bus. Charles hastily 
jumped off, leaving his new bride on the bus and 
had considerable time finding her. However, 
Charles had a fine time and is back on the job at 
Building 35. 

The marriage has been announced of Gertrude C. 
Wilson of the Engineering and Maintenance De- 
partment, and William E. Hogan, which took place 
on Saturday morning, November '•27. 1920, in Holy 
Cross church, Charlotte. The many Kodak Park 
friends of Mr. and Mrs. Hogan extend to them best 
wishes for their happiness. 




On Friday morning, December 10th, James 
Doran died at his home, 1347 Dewey Avenue, after 
an illness of only a few days. His death was 
directly due to a weak heart caused by septic 
poisoning from a severe case of tonsilitis and came 
as a great surprise to all. 


He had been employed in the E. & M. Depart- 
ment at Kodak Park over a period of about ten 
years, where he had won many friends through his 
obliging disposition and keen wit. We unite in 
expressing to his surviving relatives the most 
sincere feeling of sympathy. 

W. R. Meckfessel, Building 36 motor enthusiast, 
has had all makes of cars from a Maxwell to a twin 
Six Packard, but last of all he has been seen driving 
down the avenue in a real car. He'd like to call it a 
Rolls-Royce, but in fact, it's only another member 
of the widely knowai Ford family — ^a coupe. We 
trust he will drive with caution, so as not to exceed 
the speed limit again. 

When she says, "Your number please.''" don't be 
surprised if her wonderfully sweet voice reminds 
you of Galli-Curci, for it may be either Marjorie 
Snook or Loretta Twamley, formerly of the Plate 
Department, both of whom are now duly installed 
telephone operators. Our best wishes are w'ith 
them in their new work. 

At a dinner given by Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Sykes 
the engagement of their daughter to Ferre Marzluff, 
Yard OflBce, was announced. 

Bernice Abert of the Film Spooling and Irving 
Luther were married on the 17th of November. 
We extend our best wishes for their future happiness. 

Lena Burkard of the Film Spooling was married 
on Thanksgiving Day to W^illiam Liebeck. We 
wish the couple all sorts of good luck. 

On Thanksgiving Day, Olive Kane of the Film 
Rewinding and Louis Bohrer were married. W^e 
extend our heartiest congratulations to the 
"newly weds." 


It seems a whole lot to say that the Thanksgiving 
dance, held in the Kodak Park Assembly Hall on 
Friday evening, November 26th, surpassed the 
Masquerade party of last month, but nevertheless, 
this is true. 

To begin with, the decorations were elaborate 
and very beautiful. Yards of crepe paper in yellow 
and white appropriate to the occasion hung from 
the ceiling and around the walls, with paper turkeys 
artistically located about the hall. The orchestra 
platform was also decorated in harmony with the 
surroimdings. The design was originated and su- 
pervised by Ben MacMillan, who was in active 
charge of this feature, assisted by John Brightman 
and Susan LaDine. The mrsic was furnished by 
Damon's orchestra, personally conducted by Fred 
Damon, and was the best heard at Kodak Park for 
some time. 

The party made a lasting impression on who 
attended. These were Kodak people to the num- 
ber of about five hundred, including a large repre- 
sentation of the officials of the company. 

The principal aim of the K. P. A. A. is to provide 
amusement and entertainment for its members, and 
their friends, and it is great to see so many of them 
taking advantage of the opportunity these dances 
afford. Dr. Reid, President of the Association, is 
intensely interested in these affairs and works hard 
to make them successful. 

A novel scheme of awarding prizes was employed. 
Several circles were painted on the floor in different 
parts of the hall, these being numbered. During 
the dance a number was called at which time 
everyone stopped dancing. The person standing 
on the circle corresponding with the number 
called was awarded a two-pound [box of candy. 
Five prizes were awarded in all. 

A very pleasing feature of the partv was the danc- 
ing exhibition given by Norma Zeiner and her 
partner Fred Eritli. Miss Zeiner displayed excep- 
tional talent in this line, and her number was very 
well received and thoroughly appreciated, it being 
necessary for her to re.spond to numerous encores. 
Elizabeth Stubbs played a very pleasing piano selec- 
tion, which in every way did justice to her reputa- 
tion as an accomplished musician. Three solo 
numbers were rendered by Ben MacMillan, which 
made a tremendous hit. Ben possesses a voice of 
imusual quality, and he has appeared in a great 
many of the activities held at Kodak Park during 
the past two years, and has a large number of ad- 
mirers who delight in hearing him sing. 

The evening, taken as a whole, was greatly en- 
joyed, and expressions of satisfaction were heard 
from all quarters on the day following. 

W^e are pleased to announce the double wedding of 
Bertha Smith of 7-1 Locust Street to Wm. B. Fry 
of 208 Weyl Street, and Ruth Peglow of 445 Winton 
Road N. to M. Van Walton of Greece, which took 
place on Christmas day. Both girls are employed 
in the Cine Slitting Department of Building 12. 

William Crittenden and Herman Ganger spent 
their week end in a fishing trip down at Irondequoit 
Bay. They managed to capture one grass pickerel. 



We are happy to learn that a baby boy was born 
to Mr. and Mrs. Paul Lange on Thursday, Decem- 
ber 9th. 

The friends of Mildred Durham of Huilding No. .'50 
will be sorry to hear she left Kodak Park to return 
to her former home at Branchport, New \ork. 

Alfred Ellis, formerly of the E. C. & P. Depart- 
ment, has left the employ of the company to enter 
Mechanics Institute where he will study Electrical 
Engineering. Being a live wire himself, Fred sliould 
get along well with things electrical. 

The Printers' Club was entertained on Monday, 
December 7th, at the home of Mr. James Eilinger. 

The many friends of Walter Townsend will be 
pleased to hear of his return to work after having 
recovered from a serious accident. 

Harry Wheeler and Abe Gorfine are planning a 
trip to Cuba. The boys of the Job Print are getting 
a purse to help them on their way. Abe and Harry

ask Jim Eilinger, he knows. 

Charles J. Price of the Roll Coating Department 
has a new son-in-law. Notice the smile he wears.^ 

Ray Whitmore of the Roll Coating Department 
took unto himself a bride. Miss Gladys Thalman, 
December 3, 19^0. Congratulations, Ray. 

The Plate Department extends to Vic Ayette 
sincere sympathy in his recent bereavement, the 
death of his sister, Ethel, on December 6th.

LEE BRADLEY, Film Emulsion Department 
Result of His Hunting Trip in the Adirondacks 


As a committee, selected by the Kodak Park 
Commimity Chest Executive Committee, we visited 
St. Mary's Hospital on Wednesday, December 1st. 

After being received by Sr. Gertrude, the superin- 
tendent, who expressed her pleasure in having us 
\'isit them, we were conducted through the institu- 
tion by Sr. ^Yilhelmina. 

St. Mary's Hospital was erected in 1857, and has 
been in constant operation since that time. Some 
additions and changes have been made since, but 
the general construction remains practically the 
same. Excellent foresight in the original layout 
of the building is very evident. The equipment is 
of the latest and best, and we were particularly im- 
pressed with the excellent and complete X-Ray 
outfit, and learned with pleasure that our Duplitized 
X-Ray film, which is used almost entirely, is very 
popular in connection with this work at this 

The rooms are light, airy and cheerful, and every 
e\'idence of efficiency is noticeable in all branches of 
the institution. 

We are pleased that we were afforded the privilege 
and pleasure of this visit and feel that this is one 
more of the really worthy institutions which is 
benefited through the Commimity Chest 



L. A. Jones of the Research Laboratory recently 
addressed the club on "The Reproduction of Light 
and Shade." It was pointed out that the produc- 
tion of a picture by the photographic process de- 
jjends upon the reproduction of the light and shade 
existing in the subjects photographed, light and 
shade being due to brightness differences. 
brightness difi'erences are due to two factors, the 
reflecting power of the various objects and the 
illumination incident upon them. The term "tone" 
is frequently used in photography to express 
brightness variations, the tone scale being a scale of 
varying brightnesses. It was pointed out that due 
to variations in the reflecting power, contrast of 
approximately 1 to 40 may be obtained, black 
velvet having a reflecting power of about 2*^, while 
white paper reflects 80*^7 of the light incident upon 
it. The total amount of light reflected by any 
surface, however, depends upon the amount incident 
upon it. Therefore, it is possible to have contrast 
much greater than 1 to -10 due to differences in the 
intensity of illumination. Measurements of natural 
exterior subjects, however, show that the contrast 
of 1 to 50 may be considered as an average, although 
some cases are foimd where the contrast is as great 
as 1 to 250. The term "contrast" as used in this 
sense is defined as the ratio of highest to the lowest 
brightness. The subject in which the contrast is 4 
is considered to be flat or of low contrast, while 10 is 
a moderate or soft contrast, 40 is a normal contrast 
and 250 a very high or extreme contrast. A con- 
trast of 20 and 40 may be considered as tj^pical of 
studio subjects, while in home portraiture the 
contrast may be as high as 100. The photographic 
plate is capable of rendering correctly contrast as 
great as 250 so that it is quite possible in the nega- 
ti\ e to reproduce precisely the tone scale of practi- 
cally all subjects. Printing papers, however, are 
found to have much less capacity for the correct 
reproduction of brightness differences. The highest 
reflecting power may be taken as approximately 
80%, while a good photographic black reflects from 
2 to 6% depending upon the surface of the paper. 
It will be seen, therefore, that the contrast available 
in the print will vary from 40 in the case of glossy 
paper to as low as 15 in the case of dull matte 
surface papers. It is e\"ident, therefore, that it will 
be impossible to reproduce correctly tone scales 
greater than the contrast obtainable with the 
various printing papers. 

Mr. Jones treated the subject with simplicity and 
in detail. The talk proved very interesting and 
was enjoyed by everyone. 

The club meets Tuesday from 6:00 P. M. to 
7:00 P. M., in the Assembly Hall. Anyone desiring 
to become a member can obtain an application blank

Our very popular Miss C. I. Haire of the Plate 
Office has completed her tenth year of business 
efficiency in the department. A very good record, 
indeed. Miss Haire. Here's hoping you'll be with 
us again as many and more. 




On Tuesday, November ICth. we had the pleasure 
of v-isiting the Industrial School on Exchange 
Street, and the Jewish Sheltering Home on Gorham 

Truly a great work is being done at the Industrial 
School. Here, children up to twelve years are taken 
care of during the day, their health, education and 
happiness looked after in a most complete manner, 
and mothers who are sick or who must go to busi- 
ness can leave them, knowing that they will 
receive proper care. 

We were received and conducted through the 
institution by Mrs. C. L. Hanna, Superintendent 
in charge. 

The majority of the children are brought in, in 
the morning, by their parents and called for again 
at night. Kindergarten and first grade are main- 
tained for the very young, the older ones being 
taken out in charge of the niu-se to the public 
school, returning for a hot dinner at noon and 
again after school closes, when they are served a 
lunch and taken care of imtil called for. 

Everything was foimd to be very clean and 
orderly, the children well provided for and happy. 

A charge of five cents a day is made for each child, 
which is used towards maintenance of the institu- 
tion, the balance of the expenses being met by the 
Community Chest budget. 

In where the mother is sick, and there is no 
one to look after the children properly, they are 
admitted at the school and cared for day and night 
until able to be taken home. At the time of our 
visit, there were fifteen such cases receiving atten- 
tion in addition to eighty-five day children. 

At the Jewish Sheltering Home we found that 
thirty-seven hoys and fom-teen girls were being 
cared for by J. S. Hollander, the Superintendent. 
The girls were under the personal care of Mrs. 

At the present time there are three buildings 
recently remodeled and redecorated, in use. while 
a fourth building to be used for infants is rapidly 
nearing completion. 

A very homelike atmosphere existed throughout 
the entire home and every indication pointed to a 
well organized and efficient organization. 

Mrs. Egbert, in expressing Mr. Hollander's senti- 
ments, stated that the home was very well satisfied 
with the fair treatment it was receiving from the 
Community Chest. 

We repeat the ad\'ice of other committees which 
have likewise been fortunate in ha^•ing an opportu- 
nity to visit and see for themselves the new work in 
the charitable and semi-charitable organizations 
of Rochester through the Community Chest. We 
urge also that more people take advantage of the 
invitation extended to the public in general to \nsit 
such institutions and see for themselves the earnest 
effort which is being made to accomplish the 
maximum amount of good with uniform treatment

Since starting to work at Kodak Park five and 
one-half years ago as an office boy. Jack Brightman 
has become one of the best known and most popular 
of the younger men at the Works. 


Although only twenty-two years of age, he has 
displayed great ability as an athlete. He has been a 
member of the Kodak basketball team for the past 
three years and also the soccer team for the same 
length of time. Jack is also an able baseball player 
and participates regularly in the noon hour games. 
His willingness to be of service has made him very 
valuable in the arrangement of details for parties, 
dances and entertainments held by the As.sociation. 
Aside from these, he is also coach of the girls" 
basketball team, which is making such an excellent 
showing on the court this season. 

We congratulate Jack on his many fine accom- 
phshments, and are proud to have him at Kodak

The Recreation Club is well on the road to suc- 
cess. It may he news to know that, to date of writ- 
ing, two hundred seventy-five members are actually 
participating in athletics under the Club's rules. We 
are maintaining a fully equipped Girls' Basketball 
team and an eight team Indoor Baseball League, 
six Men's Bowling teams, eight Girls' Bowling 
teams, a main Bowling team in the CameraLeague, 
and the Camera Works Bowling League composed 
of eight teams. Senior and Jimior Men's Basket- 
ball teams are being formed, and the outlook for 
representative teams to compete with industrial 
athletic clubs is bright. 

In order to supervise the many activities which 
will be involved imder the club. Managers are elect- 
ed by each particular group to manage their affairs. 
Following is a list to date: 

Main Girls' Basketball Team Mahle Kane 

Indoor Baseball League Xorman Robinson 

Camera Works Bowling League. . . . (Being elected) 

Office Girls' Bowling League Helen \\'hite 

Camera Girls' Bowling League Leo Xowack 

L'ps and Downs Bowling League. .Leslie Hammond 
D & E Bowling League William Seuffert 

All these teams are looking for rooters. All of us 
may not be athletes but everyone enjoys watching 
a game, especially if the players are our friends and 
accjuaintances. The officers of the cluh) want every- 
one to feel that he has an interest in everything 
that goes on. If you wish any information relative 
to the club's activities, address a letter to the Secre- 
tary, or to any group manager and it will be cheer- 
fully given you. It's your club. Use it. 

The Breeders' Association has again voted to ex- 
hibit its pet stock with the (ienesee Valley Poul- 
try Association, and the Camera Works entry 
promises to be a very attractive one. Al Richards 
is chairman of the Breeders' As.sociation, and a very 
capable committee composed of Al Frank. Jack 
Ruscher and Edward Frank has arranged the 
premium list, and details of the exhibition. 

The Recreation Club allotted $100 from its 
budget to provide for prizes and expenses, and 
several interested persons in the factory donated 
various gifts. The official catalogue can be obtained 
from the chairman or the secretary. 

Visit the show at Exposition Park from January 
3 to 8. 

Look for the Camera Works tag on the exhibits.

Are you a member of the Camera AVorks Fiction 
Library? The number of readers is steadily increas- 
ing and an average of ninety-five books is ex- 
changed per week. There is practically no limit to 
the size that the library can grow, and the Rochester 
Public Lilirary will co-operate with us to make this 
feature of employees' service one of real value. Miss 
Rose Knobles is the Librarian in charge, and she will

"For it's always fair veathcr 
J]'hen good fellows get together." 

The above quotation is rather incomplete witliout 
the next line of the song, which says "with a stein on 
the table, and a good song ringing clear." Since the 
popular (?) Volstead Act was passed, the stein, of 
course, is taboo, l)ut they can't stop us — to date of 
wTiting — singinga good song around a table equipped 
for feasting! At least that's how we found it at the 
first Office Men's Banquet, which was held at the 
Powers Hotel on Wednesday, December 1st. 

The affair was quite informal, and the speakers 
were warned not to talk "shop." Almost everyone 
spoke who wanted to (and j)ossibly some who 
didn't) and it was a splendid little "chummy" get- 
together affair. The general chairman — Ernest 
White — captained a staff, comprised of Harry God- 
dard. Herliert Thorpe, George Whitcomb, Roy 
Dodge. Charles Irwin and Frank O'Brien. The 
toastmaster was Harry Spoor, and "many a jest 
and quib quoth he!" Meyer Davis sang two selec- 
tions. Billie LawTence featured a black-face act. 
McClymont and Heggiedida little Scotch turn, and 
Herbert Thorpe sang tenor solos. Everyone sang 
popular under the guidance of Henry As- 
brand and the "rafters rang with melodee." 

The l)oys all that the afi'air will be repeated 
next vear. 


The Eastman Savings and Loan Association is an- 
other of the many oj)portunities for progress which is 
offered to Eastman employees. It is an absolutely 
safe investment and should appeal to the small de- 
positor. In view of the fact that the Association 
systematically handles weekly deposits, the accumu- 
lation of which bears certain interest, the projjosi- 
tion is attractive especially in these post-war days 
of "Bubble" investments. The prime object of the 
Association is to encourage thrift by way of invest- 
ing a stated sum each week from your earnings which 
can be set aside either as an investment in the Asso- 
ciation, or for the purpose of buying a home. Every 
man — or woman — realizes the economic security of 
possessing a dwelling place, and here is an oppor- 
tunity to secure an unbiased opinion on real estate. 
The Legal Department is co-operating, and invest- 
ments of land property are carefullv investigated 
before you are ad\nsed to purchase. 

If you do not thoroughly understand the details 
of the Association, you are invited to apply for in- 
formation to the Industrial Relations Department.

The Executive Committee of the Recreation Clul) 
meets the first and third Wednesday in each

ect which will enhance its popularity in the factory 
and in the community. The club welcomes sug- 
gestions from its 2400 members. Won't you do 
your share to make it a complete success? Send 
your suggestions to the Secretary, Industrial Rela- 
tions Department. They will be carefully considered 
and adopted if practical. This Recreation Club is 
conducted by you, and for you. Do your share! 





We all have our own opinions. One of the char- 
acteristics of an American citizen, viewed from a 
foreigner's eye, is the fact that everyone appears to 
think for himself, in preference to the slipshod 
method of letting the other fellow do the thinking. 
This trait is a fine thing to possess, provided we are 
open-minded enough to view things from the other 
fellow's standpoint, lief ore coming to a final conclu- 

This is a busy old world. We haven't much time 
to dive into affairs outside of our own business. After 
the whistle blows, we are glad enough to snuggle 
down in an armchair, light up the old briar pipe, 
and call it a day's work. 

In view of this fact, we cannot logically come to a 
conclusion until we have considered what the other 
fellow says, can we.^ None of us are specialists out- 
side of our own line of work, so how can we form a 
real opinion of an affair of which we have only time 
to skim the surface.^ 

Let's get down to brass tacks and cite an example. 
How about the Community Chest? I confess that 
/ have never given the matter any deep thought, 
have you? When the "Drive" came last May, some 
of us passed it up, some of us gave as little as we 
could, some of us thought of a round figiu-e, and 
wrote it on the pledge card, and — hardly one of us 
considered what we were doing, and why I 

Possibly we did not have time to think, being too 
blamed busy with our regular job, or possibly we 
were opposed to anyone trying to tell us when we 
should dole out "widow's mite," or possibly we had 
heard of someone at one time or another having to 
pay a big hospital bill. Anyway, the fact remains 
that all of us do 7iot know why it has become neces- 
sary for such a fund as the Community Chest to 
exist, and, even if we do, we do not know much about 
the institutions the fund supports. 

You heard of the various committees formed for 
the purpose of telling us their opinions of the insti- 
tutions. Their reports are a revelation ! Read what 
our own "buddies" say about it, and then ask them 
why they are boosting the idea of organized charity.

These are only a few comments from the visita- 
tions to the forty-one institutions ^^sited by two 
hundred twenty-five of our partners. Isn't the other 
fellow's opinion worth while? Now we know what 
he thinks about it. Let us think for ourselves, and, 
perhaps some of us will have to revise our previous 
decisions on the Community Chest, and its necessity 
for everyone's well-being.

To the Dear Old Camera Works : 

Although we are many miles apart it does not 
keep my thoughts from the Dear Old Camera 
Works of Rochester, N. Y. 

And I am thinking of you every day and wishing 
you were here to talk our dear old times over once 
again this year. 

And I knew I would feel better if I had a line or 
two. And I will write you all a letter soon now and 
tell you all the news and some surprises I had when 
I came here to work. 

Please excuse my delay as my Mother has been 
very ill for weeks and is just improving now but 

Wishing You All A Very Happy New Year. 
Respectfully yours, 

Henrietta A. Aiken. 

(Formerly of Lens Dept.) 

Have you ever noticed the smile that George 
Krembel carries with him.^ George seems to be 
always smiling and particularly so since little Claire 
Philip arrived to bring more sunshine into George's 
home. Congratulations, George. 

The "Jolly Set" from the office held a little gath- 
ering at the home of Alice Schiefen on Thanksgiv- 
ing eve. There was lots of fun and heaps of good 
things to eat. Harry Rutan covddn't keep away 
from the ouija board and to date is a firm believer 
in its occult mysteries and is ])erfectly willing to 
read the future of any interested person's life. 

Have just received the figures on the Christmas 
Candy Sale. 4,713 lbs. of candy. My! what a 
Christmas the kiddies — and we are all kids at 
Christmas time — ^will have. 


The Frank D. "Ace" Guillod Post of the American 
Legion held its final meeting of the year on Fri- 
day, December 10th, at the New York Armory. The 
principal object of the meeting was to elect a com- 
mittee for nominating officers for the coming year. 
Plans were discussed relative to the dance which is 
to be held on Valentine's Day. February 14th. It 
was decided to pay a small salary to the secretary 
and treasurer. 

Plans for the Post Banquet are being made, the 
event being scheduled for January. 

Dues for the coming year — 1921 — are now pay- 
able to Thomas Ainsley, Shutter Room; Willard J. 
Lambert, Kodak Assembling or Roman Meyers, 7th 
floor office. 

All Kodak men who were in the service are eligible 
for membership in the Guillod Post and any of the 
three men mentioned above will be more than glad 
to receive applications for membership. 

The boys of the Milling Department — at least the 
single ones — are evidently jealous of Jack Moffat, 
who married Loretta Martin of the Tool Vault, on 
November 25th. Whether Jack gets jealous or not. 
this is what the boys say: "Loretta is one of those 
yoimg ladies who can make the dullest day seem 
bright." The happy couple have our best wishes. 

Frank M. Page, who has been the Camera Works' 
Chief Accoimtant for many years, has left us to 
take a position at the Main Office. Mr. Page was a 
favorite with the ofiSce force, having worked witli 
them for nineteen years. 

The employees of the Inventory. Payroll and Cost 
Departments assembled in the committee room for 
the purpose of wishing Frank all kinds of good luck, 
and incidentally to present him with a traveling bag 
as a mark of their appreciation. The presentation 
speech was made by William Lawrence on behalf 
of the above mentioned departments. 

Myron J. Hayes has succeeded Frank Page as 
Chief Accountant and Irwin Briggs has been 
appointed as his assistant. We are always glad to 
print news of promotions, and while we are on the 
subject, we might mention that James Wright is 
now foreman of the Cost Department and James 
McClymont is his assistant. To all of these well- 
known figures we offer our hearty co-operation, and 
good luck to them all. 




Some of us who have been with the company for 
ten years will remember Edith Pococke, who was 
forewoman in the Lacquer Department at that 
time. Her husband, Charles R. Chatfield, works with 
the millwrights, and her brother is one of our tool 
makers. We are glad to publish the above picture, 
for it is always a scource of pleasure to hear from 
employees whom we knew years ago, especially if 
the evidence registers such a charming trio of chil- 

Charles Jackson, who for years has worked in the 
Kodak Assembling Department, has been ill for 
some weeks at his home on Warwick Avenue. The 
latest reports tell that Charlie is slightly improved, 
and his many friends wish him speedy recovery. 

Tom Downs, sub-foreman in Kodak 6th, is to 
be congratulated on an increase in his family, the 
new arrival being a bonny little girl. 

Walter Scott of the Tool Room has sold his alarm 
clock because he has a 9>^ lb. baby girl to wake him 
up in the morning — and sometimes during the night. 
Hurrah for "Scottie!" 

George Kraft of the Inspection Department has 
been on the sick list for some time. We're glad to 
hear that he is recovering his health and will be with 
us again in the near future. 

BobCheesman and Biu"dettEdgett went on a very 
successful hunting trip recently, and bagged every- 
thing the law allows. "Edgy's" friend, Al Glea.son, 
who is an expert in finding the hiding place of 
pheasants, did not accompany the boys this time, 
which made their success all the more gratifying. 

Charlie Houck, the genial foreman of the Inspec- 
tion Department, is risking his fortune in onions. 
These are strong indications of his cornering the 

Carl Bailey. Tool Room, is the proud daddy of 
Kathleen Marie, born November 2t)th. Congratu- 
lations, Carl. 


The Fifth Annual State Safety Convention at 
SjTacuse, held from December Cth to 10th, was an 
important event. Experts on safety discussed and 
suggested new ideas and appliances, the application 
of which is necessary to the modern industrial world. 
The Camera Works, always foremost in adopting 
new ideas for the safety of its employees, was well 
represented at the congress. The management sent 
the following people: 

Lutie Hondorf, Richard Jennings, Frank O'Brien, 
Sam Barons, Tom Allen, James McCiary, Arthur 
Wygant, Herbert Fry, Earl Carson, William Watts, 
Walter May. Edward Freislich, George Perry, 
lioland McDonald, (ieorge Helbing. 

The reports from these delegates will make inter- 
esting reading, and we hope to pubKsh in the next 
issue the salient points regarding safety as seen by 
our representatives.

The above picture is very seasonable at this period 
and it shows us the only .son of George Toates, Rep- 
resentative in the Crease & Cover Dej)artnient. 
Little Graydon Toates is twenty-one months old, 
and he seems to enjoy the "wilds of Spencerport" 
as much as his father does. 



AVc wonder liow George Le Froi.s is jji-ogressing 
with his poultry farm? George started it early last 
year, and figured a large profit from eggs in the fall. 
George can imdoubtedly assemble roll holders, but 
when it comes to poultry, things do not work out 
just as he would like them to do. Cheer up, spring 
is coming. 

The boys of the Detail and Estimate Department 
are closely watching their confrere. Harry Spoor, for 
a chance to get in on the ground floor of Harry's new 
invention. It may be a secret, but it's an Editor's 
privilege to scoop up news, so here goes! 

Spoor has in\entetl a brand new incubator. You 
place all the stubs from your street car tickets in the 
incubator, and in ten days you will have full-grown 
street car tickets. Save vour stubs. 

It's hard to get away from our (iardening Associa- 
tion even in midwinter! Four of our most enthusias- 
tic members were presented witli prizes at the Cham- 
ber of Commerce last month for well kept and pro- 
ductive gardens. The neighbors can't beat our 
champion. Frank O'Grady of Queens Street, who was 
awarded first prize in the sixth district. James Wal- 
lace of Flower City Park was awarded first prize in 
the eleventh district, and Irvin G. Harroun, of 
Chandler Street, captured third prize in the nine- 
teenth district. Congratulations to them all. 

Amelia Beerschmitt of the Brownie Department is 
now Mrs. Leib, and Mable Hall has changed her 
name to Mrs. \'an Roo. Best wishes. 

The lady on the right of this picture is the wife of 
William Decker of the Tool Room, and little Mar- 
garet is their daughter. Four generations are depict- 
ed in the photograph and it is a hard matter to say 
which of the four looks the healthiest. 

Clarence Steegar, formerly on the elevators, and 
GilVjert Roberts of the Screw Machine Department 
are both recovering very nicely. They are recu- 
perating in the Adirondacks and we hope to see them 
fully recovered in health and working with us again. 

One of the most debated questions of legislation is 
the so-called "Daylight Saving Bill." It is a 
matter of opinion whether the law served the 
majority in this instance or not. In order to dis- 
cover the consensus of opinion in Rochester, the 
larger industries voted for and against the con- 
tinuance of the measure. The results were as 
follows : 


In favor of daylight saving 63% 

Against daylight saving 37% 

In favor of seven months daylight saving. . 36 . 4% 

In favor of five months daylight saving .... -26. 8% 


In favor of daylight saving 61%

Joe Meisch, an apprentice in the Tool Room, 
took the honors away from Kodak Park — or at least 
some of them, at their masquerade dance last 
month. Joe was awarded a prize for the most 
comical men's costume.

We are sorry to inform our readers that Louis A. 
Bowllan will be absent from duty for at least three 
months. Most of us know that Louis is the man 
that handles the payroll for the entire factory and 
although all of us do not see him he is one of the bus- 
iest men in the building. Louis is suffering from a 
run-down condition and we trust that even before 
his leave of absence expires he will be with us again. 

The boys in the office expressed their regret by 
presenting Louis with a comfortable smoking jacket. 

The great conundrum confronting the office boys 
after the night of the banquet was why Florian 
Schueler was absent from the festivities. The answer 
is — Mildred Anna. Who is she.^ Why — the latest 
addition to the Schueler familJ^ We don't blame 
Florian for missing the banquet but he'll have to 
attend twice next year to make up for it. 



Have you noticed this sign on a door.^ 

It looks important, doesn't it.-* 

Sort of gives you the impression of authority. 

The word PL'SH confronts you on entering, and 
when you get on the other side it's PULL. 

Funny how commonplace things fit into apple- 
pie order, isn't it? 

Ever heard that John So-and-so must have had 
a pull to get his particular job? 

According to the signs on the door, John must, 
in some manner, have worked from the inside, and 
is trying to get out! 

First, you must PUSH. The PULL comes after- 

Didn't imagine there was a sermonette on such a 
thing as a door, did vou? Think it over!

John Lohrman, besides being Foreman of our 
Assembling Department, is our First Aid man and 
everyone knows that John handles both his duties 
well. "Doo," as he is most generally called, began 
working at the camera industry in 18!)4, with the 
Rochester Optical Company when it was located 
on Water Street. He left there in April, 1902, and 
became an employee of the Century Camera Com- 
pany when it was located on Atlantic .\ venue, and he 
has been continuously employed by the company 
ever since that date. 

George Schultz has been appointed fireman at the 
plant to take the place of Louis Kraft who had to 
give up that work on accovmt of illness. 

We are pleased to learn that Alfred Wood. Stock- 
keeper, who has been ill. is improving in health.

The Folmer-Century Bowling League is well 
under way. The Studio team is now in first place 
by a margin of two games with the Cirkut Outfit 
running a strong second. The teams are all showing 
good form with the exception of the Auto Jr. which 
has been on a slump, but with the aid of a few good 
bowlers who have recently come to our plant they 
will soon be in the race again. The high average man 
to date is Weinman of the Metal Department, with 
an average of 171. The high individual game rolled 
so far this season goes to Al Fleming of the Assem-

We have arranged a contest in which you may all 
participate. Of course, we all have a somewhat 
general idea of what the Kodak Magazine means to 
each one of us individually, but perhaps the most 
of us will find it difficult to give the real reason why. 
Just to see how many think they can give a good 
answer to this question, we will give three prizes: 
ten dollars for the first, six dollars for the second and 
three dollars for the third best essay on "Wiat does 
the Kodak Magazine Mean to Me?" Everyone in 
the works is welcome to send in his or her answer. 
Of coiu-se you don't have to be a college graduate or 
a writer of fiction to enter this contest, as these 
es.says will be judged from their merit and not from 
an artistic use of words, an ornamental penman or a 
student of the dictionary. 

This contest opens now and closes Thiu-sday, 
March 31st. Three judges will be selected by the 
Works Manager. Use about 150 words. Write on 
one side of the paper. Sign yoiu- name in the left- 
hand corner of your manuscript, giving your check 
number and the department in which you work. 
Leave a space immediately below your name so that 
we can number your article and cut your name off, 
as we do not want even the judges to know whose 
article they are reading and judging on. 

Now, folks, come on, get in with the rest of us and 
send in yoiu- essays I We will publish the three best 
and the pictures of the prize winners. Send all 
essays to the Plant Editor, and be sure that you 
sign your name. 

You're always in business for yourself. It might 
pay you to give the boss a bargain now and then. 


We have a few new faces on our Shop Safet\- Com- 
mittee who will work on this group for the first six 
months of 19'-21. You will note we have included 
women in our selection for. now that they have the 
right of vote, they should be given some considera- 
tion in safety work. Jennie Walzer of the As- 
sembly Department, Emma Repp of the Metal 
Department and Henry Ruckdeschel of the Press 
Department are the newcomers who will work with 
Clyde Foster and Louis C. Wheeler on this Com- 
mittee. These employees, along with a number of 
others, have enrolled in the Safety School which is 
being conducted by the Rochester Safety Coimcil 
of the Chamber of Commerce every Friday night 
for twelve consecutive weeks.

The year 19:20 shows a great reduction iu accidents 
for the plant. This fact, we are glad to learn, for 
it not only shows a tendency on the part of the 
workers to be more cautious in their movements, 
but on the other hand, the workers realize a saving 
of himdreds of dollars which heretofore was lost to 
them on account of time lost, which naturally fol- 
lows the occurrence of an accident. Out of a total 
of eight accidents for the entire year, three w"ere 
classed as "serious" and the remaining five as minor 
accidents. This is a splendid record, and every 
worker should feel justly proud to think that he 
or she, as one, helped to complete twelve months 
wnth so few accidents. Now let us include in our 
New Year's Resolutions that we will not have a 
single accident in 1921. In order to make this a 
success, it will be necessary to have the full co- 
operation of all Premo workers, and if each one does 
his duty, we believe that the accident per cent, can 
be greatly reduced in 1921. With our working 
force about equally divided and a number of women 
operators on machines, it is quite noticeable that w"e 
did not have one serious accident among the latter. 
This, we believe, is due to education along safety 
lines, as one of the first lessons of persons seeking 
emplojTnent is a sign in the Employment Depart- 
ment which reads, "Unless you are willing to be 
careful to avoid injury to yourself and fellow workers, 
do not ask for employment. We do not want care- 
less people in our employ." One of the outstand- 


A few years ago we had a man workmg for us who. 
in moving a box of work, in some manner scratched 
his finger. This was a very slight scratch, but 
infection set in and as a result the man was laid 
up and has not worked since. This man did not 
report his injiu-y to his foreman. If he had done so, 
there would have been a chance of warding off blood 
poisoning, which would have saved him all this lost 
time. We mention this case because it has brought 
to us the importance of taking care of every small 
scratch or injury at once. 

We supply goggles for all emery wheel or other 
hazardous work where the eye is in danger. Wear 
them, they will protect your eyes. 

In case of an employee fainting or getting seriously 
hurt, pull the whistle in building two, your level. 
This will insure the patient arriving in the emergency 
hospital in less than three minutes. 






ing features of our accident report is that 62^ 
per cent, of all of our serious accidents were due 
to pure carelessness on the part of the employees. 
Summary of our accidents during 1920, is as

The first aid treatment by the Emergency 
Hospital for the year ending December 31, 1920, 
shows 1090 treatments given, 751 to men and 339 
to women. We believe the most of our employees 
realize the value of immediate attention to small 
injuries or cuts, as we have not had a single serious 
infection during the year. This is due to your 
splendid co-operation on reporting to the first aid 
room where you find the nurse ready to give advice 
or to dress injuries of any kind. We are proud of 
this record at the Premo, but hope we can do better 
this vear. 


In talking to a "Daddy" the other day, our con- 
versation drifted to Safety First in the home. He 
told us that, whenever he read in the daily paper of a 
child getting hurt, out would come his pencil and he 
would draw a line aroimd the article. After he was 
through reading, he would hand the paper to his 
children and tell them to look for the mark. Their 
curiosity was immediately aroused and a splendid 
message on Safetv First was instilled in their minds.

It is the desire of the company to assist every em- 
ployee to keep well. Your health is absolutely 
necessary. You should take plenty of exercise, 
see that at least one \\indow is open in your sleeping

food. If at any time you don't feel well, call at the 
Medical Department for consultation. The advice

cember 2nd, is to be a memorable day, for, on that 
date, another of the big shows was put on by the 
Premo Club in the Club Room. \\e believe that 
every employee who took part in this show, and the 
audience as well, should weigh at least 200 pounds 
or as much as one of the actresses, Bridget Murphy, 
for when it conies to entertaining with fun and 
frolic, our employees have no apologies to make. A 
number of the "Premoers" had notice served on 
them that within ten days they were to stage a play 
entitled "The District School at Blueberry Corners," 
and with this short notice, every one who took part 
is to be commended on the splendid way in which he 
handled his part in the show. It is very apparent 
that the employees prefer home talent as standing 
room only was available after 8:15, some late comers 
being turned away (perhaps the manager will give 
us a larger space on completion of the new building). 
The program opened at 8:1.5 with a selection by the 
Premo Orchestra, after which A. A. Ruttan gave an 
interesting talk on "Why it is Important That Each 
Employee Should Endeavor to Work the Full 
Forty-Eight Hours and not Come Late." This was 
illustrated with lantern slides throwii on the screen, 
each slide being explained in full, as for example: 
definitions, labor equals wages; material equals 
raw stock and burden equals overhead. Labor is 
direct when charged to a particular product and 
indirect when charged to a burden account; ma- 
terials are direct when charged to a particular 
product, indirect when charged to a biu-den accoimt; 
burden is made up of every charge that is not 
charged direct to a product, such as indirect labor 
or material insurance, taxes, power, heat, light, 
machines, benches and equipment of all kinds. 
Cost is determined by adding together all items of 
labor, material and bmden. In his comparison of 
workers, Mr. Ruttan said that two fast workers are 
equal to three slow workers. Only two sets of 
equipment are necessary to buy and keep up instead 
of three, and likewise when a worker lays off, all 
expenses keep on just the same, thus being a loss to 
the company as well as to the employee. In 
October, twelve out of every hundred employees 
at the Premo were absent from work for one reason 
or another, and the equipment provided was not 

used. The comjiarison at the other plants was as 
follows: Folmer-Century — six, Hawk-Eye Works 
— seven and a quarter, Camera Works — eight and 
one-half, Kodak Park — nine. Important mention 
should be made that we had fifty-nine employees, 
who, during the same month were not away from 
work a minute or were not late. This equals seven 
per hundred. The names of these employees follow : 
M. Strebler, E. Beal, M. Potter, W. Williams, ¥. 
Seelman, J. Vannell, H. Weber, J. Vogt, J. Young, J. 
Roberts, F. Boeff, F. Salzer, J. Knight, W. Zink, 
A. Sales, G. Walker, J. Huber, W. LeBlanc, E. 
Howard, J. Harrison, F. Dengel, T. Young, A.

C. Foster, F. Grace, A. Knitter, M. Moore, J.

After Mr. Ruttan's talk, the curtain was raised 
and foimd the stage set picturing a room in the 
District School at Blueberry Corners, with the 
School Committee in session, reading over the cor- 
respondence received from an advertisement for a 
teacher. After sending for a few, the difEcidt task 
of selecting a teacher was at hand. After interview- 
ing Miss Dashaway (Jessie Wright), Miss Belinda 
Sharp (Irene Wilt), Miss Simple (Thelma Osborne), 
Miss Smart (Anna Kehoe), the latter was engaged 
for the task of teaching. The first roll call found 
the following scholars in attendance: 

Faithful Snook (Alice Armstrong), Silas Horncake 
(Claude Burnettj. Matilda Billings (Agnes Duffy). 
Mehitable Jones (Luella Wright), Samantha Piper 
(Babe Cahill), Stephen Tucker (Percy Brown), 
Bridget Murphy (Mrs. Alice Green), Ruth Ketchum 
(Kate Titus), "Biff" Dempsey (Harold Fleischer), 
Sally Browni (Margaret Schwartz), Clorinda Geyser 
(Mildred Stritzel), Luther Brown (Foster Crane), 
Bobby O'Lee (Cyril Eve), August Krausmeyer 
(Charles Loock). Susan Crofoot (Leora Yoimghans), 
Tony Pasqualla (Charles Gauch),IsadoreFitzpatrick 
(John Blekkenk). 

It is apparent that this plant is well supplied with 
real entertainers. 


Rali)li K. Hutchings, foreman of the Plating 
Department, acce])ted an invitation from the In- 
dustrial Safety Congress of New York State, to 
speak at the Convention held in Syracuse. New 
York, on December 9th. It being almost impos- 
sible to get a foreman to get up and give his views 
on this subject, Riilph accepted this as a challenge 
and opened the discussion as a foreman, taking for 
his topic, "IIow I Try to Make Safety Work Suc- 
cessful." lie said in part. "S{)eaking in pul)lic by 
the foreman, especially before the managers of tliis 
great work, is new to all of us, but we feel that it is 
a work we all must assume and the sooner we break 
the wall we have held before us as a i)arrier and 
give those we represent a chance to see just how 
well their confidence has been placed, the more 
satisfying our work will be to them and ourselves as 

well. A foreman must serve the management and 
the employees that he represents and without the 
hearty co-operation of the employees as well as 
the management, his work will not be a success." 

Ralph did credit to the foremen in his talk, and 
we believe the last few lines of his subject are the 
real secret to the success of this movement and that 
we must lune the co-operation of the employees as 
well as the management. 

Prize winners at the November Progressive Pedro 
parties held in the Premo Club room were as follows: 
Ladies first. Mrs. R. K. Hutchings; second, Emma 
Kraftschik; third. Mrs. Alice Green. Gentlemen 
first. R. K. Hutchings; second, L. C. ^"heeler; 
third. L. Bachman. 




William was employed February 13, 1912, as a 
buffer and polisher and has advanced step by step 
until now he is Assistant Foreman. He says there 
is no truth in the old adage of "being out of luck 
by walking under a ladder," starting to work on the 
13th, or having a lilack cat cross your path. He 
has passed through all these and is still going, his
